    Yay! Who would’ve thought it? Apple just put a teaser trailer of James Cameron’s lat­est project – Avatar – online. Avatar is a 3D sci­ence fic­tion epic, slated for a Decem­ber 18 release this year. The movie is about Jake Sully, a for­mer Marine who was wounded in com­bat on Earth. In order to get rid of the wheel­chair he agrees to par­tic­i­pate in the Avatar pro­gram and con­se­quently to travel to Pan­dora. Pandora’s a planet with a lush rain­for­est veg­e­ta­tion filled with incred­i­ble life­forms. It’s also home to the Na’vi, a humanoid race – just take a look at the poster.

    Humans now encroach on Pan­dora in search of valu­able min­er­als and Sully has become part of this encroach­ment. Humans can’t breathe the air on Pan­dora, so they have to make use of a genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrid – an Avatar. These Avatars are liv­ing bod­ies con­trolled by a human dri­ver through  a tech­nol­ogy that links the driver’s mind to the Avatar’s body.  This way, Sully can be whole again and he soon falls in love with a Na’vi woman. Of course, Sully sud­denly finds him­self caught between the mil­i­tary forces of Earth and the Na’vi. Did I men­tion that there will be epic battles?

    Any­way, you can find the teaser trailer – includ­ing glo­ri­ous HD vari­ants – over at Apple’s site. The offi­cial site isn’t really infor­ma­tive just yet but if you want to give it a try, visit www.avatarmovie.com. I don’t know about you but I’m going to watch this movie in the the­ater. The trailer doesn’t look that awe­some but you never know.
