The Hot 12-Foot-Tall Blue Alien Girl Adorns New Hi-Rez AVATAR Poster!!

I am – Hercules!!
It looks like Jim Cameron, who masterminded “Aliens,” “The Abyss” and the first two “Terminator” movies, has a new movie coming out. I wasn’t crazy about “Titanic,” but apparently this one’s about a severely disabled human who decides he wants to bone a blue alien giantess, which strikes me as more fun. The project’s new poster:

It hits U.S. cinemas Dec. 18. The peoples of France, Belgium and Egypt get to watch it two days earlier.

    by kjl451

    It seems like you guys are posting stories/rumors that are DAYS old on the net. Why not just skip it? The poster isn't a big deal, we've all seen the image, but why would you want to be last to the party? The site used to be all over fresh news. It's really gone downhill.

    BREAKING NEWS: Hercules Uses The Phrase "Mastermind"

    by crayotic

    I swear, his mandatory use of the word mastermind (or a variation of it, such as Genius) is as annoying as the journalists who use the term "skein". <br><br> Although, I guess at least Jim Cameron is worthy of being called a mastermind. It loses something of its impact when the term is used in a sentence like "Cupid mastermind Rob Thomas" however.

    Lovely eyes and a well photoshopped face.

    by spooky2k

    Sorry, but apart from the eyes (which look great, if a little computerised) this looks like a well photoshopped face. If this is what to expect from the movie, I'm even less excited than I was before.

    The title implied this showed the whole body

    by _V_

    titling this "12 foot tall alien girl" implies that we finally get to see what the full body design looks like (i.e. how their tails look, do they have digitigrade legs, etc.)...this IS a better full-face shot than we've seen in a while, but it's still not the full design

  • Aug. 4, 2009, 5:22 p.m. CST

    by j2talk

    seriously why is it ALWAYS bipedal aliens (humans but with funny ears,eyes,hair or Fur etc) in these films, that- spoiler here -the hero falls for? Not saying its necessarily a bad thing but how about something NEW-least one of this summers movies has tried something a bit different with its aliens...

  • Aug. 4, 2009, 5:31 p.m. CST


    by jobs_are_for_wimps

    Still not as bad or overused as "phenomenal". God I hate that fucking word. All the sudden everything is phenomenal. My tuna salad was phenomenal. Some idiot on American Idol is phenomenal. The half of the blue cat woman's face looks phenomenal... Start listening for it and you will hear this word to describe every mundane and worthless thing in every illiterate schmuck's life.

    Most life on Pandora actually isn't bipedal

    by _V_

    previews of the toys for the movie reveals that MOST life on Pandora actually has six legs. Leading me to speculate as to whether the Na'avi ORIGINALLY had an extra pair of limbs and they atrophied over time, or if they're...."hidden"....

    by Sloopjohnb

    Everything I've seen and heard from this film (which, admittedly, has been very little) looks mediocre/generic. All the hype behind this film is going to lead to disappointment across the board unless this film is a fucking masterpiece. The same thing happened with The Dark Knight; I was expecting Bergman and instead I got Batman.

    "a severely disabled human who decides he wants to bone a blue alien giantess" How infantile and primitive do the articles on this site have to become before I kick AICN out of my favourites?! "fuck,, blow, boner, suck dick" en masse, and not one well written interview or review in months. Seriously, how do you guys stilll sell ad space? And how come that directors all make such a big deal about Mr Knowles? The man can´t write one sentence without stupid comparisons and references. Is AICN REALLY that relevant for ticket sales?

    and I saw all of the footage. I'm not sure how the story will turn out (I felt that the story Cameron told in Titanic was pretty fucking lame), but if anyone's complaining about the way the movie looks, they're probably watching The Last Airbender. <P> Cameron is using 3D not as a shock tactic (unlike The Final Destination), but as a storytelling element. It's been a couple of weeks now, and I'm still thinking about the footage I saw.

