With just a few months before its release, James Cameron’s Avatar— the “event” film most general movie going audiences should have been talking about six months ago as far as 20th Century Fox is concerned– has received a trailer. The whole film is still an enigma, so I’m not sure that giving a non-narrated encapsulation of the film is the best way to explain the plot to folks unfamiliar with it, or whether this film even looks as revolutionary as everyone claims it is. But I don’t care. For my money, it’s a James Cameron film, it’s got Space Marines and it’s got alien planets and critters. So while the trailer doesn’t have me doing backflips, it does look pretty cool as, at the least, escapist/fantastical entertainment.
In the mean time, Utah’s “fly-over” status remains intact as Avatar Day has decided to leapfrog our IMAX theaters all together, wishing us well until December. But hey, enjoy the trailer.
