New Trailer for Avatar

Remember a while back when I posted the first trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar? I was confused and underwhelmed. Well there’s a new trailer out, and it’s much longer and give much more insight into the plot. Take a look and we’ll discuss:

So, what have we learned? It’s about humans invading another planet to steal their natural resources. When the natives won’t just give us the resources we decide to destroy them all. Is this a sci-fi movie or a criticism of Bush-era foreign policy? Anyway, this trailer does show off the film’s special effects, and they are very good. But overall it just doesn’t do anything for me. What do y’all think?

    I think it looks pretty damn epic to me, but this kind of thing is right up my alley. And, at least from the trailer, it doesn’t look like it’s filled with “Hey! Hey look what we can do! OOOOoooooooo Special effects!” As Guillermo del Toro explained the effects in Pan’s Labyrinth “They are not eye candy, but eye protein.” Effects to suit the story rather than just there for the sake of it. Of course I could be wrong, but I’m definitely going to see this sucker in Imax. A cool Sci Fi story with a great cast helmed by James Cameron…I’m sold.
