Avatar hits theaters next week, but full on reviews aren’t allowed to be posted at the moment. Over at /Film, they’ve managed to gather some tweets from a few lucky viewers who were able to see an early screening of the film. They don’t reveal too much info but the little they do makes us believe that Avatar will live up to the hype.
Here are the Twitter reactions that were gathered after early Avatar screenings:
@petershall: “The AVATAR buzz is an understatement. That movie was unbelievable.”
@chasewhale: “Just finished AVATAR. Special effects were top notch. The movie ran a little long for my likings but I liked it!”
@comingsoonnet” “Okay, about Avatar?…. WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW! Unbelievable… amazing.”
@MikePereira21: Was blown away by Avatar! For 150 minutes, I was a kid again. Thank you James Cameron! BTW, the groundbreaking 3D was mindblowing.”
@rejects: “I’m not supposed to talk about Avatar… That said, it was a spectacular experience. Like nothing I’ve seen before.”
@markwalters74: “Just saw AVATAR. Not allowed to talk about it yet. Not allowed to say how it’s an amazing visual feast, or that Jimmy C’s still got the gift.”
@dmann11: “Holy effing crap!!! Avatar was FREAKING AWESOME KICK ASS SWEET!!!!!”
@TheGate: “For the record ‘Avatar’ was worth the $400 million, and no it is not even remotely “vomit inducing”.
Could it all be true? It sounds like Avatar may be a great movie after all. Hopefully this type of buzz spreads like wildfire because the film will need all the help it can get. With a massive budget and no preexisting material to fall back on, Avatar is a rare breed. It’s a big budget film based on an original story, and these days that’s almost career suicide for any director to take on. Let’s hope that Cameron and company delivers.
What do you think of the early reactions for Avatar?
