It’s been 3 long years since James Cameron started working on Avatar but it seems the time has finally arrived for some footage to be revealed. Not in the form of a trailer to the masses (just yet), but at the CineExpo convention in Amsterdam. From THR:
Program highlights set for Tuesday include a Fox slate presentation that’s expected to feature extended clips from Jim Cameron’s “Avatar,” a 3-D scifi tentpole scheduled for release around the world in December. Fox also will screen its 3-D summer three-quel “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs,” and Sony will show its Katherine Heigl/Gerard Butler starrer “The Ugly Truth.”
TheArnoldFans.com have also learned that James Cameron and Sam Worthginton will be attending the San Diego Comic Con next month, which I suspect will be the place Cameron will reveal the first Avatar trailer.
It’s been reported that James Cameron and Sam Worthington will be making appearances at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego. Our friend Jacob tells us that the Avatar panel and Q&A will be on Thursday, July 23rd. TheArnoldFans.com will be attending and we hope to sit down with Cameron at the roundtable interviews.
If footage and trailers are going to be shown at conventions then there is a good chance that bootlegs will pop up. I hope 20th Century Fox release the trailer online so that our first look at Avatar will be in glorious 720p full screen HD rather than a crappy Youtube version. By this time next month we could have an Avatar trailer!
