Yes, it finally has arrived. Thanks to a random tip (edit: I’ve gotten many e-mails, I did not steal from /Film, I found this on my own at a private forum and posted it before /Film in fact), today we have the first official photo from James Cameron’s sci-fi/fantasy epic Avatar. The photo will be in Entertainment Weekly’s next issue. It features Sam Worthington and an unconscious avatar behind him. Check it out in hi-res after the jump.