    I have a little issue with the story....

    by Cervantes

    ....Okay, I know this this is bound to be amazing-looking and ACTION-packed with fabulous set-pieces involving 6-legged aliens, given it's Cameron and Weta after all...but I'm getting a little concerned that this is going to involve TOO much inter-SPECIES 'romance' what what I've come across so far... Now I don't care if this 12 foot talk blue catwoman DOES resemble a certain miss Saldana a little, but this might REALLY stretch things for audiences in general. Oh, and the various 'half-face' posters so far been less than inspiring. Hell, any of the artwork shown from the near-complete toyline would have been better! But at the end of the day, the naysayers said Cameron's 'TITANIC' would sink at the box-office too....

    If the script I read is any indication, Worthington and Sigourney Weaver are in their "avatar" bodies for most of the second half of the film. So it will be easy to buy his character falling in love with Saldana's.

    It’s a goddamn poster and that useless lump of shit Faraci has been ragging on this and all his little group of ass kissing sycophants have been lining up to trash it as well since they have no opinions of their own. That asswipe had decided that he was going to hate on Avatar before he even saw a fucking frame of footage because of some beef he has with Fox about who fucking knows what. This is the exact same shit he pulled with The Dark Knight last year. He snorted with condescension at every piece of marketing Warner Bros. threw out at hacks like him and it’s probably because the studio didn’t suck him off.<br> <br>Is it a good poster? Not really but it’s probably a teaser poster. Will the movie cure cancer? No. Will it fuck my eyeballs? Given James Cameron’s track record I’m willing to bet that at the very least it’s going to be highly entertaining while not being very profound nor do I expect it to revolutionize cinema.<br> <br>Finally, I have no delusions about Avatar, it’s just a movie, but I am excited that we are finally getting to see Cameron working with the limitless possibilities of CGI and I am looking forward to the flick.<br> <br> By the time James Cameron was 35 he had made The Terminator and Aliens meanwhile Devin Faraci is in his mid to late 30’s and is only known for being a narcissistic, pretentious douchebag and one of the most despised people in the geek community who laments the lack of journalistic integrity on the web while he makes Twitter jokes about Mike Tyson’s 4 year old daughter dying. How deep and thoughtful.

    by Hercules

    With your bluejeans and your rock and roll. <p>James Cameron, the writer-director who gave us "Terminator," "Aliens" and "The Abyss," is now making a movie about a 12-foot-tall blue Zoe Saldana. And you claim this is your attitude: "Eh, pass. Seen it. I think there's a new Katherine Heigl movie I'd rather to see that weekend." <p> Here's what I think. If Fox decided not to play "Avatar" in your city, you'd cry and cry and cry, then cry some more, then embark on a fucking pilgrammage to the nearest cinema playing "Avatar," even if that cinema was in Istanbul.

    by Cervantes

    While I know that the Humans are 'controlling'/ 'entering' their half-Human/half-Na'vi DNA 'avatar' bodies, I still think it's a little worrying that any Human doing this with a lifetime of Human experience and 'thought processes' beforehand would think it's somehow acceptable to enter into what is STILL an inter-SPECIES relationship with a TRUE blue-tailed cat alien, given that they know they are still Human ultimately.... Just strikes me as kinda creepy, and I wonder if audiences will buy that in general. Perhaps Jake's character will just be stringing this female alien along who just now sees a male that looks very like her own species? Although I think that the Na'vi KNOW this is only Humans playing at being a Na'vi, so surely any kind of 'romantic liason' would be equally distasteful to them also.... Perhaps it will end up a purely 'platonic' or 'unrequited' relationship? Who knows, but I know this movie WILL look amazing, regardless of this particular outcome.

This and the promise of 3D we don't need, and the "copulation of one's Bulbus oculi" ridiculous tag line here <BR><BR> Reminds me of the hype behind the Segway. They built that thing up so bad and when "IT" was finally announced, please said...

    But don’t worry because the 200 man team of scientists, that Cameron hired during pre-production, were able to design the Na’vi’s biology in such a way that it fucking completely fucking makes fucking perfect fucking sense.

