Avatar trailer!!

08.20.2009

The AVATAR teaser trailer is here! Scratch that.. It's supposed to be here but the proper links at Apple's trailer page aren't working. UPDATE - Apple has fixed the links and you can click on any of the screenshots below to watch the trailer in HD.

It's weird to comment on this trailer because usually when I see a trailer it's the first impression of that film, never before having seen any footage. But in this case, I've seen a good 16 minutes of the film in 3D. But this is actually pretty well cut together and features a good deal of footage that wasn't in the Comic-Con presentation. I'm sure it'll look much better in 3D and on a giant screen, which is where I hope to see it this weekend. What do YOU think? Strike back below and debate with your fellow schmoes!

Totally agree about it being over-hyped -

I'm still going to see it, of course, and I fully anticipate that it'll look badass in 3D IMAX, but this trailer (aside from looking like the film will have some cool sequences), kind of underwhelmed me.

I feel like all this "game changer" hype left me expecting so much and what I saw here, for the most part, didn't look all that different than, say, Zemeckis' "Beowulf." For example, the moment where Worthington's Avatar says, "this is great." To me, the mouth didn't even match up to the

The 2D trailer showed me a cool new world, but for now, presented in a way that didn't look like anything mind-blowing.

Well, it certainly looks epic, I'll give it that. I can't judge the story based on a mere teaser, but as far as effects go, I'm a little disappointed.

After all that "game changing" talk from Cameron, I was expecting something to rival Gollum. I didn't get it. All the mech suits and military stuff looks the best, but still too CGI-looking. And the Na'vi look downright cartoonish. I was hopeful, though, because I thought the shot of the one in the tube looked great. Then I watched the

And the Na'vi look downright cartoonish. I was hopeful, though, because I thought the shot of the one in the tube looked great. Then I watched the rest of the trailer.

Two ways this will be game changing. Either it's going to tank horribly, no one will try anything like this for a really long time, and Cameron will go back to documentaries. Or, it'll blow everyone away and Cameron will beat his own box office record. Based on the teaser, and all the hype and talk about how revolutionary this will be, I'd say it's swinging more in favor of the former. But who knows, maybe it'll look better when it comes out.

All that said, I did enjoy the trailer, and it's James Cameron so I'll definitely check it out. But I think if they hadn't hyped this up so much it'd be a lot more well-received.

Looks like Finding Nemo

I thought the CGI was supposed to look real or somethng. This looks as bad as the new Star Wars Movies. It's just a bunch of blue Jar Jar Binks running around. Stupid hype for nothing.

The Teaser

Let's, for the moment, take in the fact that this is a TEASER. Which means, this isn't a full trailer. Now that we've established that obvious fact. Unlike most "teasers" and "trailers" that spell out the entire film in a few seconds, I was absolutely satisfied with this teaser. Come to think of it, I sincerely hope James Cameron doesn't buckle from what might be a teaser backlash and end up revealing more in the follow up teasers and trailers for Avatar.

That said, it's James Cameron,

That said, it's James Cameron, which should be enough capital for anyone to be found sitting in a theater on opening day. I know I'll be there. This teaser not only met but exceeded my expectations in every regard. This is what sci-fi should be. Grand and epic ideas coming to life. All I've gotta say is... Thank the f***ing Gods that someone like Michael Bay isn't in charge of proceedings.

Peace.

That was incredible. Just stunningly beautiful. I really hope I can see this in theaters. I don't believe it's over-hyped because I didn't let myself get hyped. See how that works, kids?

It looks CG. From all the hype I thought it was going to be photorealistic. Agree with those who say it looks like a videogame. I'm sure the big-screen 3D experience will be fun, but... I wouldn't normally get excited about seeing cartoons in Imax.

Stunning!

Beautiful CGI rendering! The CGI will look different when you see it on a movie screen as opposed to a computer monitor. This is some of the most gorgeous CG animation I've ever seen. And yes, it will revolutionize motion pictures because nothing on this scale has ever been done before. Imagine everything you saw in the trailer but in true 3D.

How are we supposed to see how its going to revolutionise cinema with its unique 3D by watching on a computer screen in 2D? I'll wait until the cinema to pass judgement.

You have to understand that the reason some people are "hating" or dissapointed by it is because of what was said. We've been told the last 2-3 years that this will be the mother of all sci-fi movies and bring technology and special effects to the next level.

