First Official Photo For James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’


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.

    Did you catch my GAF post? : D

    Awesome picture, by the way. I suspect a lot will hate it though.

    Why not give props to the folks you cut up the pictures from?
  • I actually found this and posted it before slashfilm, thank you very much :)

    That looks like someone shot Hugo Weaving's Elf character from LOTR and stuck him in a Bacta tank.
  • Apologies to the fanboys but this looks fucking bad to me. Not even "well, it could be cool", but just like a halfassed design that looks like the aliens in every movie ever made (besides Mars Attacks). All this dick swinging over how "advanced" the designs are seems as overblown as the dick swinging about how "evolutionary" the actual film will be.
  • 10 points for using 'dick swinging' twice in a single sentence. :P