    The Avatar Backlash...

    by Jobacca

    This whole thing kind of reminds me of Serenity/Firefly. When Serenity came out,the Browncoats absolutely fucking SPAMMED the internet telling people how awesome that film was and how everyone on the face of the earth had to see it three times so their beloved Firefly would be brought back. They were SO FUCKING ANNOYING,that I boycotted the movie for a good two years. Then a friend finally gave me the DVD's of the show,got me hooked,and then I saw the movie and loved it. Point being,AVATAR may very well be the eye-fucking spectacle we've all been promised,but the hype alone has already made me want to pass on this. Cameron and his crew need to Shut The Fuckup and start letting this flick speak for itself....if its able.

After twenty years' sabbatical, the dude who directed STAR WARS was gonna come back, with today's special effects to finally realize his imagination, to DIRECT ANOTHER STAR WARS MOVIE!!! And that first trailer!!! No way was it gonna be bad ...</p><p> Aw, hell, you guys know how that turned out. Anyway, Cameron is definitely eighty times the director Lucas is ... but so was Spielberg. And INDY IV happened. Maybe I'll reserve judgment until there's at least a trailer, but I have a feeling we're all gonna wish he'd put this money and effort into a TERMINATOR sequel. There's an awful lot of "Oh. Is that it?" going on here, and I'm afraid it'll only get worse.

    After Bill Mechanic was fired because Fight Club wasn't an instant box office hit, making a movie for Fox is career suicide. I want Avatar to be a great movie, I want it to succeed financially. I just don't see it happening. Right now there's just hype and nothing to back it up, except for Cameron's track record. The footage they show better be mindblowing, because over the years of waiting for info they never got, people have become numb, and stopped caring about this movie.

    Horrible, just horrible marketing!!!

    by joergn

    Really, who´s supposed to give a shit seeing that poster? No one besides some fanboys knows anything about that upcoming flic. No teasers, no interviews, rarely any glimpses regarding the look of the movie. I know, Cameron wants to suprise the fans but Sci-Fi just doesn´t play for the common audience (anymore). And that poster is just another example of bad marketing. It´´s too simple and uniteresting to tease the everyday moviegoer and the letters "from the director of...Titanic" won´t do anything for the Sci-Fi-fans! I´m surely going to watch this but I´m affraid that a possible new quality franchise will totally bomb just because of lousy marketing!

    But Motoko, Its Rated PG-13!!!

    by LaserPants

    Didn't you say that ALL Pg-13 movies were shit? Don't bother answering because, I KNOW YOU SAID THIS! ANd so do you. How funny that it suddenly doesn't matter anymore.<br><br>On a related note, I think its WAY more lame that people (only on AICN, because outside of AICN nobody cares about this AT ALL), have already decided that they LOVE this based on nothing. Based on Cameron's involvement, who, I'm fucking sorry, IS NOT a great director. Good, arguably, but great? An All Time Great? Nah. Sure, he made some cool flix -- notably, ALIENS and TERMINATOR -- which is more than I'm likely to ever do (not that I'm even trying, making movies seems like a HUGE pain the ass), but he's NOWHERE NEAR as good as like a Kubrick or Kurosawa, or Lynch, or Scorcese, or Copolla (before he totally lost his mind, of course). Shit, I don't think he's even as good as Spielberg, and I generally can't stand Spielberg's films. He's good, he certainly spearheaded some technical advances in film, he also made one of my all time favorite movies -- ALIENS -- but he's NOT one of the worlds All Time Best. I think the Lucas analogy is apt -- Lucas is another smart guy who made technical innovations who made a couple of good movies nearly 30 years ago (okay and ROTS, since I liked that). That's EXACTLY who Cameron is. Exactly.<br><br> I'm sure that AVATAR is going to be, at the very least, a fun, cool movie. I can't imagine that he would fuck it up that bad, and the premise does sound cool. So I'm definitely going to see this, definitely think its going to be good. But "game-changer"? Nah. And if it is a "game-changer", why aren't you showing any of it? Its like their hiding something. Hiding that its not that great, perhaps? That its good, but we've seen it all before? Thats what it seems like.<br><br>In terms of EYE RAPE, that there nifty TRON trailer ALREADY raped the world's eyes. EVERYONE I know, from the casual consumer of occasional geekfilm to the RAGING FANBOYS n' FANGIRLS went completely apeshit for that trailer. Not so much for a giant picture of a Thundercat.<br><br> The proof is the pudding. Show us this "game-changing" pudding or politely shut up and get outta the way - you're blocking our view of the TRON trailer with your lame looking poster.

    Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

    by I AM ROCKO

    Why does the photos and some of the footage I have seen of the video games, some of the creatures and the ships remind me of the Final Fantasy CGI film from 8 years ago? OK I admit the jury is out until I see the film and one could argue that the FF:STW was heavily influenced by sci fi films made my Cameron and co but still...I am not sure what all the hype is about to be honest, it a $200 million dollar tent pole release Xmas movie directed by James Cameron, after a ten year hitaus and is mixing live action and CGI with some stuff in 3D- it has all been done before in various incarnations...

    Whatever Herc...

    by TopHat

    ...You see how the contributors are going to handle this movie already? Its THE PHANTOM MENANCE all over again; Tear down anyone who doesn't cum in their pants about it. "This is OUR movie! Join us geeks! This is our REVOLUTION!!" If you think I or anyone else is embelishing when comparing the reactions to this movie to the prequels, go search for any of the articles written when PHANTOM MENANCE was coming out. And keep in mind that a lot of them were written BEFORE any footage was seen of it. It was all just blind hope and snobbery, especially from Harry; Go search for Moriarty's early review for PHANTOM MENANCE. Notice the LONG essay written by Harry before Mori's review basically discrediting Mori before you've even read the review. Then read the "review" Harry posts after Mori's ultimately positive but not estastic review. Its supposedly written by a woman claiming to be a teacher and it states how all the "grown-ups" who don't absolutely ADORE this movie are prentenous and that her children (students) loved it and that's all that matters. Harry pretty much read mori's "meh" reaction and went about "cleaning up" as much as he could without just refusing to post it. I'm willing to bet that Harry's comments in the beginning of the review combined with the "review" sent in by the "teacher" is longer than Mori's actual review. They're going to do the same thing with this movie folks. No matter what, the people on this site are going to love it. And they're going to make sure to talk down to anyone who doesn't. The "film geek" in the vain of the contributors of this site has become almost like born-again Christians in this respect; grouping together under a belief that they feel and/or know something more than anyone else and are better people because of it, and therefore should be given things that all the "naysayers, disbelievers" etc. shouldn't. And they spend money on trickets and other things to show their "love", thereby becoming bigger consumers and being listened to more by the corporations that churn out their "religion". Like the right has become a breeding ground for these fanatics, the movie industry has become the same for these "film geeks". Everything is made for them or children because they spend the most amount of money and bash anyone who "puts down" their "religion" (Whichever box office juggernaut is opening that weekend). Cameron and AVATAR are the Sarah Palin of movies right now. Better vote for them non-believers, or you're going to Hell.

    there's a difference between establishing a franchise that you've created in which you can do endless things...and have whatever rating (PG13) and then theres the terminator series which you are referring---the first three were R, and then to go and make the next one PG13 lessens the impact...they couldve done so much more. had cameron made aliens PG13 we would be having this conversation weakens the franchise..ROBOCOP would be another example..the third one was PG13 and it was horrid.

    by VXXXJesterXXXV

    I understand the point in putting Titanic on the poster based on the money it made and that chics will decide it looks cool based only on that. But wouldn't it make sense, considering this is an epic sci-fi movie to put Terminator 1or2, Aliens, or something of that nature on the poster? The Titanic crowd doesn't seem quite like the crowd this movie will appeal to.