Fuck, Spielberg said this movie will do what sound did for silent pictures and color did for black and white.

So, after seeing that, you can see why some people were upset lol.

I really liked the teaser pic of Sam Worthington as the alien (not the Zoe one) that was used for the banners and also as the picture for the apple trailer page. Um how come the alien doesn't look like that?

My teaser review

i thought that the teaser was a great one. it told a story without any dialouge. i thought the REAL-D looked amazing. sure the flying dragons looked like your normal CGI creatures but they looked good especially in the scene where the humans and the Na'vi are fighting in mid-air. the Avatars in my opinion looked real. if you freeze frame the scenes with them in it i believe that they look real. probably not 100% but pretty close because of their movement and interaction with the enviroment. the

they don't really look very alien. they look like tall, skinny, humans, with make-up and blue skin.
the aliens from district 9, truly look alien/otherworldly

Trailer doesn't do it justice.

I was pretty underwhelmed by the trailer - but then I saw the proper 3D 15 mins on Avatar Day and WOW. You just can't advertise this thing in a conventional way on the internet with 2d trailers. You HAVE to see it in 3D in the cinema to do it justice. Which is going to be a wee bit of a problem for the marketing bods...

WoW Cinematic Trailer

Honestly this reminded me of the World of Warcraft cinematic trailer, as the character design is very close to the night elves. I will be seeing this movie but I just do not think it will live up to the hype. But I will reserve judgment until after I actually see it.

last I checked, the concepts and designs of the movie are still pretty clear in the 2d trailer, and that is what is being criticized. where exactly has anyone criticized the 3d fx? the movie looks like Star Wars, with cgi worlds, elastic cgi aliens, cgi technology. there's nothing in the trailer that makes the movie look even remotely interesting. oof, another movie about cgi aliens, I'm in. this looks like nothing more than a standard sci-fi movie except made in 3d.

Seen 17 min

Just came back from a showing of 17 min of avatar on the biggest 3D IMAX screen in the world here in Oslo, Norway. It was the best i have ever seen in 3D. It's like an over the top animation movie. Feels a bit like watching a video game. The avatars remind me of Doug Jones as Abe Sapien in Hellboy. The graphics are ground breaking, but im a bitt sceptical to the love story in the film!!!

only 4 more months, Can't wait!!!!!

I'll pay to see it

I'm sure Avatar will be a very good movie, possibly a great movie. This trailer was disappointing insofar as the hype machine has been turned up to 11 of late, and it was almost certain that it could not reach that high bar (which it didn't, IMHO).

Of course, a trailer is not a movie,and I'll be really curious to see how things fit together in the lager context of the story. I'm a wee bit leery as it sounds like another "evil advanced civilization overruns noble aboriginal population"

I'm a wee bit leery as it sounds like another "evil advanced civilization overruns noble aboriginal population" lecture. There is certainly a dramatic story there, but let's hope Mr. C. can introduce some nuance and not sledgehammer us with a trite morality tale.

I *think* he can do that. I'll be there with my money to check it out.

I am happy however that I haven't, that way I have no expectations and I'm not going be totally pissed if they screw it up (ahem..Transformers2) it looks great, and although everyone is not overly happy with the CGI, as long as they don't have the TRANSFORMERS 2 "move so damn fast you can't tell what's going on or who's who" CGI, I'll be a happy camper!

Haters already?

It looks fantastic... so why so much hate? It's not a remake, it's not Michael Bay and it's not a reimagining of a comic book the wrong way. It's a completely original cinematic adventure written and directed by the man who brought us some of the best science-fiction movies EVER MADE.

Not only that, but it's 90 seconds of footage! I can say that I am a bit disappointed after all of the "groundbreaking CGI and motion-capture effects" talk. It doesn't look as real as I would have imagined,

It doesn't look as real as I would have imagined, but it's also a teaser trailer from a movie in post-production. Everything else looks incredibly epic. I already saw such a wide range of emotion from CGI characters before I've even sat down and transported myself into their world through this movie. I can't wait!

Over Hyped?

I guess it's still a ways away so hopefully the cg will be better by then. If it's supposed to be better.

If this is what the big deal is all about then I think they failed. It's great CG but it's obviously cg. I think Final Fantasy the movie may have looked more real.

Still, I'm not counting it off. Just very underwhelmed by it all.

