Three months out from its official release, the trailer for James Cameron’s ‘extraordinary’ stereoscopic 3D feature film Avatar is wowing internet pundits.
The US$237 million film is Cameron’s first as director since the monster that was Titanic in 1997.
The film features cutting-edge 3D production and performance capture techniques including a new 3D camera system conceived by Cameron.
The production also marks the debut of Cameron’s ‘virtual camera’. The technology employs a handheld monitor that Cameron used to walk-through 3D scenes in real-time and record certain aspects as live-action sequences.
From the below trailer, do you believe the hype is justified? Let us know your thoughts.