    Soon to be Ignored

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    I can't wait to see this do the relative box-office of BEOWULF, which is all anyone is going to see it as - "Wow, it's one of them computer movies!" They could spend $500trillion dollars on the effects, put the movie in 3-D with Smell-o-Vision added, dance in the streets advertising free beer at the auditoriums, and people would ignore this. Just look at what happened at ComicCon. The geek crowd went rushing to their blogs to proclaim it ... kinda OK, and the average person remained totally unaware of it. Consider that they're going to show a BIG CHUNK RELAIVE TO THE RUNNING TIME of this movie for FREE because they can't drum up interest any other way. This project is beyond doomed, and may destroy a studio in the process, and will almost certainly destroy the bankability of one James Cameron, who really ought to know better. It's a SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE ABOUT A HERO WHO'S NEVER IN DANGER BECAUSE HE'S USING A PUPPET ... WHO GETS TOGETHER WITH A BLUE THUNDERCAT IN THE JUNGLE TO LEARN THE BEAUTY OF NATURE. Consider that. Just ****ing consider that, all you proclaimers that it's going to be the biggest box-office hit of all time. You're NUTS.

    Wow, the underage wankers are out in force on this thread. You know "Avatar" is rated R, thus you'll have to watch it with your parent or parents, right? Hehe. Or you can just sneak into the theater somehow. Because, in all likelihood, you'll probably want to.<p> Two opinions:<p> *"Titanic" was a tremendous film. Period. From a writing, acting, and effects point of view, it hit a 550-foot home run. The story was moving and layered, even beautiful, and only those scarred with know-it-all jadedness would profess otherwise.<p> But you're welcome to your opinions.<p> *Those of you who've written things like "This movie [...] was made to sell Toys and Happy Meals" don't have a fucking clue. About anything. At all. But you'll figure this out for yourself in ten years or so and wonder how the fuck you ever could've written what you wrote.<p> Thus I forgive you.<p> *I think the poster looks cool. It's a blue-faced alien chick, yes, but I like her unwavering eyes and the fact her image is dark and subtle. It makes me want to know more. Plus I have a feeling "different" posters will arrive at some point for those of you who can't deal with subtlety.<p> Thus you'll get what you're looking for. And everything will be cool. Don't worry.

    I must be scarred with Know-it-all jadedness, 'cause I thought the story in Titanic (the love story, anyway) was ridiculous pap.

    by Cobbio

    Indeed you are jaded, gavdiggity!<p>Hehe. I mean, I don't you know from the AICN logo at the top of this page, so I'm sure there's a lot more to you, but I'd say anyone who wasn't at least a tiny bit moved by Jack's sacrifice has never actually been in love. Deep, life-changing love. It's the thing that fends off jadedness. This is what I know.<p> You can say the story is "ridiculous pap," and that's fine. You're welcome to your opinion. But I wonder if you actually saw the movie or not.

    It's cool, Cobbio...

    by gavdiggity

    I had this same discussion with a lot of people when the movie came out. Yes, I saw it... I saw it in the theater behind three sobbing old ladies. <P> I guess I don't define a cliched relationship between two stereotypical characters (the rouge with the heart of gold and the feisty rich girl trying to break free of her confining family) as romantic. <P> To me, the first fifteen minutes of Up was a thousand times more moving than the entire story of Jack and what's-her-face (was it Diane?).

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 5:19 p.m. CST

    Uh, make that ROGUE with the heart of gold

    AVATAR is PG-13

    by ThusSpakeSpymunk

    Just so YOU know, AVATAR is a guaranteed PG-13. It's not 'R.' That's part of the reason everyone knows how horrible it's going to be.

    by Quake II

    I hope I can join you guys on this as I've been a Cameron fan from the beginning (always rushed out to see his stuff in the theater more than once), but Avatar? Looks like a kid's movie. A very well shot, beautifully animated 3-D kid's movie, but still not targeted at adults. Am I wrong? It seems they're marketing this to the 7-15 year old crowd. It's going for a PG rating I hear as well. I'm just a lot more excited to see Inglorious Basterds, Tron Legacy and Iron Man 2. Waaaay more excited.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 8:41 p.m. CST

    Just read above my post that Avatar is PG-13

    by Quake II

    I'm sure it won't be rated R as someone stated above. No way a movie studio would put up 300 million for an R rated film. Never. And I will see it of course and I won't bash it unless it deserves it. In the past 10 years, Cameron has turned into a Howard Hughes type personality that would rather go in submarines & film boat wreckage for Imax theaters than make actual movies and entertain his base audience. He may be to eccentric to know what's cool anymore is what I'm saying.

