Avatar the Game – Nintendo Wii Video

October 22nd, 2009

Jim at MarketSaw tips about Avatar the Game footage from Nintendo Wii. Looks cool.

We know that the games (for all platforms) will contain things that we will not see in the movie. But the game developers have collaborated closely with Cameron and his team to make sure everything in the games fits in to the Avatar universe. It’s possible that we thorough the games will see stuff that eventually end up in a sequel to Avatar – Avatar 2.

The game will be out December 1 according to Amazon.com.

Have a look at the video, looks promising, there is a big helicopter in there, a transporter maybe?

Avatar Action Figures

October 20th, 2009

If you are making a blockbuster movie like Avatar, you also need to have an action figures line to offer. And of cause, Avatar has just that.

This post just feature a few of the action figures that’s already available, they are made by Mattel and look like you would expect, a bit plastic. But it’s still fun to have a look at the toys as you get to see a lot of details on the machines and creatures that flash by very fast  in the teaser trailer.

Some of the toys includes a little card that you scan via your webcam and by that creates an on-screen augmented reality robot or character that you can play around with on your computer, it looks very cool and is kind of hard to explain so have a look at the embedded video.

Now you know what to buy you kids/friends for christmas!

If you want to see all the toys, have a look at Amazon.com

“ComingSoon.net has confirmed that 20th Century Fox will debut a new trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar in theaters this Friday, October 23rd! The trailer, which clocks in at roughly around 3 minutes and 30 seconds, won’t be coming online until October 29th. You should really see this in theaters anyways as we’ve learned that this is THE trailer, the one that will show you much more story (as opposed to the teaser trailer previously released).”

Great article about James Cameron and Avatar

October 19th, 2009

Wow, I’ve just finished reading a 12 page long article about James Cameron at The New Yorker (thanks Firstshowing.net for the tip). The article focuses a lot on Avatar but you’ll also get to know Cameron’s earlier work (Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Titanic etc.) and get some insight into what it takes to make a movie the James Cameron way.

So if you have the time to spare, I highly recommend reading it, you wont be sorry. My expectations on Avatar just keeps on building.

Official Avatar blog at avtr.com

October 18th, 2009

The official Avatar blog have been up and running for a while now. It’s a fictional blog where you can get news from the Resources Development Administration (the ones that send Jake to Pandora to mine the planet).

Here’s a summery of what has been published there so far:

“Overhead of one of Hell’s Gate’s central operations rooms shows multiple sets of computer consoles surrounding the Map Table in the center. The Map Table offers 3-D holographic displays of Pandora’s landscapes.” Source

“Schematic of a Massive Truck from user’s manual that is used to transport kilos of Unobtanium from the mines back to Hell’s Gate. This truck is so Massive that the average man on Pandora is only three quarters the height of one of its tires.” Source

“Unobtanium has a unique magnetic field and properties of superconductivity, causing it to levitate as captured in this photo.” Source

“A propaganda poster for the Resources Development Administration, the leader in pioneering outerspace development.”

“This poster promotes the SECOPS sector of RDA.  SECOPS stand for Security Operations, these are the men and women who serve in RDA’s private military, keeping the miners and scientists safe from the dangers of Pandora.” Source

Avatar teaser trailer – Frame by frame

October 18th, 2009

The teaser trailer has been out for a while now and I’m eager to see the full length trailer that should be out soon. In the meantime I have made a frame by frame (or maybe more like scene by scene) gallery of the teaser trailer where you can have a closer look at what’s going on in a more calm way than watching the trailer where a lot of footage are flashing by in high tempo.

Enjoy.
