Yes there is a movie thread, but think the film deserves its own thread.Was premiered in London last night, with a blue carpet and got a standing ovation.James Cameron had the story in mind 10 years ago, he was waiting for technology to catch up. Took 4 and half years to make.

In a far-distant future, the story’s protagonist, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), is a former U.S. Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. Jake is selected to participate in the Avatar program, which will enable him to walk. Jake travels to Pandora, a lush jungle-covered extraterrestrial moon filled with incredible life forms, some beautiful, many terrifying. Pandora is also home to the Na’vi, a sentient humanoid race, who are considered primitive, yet are more physically capable than humans. Standing three meters tall (approximately 10 feet), with tails and sparkling blue skin, the Na’vi live in harmony with their unspoiled world. As humans encroach deeper into Pandora's forests in search of valuable minerals, the Na’vi unleash their formidable warrior abilities to defend their threatened existence.Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment. Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars. On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake will be able to walk again. Sent deep into Pandora's jungles as a scout for the soldiers that will follow, Jake encounters many of Pandora's beauties and dangers. There he meets a young Na’vi female, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña).Over time, Jake integrates himself into the Na'vi clan, and begins to fall in love with Neytiri. As a result, Jake finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth and the Na’vi, forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of Pandora forever.
Def a iMax ting, seems like it will have to be a late night showing though, as almost all normal showing times are fully booked up.............................................................

Didn't pay this any notice until I saw the 'exclusive' 4 minute clip on Xbox Live, it looks fully cold. I heard the iMax is sold out for 2 weeks.

Saw the preview earlier this year,and it's a film that you should really see in 3D as it looks amazing.Best 3D i've ever seen and not in a cheesy things popping out the screen way,everything looks solid and real.

Nah this is definitely a big-screen, 3D occasion.

The Guardian reviewhttp://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2009/dec/11/avatar-james-cameron-film-reviewNot even surprised they gave it 2 out of 5.
Virtually every film ever is 2/5 or 3/5 according to Pulver

Seeing this tonight at IMAX,cannot f*ck*ng wait. The word is good, the 3D is absolutely sick ,people thinking of DL'ing it are seriously missing the point of what 3D brings to the movie.Just checked the BFI IMAX website and the rest of December and the pretty much the whole of January is sold out,don't think i've seen that happen there before. :blink: Crazy sh*t.