T2 and aliens had shitty toys made too. the reactions to 25 minutes footage shown were GREAT! and read that - TWENTY FIVE minutes, of the BEGINNING of the movie. i'm sure the studio want cameron to spoil all the money shots asap to get all your pussy wet, but be grateful he holds back. he knows what's best for you - you'll enjoy the film more going in a virgin.

    humanoid aliens

    by cloudrider`

    and who's to say that intelligent aliens are NOT humanoid? is the sphere a universal form of a planet, or is there a SQUARE alien planet somewhere? <p> there is a universal pattern to all designs, whether you're living on earth or elsewhere. if ALL planets are uniform in design, could the design of INTELLIGENT BEINGS be uniform as well - 2 hands, 2 legs, 2 eyes, mouth, nose, ears, and standing upright? <p> aliens speaking english is extremely moronic(like in star trek & starwars prequel), but humanoid aliens are entirely possible.

  • Aug. 5, 2009, 11:11 p.m. CST

    there;s a universal design to things elsewhere???

    by Potatino

    do you know something we don't know?... oh and I'm cautiously optimistic about this movie. I want it to be great. I know the director is capable of greatness. I just don't want to get my hopes up too high. I think star was taught me not to get my hopes up too high. Anyway I hope its great.

    by VMS

    Slow down, people. Or are your eyes fucked already? Someone did a screen capture of the Ney'tiri background image from the official site AVATARMOVIE dot com, and added blurry text to it. An official poster image would not be blurry. It would also be available in much higher resolution than... the size of the website's background. Check the official Jake Sully Avatar shot released. His eyeballs are crisp as fuck.

    humanoid aliens

    by the power of GREYSKULL

    the ONLY idea that I've ever come across where this can POSSIBLY fly actually came from Trek - it was a long time ago, but as I remember it some ancient race spread out among the stars and found out there was NOTHING out there - they were IT... <p> so they SEEDED (I think random?) planets with their own genetic material all over the place and basically ALL life that came after in the universe was based on THEIR own DNA... <p> put simply DNA is the SAME EVERYWHERE... <p> if you don't have that you CANNOT have humanoid aliens and to understand why you have to know your EVOLUTION (creationists can leave now) - ok we all know that the "humanoid" structure basically comes from the monkey structure, comes from the rodent structure, which comes from the FISH structure - which comes from the PLANT structure... <p> you trace your genetic heritage all the way back and you have a COMMON ancestor, not just to all animals but ALSO to all PLANTS- the DNA is essentially the same <p> -and don't even get me started on the BUGS

  • Aug. 6, 2009, 1:15 a.m. CST


    by cloudrider`

    'if you dont have that you CANNOT have humanoid aliens...' <p> i take issue with that. what if the bipedal humanoid form is THE chosen form at the top of evolution, for any races, in all the universe. the creatures/environmental conditions maybe different in all planets, but a governing universal pattern do exist. that's why all planets look like basket balls, and none shaped like a football.

  • Aug. 6, 2009, 2:31 a.m. CST

    that eyeball fucking thing...

    by cloudrider`

    can ONLY happen in theater, while you're WATCHING the film. you spoiled brats expecting an eyeball fucking moment with every new avatar pic/info revealed is just moronic! <p> would a close up picture of robert patrick in his liquid metal form fuck your eyeball? did he do precisely that in the film? the trailers for the phantom menace fucked my eyeballs, while the trailers for fellowship of the ring and the matrix did nothing to my eyes. but what happened inside the darkened theaters? the latter two fucked me sideways while phantom menace made me want to vomit. <p> be patience. some poster above said cameron is nowhere near the greatness of kubrick/coppola/etc. yeah well, those guys are not action specialists. when it comes to big budget action cinema, cameron IS the king. you geeks talking shit about avatar while giving careers to lame ass imitators like bay/sommer/mcg/ratner/abrams is laughable. only two kinds of geeks would crap on avatar this early - an idiot and a troll.