I didnt read any of the comments before watching this, so I went in with a fresh mind. Wow, some of those scenes look insane! Awesome SFX, however, the blue "people" themselves look too CGI'y in certain scenes. That might bug me a bit, but c'mon...it's James Cameron. And insane action. You know I'm there. I'd give the trailer a very high 8.

In Cameron we trust

I think if the hype had not been sooo huge just for this trailer, people would be flipping out about how cool it looks...but the over-hype (mostly Cameron's fault) for this trailer and the negative reactions I'm reading have me wondering, what the hell did you think it was going to look like?

Still not convinced

kdraines is right on the money about the misplaced hype. This looks pretty, sure, but I'm still not convinced- especially by the tag "From the director of Titanic". I only liked the Terminator films and Aliens. Wolfman looks hells-a-more interesting. :)

So much for the hype.

Yup, that's CGI all right. And saying it will look better in 3D is a cop-out (only bad movies are truly enhanced by 3D. It detracts from good movies).

Even though I've been a naysayer from the start, I admit to being a trifle disappointed.

Cameron is yet to dissapoint me but the creatures look like Star Wars CGI. It felt a bit Disney for me. The planet very similar to Chewie home in SW:ROTS.

I will say that I liked what I saw at Comic-Con better. I'm still not blown away but the 3D does add a different element.

the Avatars

look insanely real to me. i like the shot of his feet cuz it looked too real. the warfare between the humans and the Na'vi look absotlutely stunning. i can just imagine sitting in in front of the IMAX screen and watching all this. idk about you guys but to me, james cameron went to a different planet and shot Avatar.

You know what?

It'll be funny when Neill's film turns out to be better than Cameron's overall, and for ONE TENTH of the budget. It would actually bring D9 up to my top five sci-fi films ever.. Just for THAT. (Being able to do that would be groundbreaking in itself.)

IT SEEMS..

.. to me like alot of you were expecting the footage from this movie to look like something that would exist without comparison to anything ever done before. Could this be the reason for so many lukewarm reactions and dissappointments?

Personally I wasnt overwhelmed by the hype so far and this trailer is along the lines of what I expected to see. My expectations thus far have been met. I'm going to see the 16mins of footage at 6pm est today.

That trailer looks fantastic to me! The effects (which I'm sure aren't the completely finished effects) Look great to me! I Wasn't one who was too excited see this movie but now...holy s#*t! I haven't seen a movie that has completely blown me away since Dark Knight. If anyone can do it Cameron can. Hopefully it's lives up to the hype.

Back from IMAX screening in JAPAN!

I have to say that Im finding myself TRYING to like this movie more than I do so far. Even after the scenes I just saw at the IMAX Im not quiet sold yet. Dont get me wrong the effects are great and I like the story idea but Im honestly not finding anything really special from what Ive seen so far. Especiallly when you think about all of the amazing and crazy creature and world designs we have seen from the vast amount of video games and sci-fi movies in the past few years. It all seams done

Especiallly when you think about all of the amazing and crazy creature and world designs we have seen from the vast amount of video games and sci-fi movies in the past few years. It all seams done before. I want to feel like Im in another world and really relate to the characters. I just felt thrown into a few Jarassic park action scenes and thats about it. Im not giving up on this yet I think the movie could still be amazing when we finally get to see the full thing in December but we'll have to see. After all this is just a small teaser to get us excited!

What is up with people on here??? This looked sensational and everything that an important film should be.I was watching poetry at work in visual form.Maybe the CGI wasn't ground breaking but it's pretty damn good and i think everyone is missing the point of this teaser.This will primarily be 1st about emotion not just special effects.The cast can only take u so far so everyone needs to lighten up cause this made every summer film look pretty tame with just 1 line of dialogue only! GO CAMERON!!

while this trailer may not meet the infinitely high expectations we all must have for this film (by definition nothing can!) we must trust in Jim as he has always delivered the goods.

ps the trailer story wise looks epic, visually looks better then i honestly expected

Like i said, the aliens in District 9, being complete CGI, looks way WAY WAY better than these Navi people... if you don't agree then your just on Cameron's balls... I'm going to give it the benefit of doubt though, hopefully this will look better in 3-D or I-Max, and hopefully they polish the NAvi up a little

Respectfully disagree. I think most people, including myself, are upset by the effects more than the movie itself. While they do look stunning, what we've seen, I believe, isn't what most people had imagined. As I said in my post, I think a lot were expecting to see something to rival Gollum (a truly remarkable photo-realistic character), especially considering Cameron said that was what convinced him he could pull off Avatar, and what we've been shown isn't that. Though I am hoping it's

If they're bitching about the movie in general, then I agree with you, particularly because it's only a teaser and have very little to go on.

