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.