    there are plenty of planets that aren't perfect spheres

    by Maniaq

    Mars immediately comes to mind - it's more of a football than, say, a basketball - oh and it's lopsided... <p> I know it recently got demoted from planet status but Pluto is also pretty fuckin far from ok in the perfect sphere department ; also I understand Mercury is also not particularly round - possibly for the same reason as Mars (meteor strike) <p> Mathematicians and Physicists tend to believe in God and see lots of "divine" ratios and whatnot in the universe, while Biologists tend to dismiss such notions as nonsense - from their perspective at ground level <p> ask a biologist or even a palaeontologist if the bipedal form is some kind of "ideal" configuration some time - although these people are all working with TERRESTRIAL life forms and I think the point about DNA was specifically about EXTRAterrestrial life... <p> Best movie that has EVER tackled alien life HANDS DOWN is Michael Crichton's THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN (not that crappy remake with wormholes) - that bad boy didn't even HAVE DNA

    by TheWaqman

    More excited to see Inglorious Basterds? Haven't you noticed Tarantino sucks lately? More excited to see Tron 2? Based purely on nostalgia alone? Because that trailer was nothing special. More excited to see Iron Man 2? Did you see Mickey Rourke? I'm just saying you have your doubts about Avatar, but I have less faith in the films you mentioned.

    by MattmanReturns

    Are you basing that on Death Proof alone? Because both Kill Bill's were pretty good (I don't know anybody outside of talkbacks that doesn't like them). And I saw the Iron Man 2 footage at Comic-Con. There was nothing remotely sucky about it, and Rourke looked badass in motion (and his russian accent was suitably creepy).

    Wouldn't bipedalism and intelligence...

    by SK229

    have to arise out of some sort of need? I always thought bipedalism came about because in one area where apes evolved, the trees became further and further apart so they had to get better at both crossing dangerous open areas and carrying food in front of them in order to survive. I don't see how that has as much to do with whatever the building blocks are as it has to do with what that particular combination of cells needs to do in order to survive and create more of the same particular combinations of cells. <p>Also, dinosaurs are a perfect example of how humans could just as easily not have come up if they weren't destroyed in some sort of cataclysmic event. But at the same time, quite a few animals which evolved in their absence aren't far off in their biological design. So I think it's kind of like whatever life exists on another planet wouldn't be THAT far off from what we could imagine, but it also might have certain characteristics that we can't see working, such as a size well beyond or well below what we would consider sustainable, or some sort of lungs or support system that works off of completely different principles than what we are used to. <p>Just some random musings... and this poster still has a video game feel, but this, more than any other, is one case where we have to reserve judgement until seeing the actual film.

    Cameron is the action king. He understands pacing, being a douchebag about FX (those passive-aggressive nerds on their computers need a 4 star general kicking their ass in order for something to even APPROACH realism), and how to make a sequence part of the actual story, unlike all these other fucktard pretenders.

    Lev Grossman of Time Magazine says 25 minutes of Avatar has a lot in common with George Lucas and the sequel to Fletch... <P>" And I wish they'd given the script some more literary love. It has that functional, George Lucas feel to it." hahahahahahaha <P> <P> "Yeah, there are some question marks about Avatar. I wish the Na'vi weren't such standard-issue National-Geographic exotics. They live in jungles, speak a guttural dialect, bond with nature, have tribal rituals and lore, carry spears, etc. For a bunch of aliens, they're pretty damn familiar." <P> "And I wish they'd given the script some more literary love. It has that functional, George Lucas feel to it. And you get a little impatient with Jake, the hero, who turns out to be this kind of angry jock who's all into breaking rules and smashing stuff. (He's played by Sam Worthington, the cyborg -- spoiler alert! -- from Terminator Salvation.) And there's some real cut'n'paste environmentalism. Heartless corporation rapes verdant landscape for fun and profit. Wasn't that the plot of the Fletch sequel?" <P> "But whatever, I've seen only an extremely fragmentary version of the story. Whereas I got a good look at the effects, and on that front it's clear that they've done what they set out to do. I don't know if Cameron is going to be the one to make a truly great movie with this tech, but somebody is." <P> "Also let me tell you, those Na'vi don't overdo it on the clothing. We can all look forward to a new era of hyper-realistic stripy blue alien side-boob." <P>
