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.

This is the cover of the upcoming Avatar game on XBOX 360. Nothing new really, but still fun to see.

Not long before the teaser trailer is unleashed Fox has released five new photos from Avatar.







Old Avatar on set photo in new high resolution version

February 12th, 2009 has gotten hold of a high resolution version of a photo I have published earlier here on This version shows of alot more detail, especially interesting are the monitors above James Cameron’s head.

Navi photo from Avatar

February 2nd, 2009

UPDATE January 13:th 2010: More Avatar photos of the Navi’s can be found here.


Jim over at MarketSaw has gotten hold of another photo of what is supposed to be a Navi from James Cameron’s Avatar. It’s a very blurry photo but you can easily see the characteristics of Navis, thin, tall and in this case, female.

Exclusive New Na’vi Photo

Jim here. In keeping with MarketSaw’s tradition of being the best site on earth for all things AVATAR – I was speaking to a very interesting contact within the AVATAR production and he has some confirmations for us about previous photos from the set. While this is someone who I have spoken with in the past, this is the first material from him. I DO TRUST him however – so enjoy. Hopefully Fox doesn’t ask me to remove it!

More importantly, he provided what I think is the first authentic, FINAL rendition of what the Na’vi will look like – provided by this source who is definitely in a position to know.

Here is what he had to say about the Na’vi:
…their faces are very very reminiscent of Jen the Gefling in the Dark Crystal…(but with a hare lip). They are beautiful, not sexy, just graceful. The problems the boss is facing with the CG is getting the ‘graceful’ right. Oh, and the whole ‘Uncanny Valley’ thing…. the view back across it looks amazing from where I am standing.

So it sounds as though Cameron’s somewhat recent distaste for what has been accomplished in AVATAR’s photo realism is now tempered down to ensuring that his creatures are graceful – which is very important for the illusion of being real. This is good news to me! If the quality of the rendering is there and they are now focusing on movement – the movie is almost there!

Confirmation of previous AVATAR photos: “I can confirm that this photo does have multiple props from varying sets.” He goes further to describe what the bed actually is: ”

On closer inspection it looks like it is from the Bio Lab, not overly sure of its purpose (…he did not work in this area). As will become apparent when you see the finished product, there are many many many different types of ‘beds’. Birthing bed / hospital gurney / incinerator gurney / medivac chamber / sleep chamber / transport chamber…” He also says that “the gurney for space travel is normally upright, wall mounted, to save valuable ($1,000,000 per Kg) space on those long space voyages.”

So I therefore believe that the chamber in the photo is for AVATAR connection between human and Na’vi. That’s my final answer Regis.

He also absolutely confirms that the circular area behind Cameron in the official photo is the military COMMAND CENTER.

FURTHER, he confirms that this image of a military man holding an exotic AVATAR weapon is authentic. Not too surprising as Fox hasn’t asked for it’s removal. Seems if the photos are real, they let them stay up.

New Avatar photo – James Cameron on the set

January 12th, 2009

The New York Times has published a new photo of James Cameron on the set of Avatar. This time Cameron is standing in what seems to be a spaceship, in front him there is some kind of capsule. It reminds me about the long distance capsules they use in the Alien movies to put humans into deep sleep when they travel long distances in space. What do you think it is?


New Avatar on the set photo

January 11th, 2009


The latest “on the set” photo from Avatar has been published by Los Angeles Times. On the picture we can see James Cameron and some others looking at a monitor. Not that exciting really. But, better than nothing at this point :-)

Avatar set photo – soldier with heavy weapon

January 8th, 2009

avatar move soldier with big gun

MarketSaw has done it again, he’s gotten hold of some nice photos from the set/lot where they shot Avatar.

The first one looks to be of a soldier posing with a really big automatic weapon, like Jim over at MarketSaw says it looks a lot like the weapons from James Cameron’s earlier work – Aliens – and that cant be bad :-)

The other photo is an outside shot with a woman wearing a performance capturing suit riding a horse.

First official set photo from Avatar

December 23rd, 2008

James Cameron and Sam Wortington

20th Century Fox has just released the first official set photo from the movie Avatar. Not that much to say about it other than it looks to be some kind of craft James Cameron (on the left) and Sam Wortington (on the right) are sitting in. But its really exciting to finally see some movement from Fox, hope to see much more promotion material in the coming weeks/months.

Avatar –

The buzz surrounding James Cameron’s big-budget return to science fiction has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. The film, a mix of CGI and live action using new techniques Cameron himself helped to develop, was shot with a special 3-D camera (also developed by Cameron). Mix that with the promise of large-scale, hard science fiction that hasn’t been attempted much in the past few years, and you have a project that seems guaranteed to live up to the hype and expectations that are riding on it. The only question (and fear) is what is to become of the cinema geeks overwhelmed by the images that Cameron and his effects crew are putting in front of them. For those with weaker constitutions, we fear the worst.