Jimmy C. has never let me down before, but I'm just not sure about this one. I also think the hype might be impossible to live up to. Don't get me wrong, the trailer looks pretty good. It just doesn't blow me away. I will, however, reserve judgment until I see the movie. Crossing my fingers.

Not sure why they've been treating this like holy grail of film making. The effects looked great in some scenes but looked like pixar presents an adult Fern Gully the next. I'm sure it'll be great, just not the groundbreaking blockbuster to end all blockbusters that the people behind it have made it up to be.

@ R.O.U.S.121

It just bothers me at how this generation of people cannot be slightly impressed whatsoever. You can show them anything and the first thing people have to say is a negative comment. People these days feel that the only thing interesting they have to say is something negative so thats what they go with.

It bothers me that people are completely writing off this flick based on a two minute trailer. But oh well like the old adage goes everybody is a critic.

I dunno, it's impressive, but only really looks like the next step up in CG from the new Star Wars films. Everyone brings up 'Delgo', but what about 'Battle For Terra'? As a buddy of mine put it, it's 'Aliens' meets 'Fern Gully'. Not that that's a bad thing, but the teaser just didn't get me pumped.

I love the fanboy mob mentality here thumbs downing everyone who isn't shitting their pants. I wonder if they have the balls to thumbs down the king.

Honestly, visually it looked good, NOT incredibly. The music sucked, didn't enjoy that. But...It doesn't seem that great to me, but this is only a teaser/

Saw the trailer 1080p and I'm impressed. While the characters look obviously fake they look convincing and not CG even though they are. I'll definitely be seeing more.

Looks good but ... i dunno

I will definately go see Avatar but to be honest i don't know whether it will live up to all the hype or for that matter make over what it has already spent in producing the film. Regardless of it looking quite visually stunning I think it will make a fair ammount but not enough to make a large profit.

The movie looks visually appealing. Will look sweet on blu-ray one day. Hopefully the story and all that will be good too. Lets face it, great special effects doesn't ensure a great movie. District 9 is the sci-fi movie to beat right now, and from what I know about Avatar's story, it doesn't sound as intriguing as D9's was.

i thought they were supposed to be alien-human hybrids.

i'm guessing you have to see this in Imax 3D to get the mind blowing parts. thus avatar day.

I think it'll look better in 3-D, but this trailer is vague enough to make me still anticipate a pretty outstanding something-or-other.

I will say that I liked what I saw at Comic-Con better. I'm still not blown away but the 3D does add a different element.

I'm disappointed.

Was hoping for something in the lines of "Aliens", bloody and violent, and instead got a PG-13 "Episode II, cgi-creatures with wars for children" vibe.
I really, really, REALLY hope to be wrong come December.

For a teaser, I think it works great. It's too early to determine how "groundbreaking" this is, but I'm looking forward to seeing the film in IMAX 3D.

Enough said. I'm sold. I wasnt quite sure what to expect but this trailer matches my vague interpretations of what I've read. It looks very James Cameron.

I've got passes to one of the screenings tomorrow as well. This is going to be very interesting.

This trailer does not impress me! Nothing ground breaking, IMO. The creatures still look very CG to me. Maybe the 3D will make it better but right now this is not living up to the hype. Not even close!!!

what a hack

I think that the effects look pretty silly...and the main reason for this is the way that Cameron has been building this film up. Dont say for ten years that this film will contain the most groundbreaking special effects ever put on film and then release footage like that. If Cameron wouldn't had said anything I think I would like the effects better. I have no respect for a director who is so full of himself as Cameron is. A movie should build up hype based on the actual movie...not a blowhard

I never even heard of that movie till the first trailer. That movie simply build up hype based on the fact that it was an amazing movie not because the director was bragging about it all the time.

I don't know what you guys are smokin' but that was awesome. It had a genuine epic action/sci-fi feel and is directed by a guy who knows what he's doing.

Yeah, the CGI looks like CGI but... that's because it is CGI. At least it looks like good quality CGI and not just generic, "scenery enhancement". Why would anyone be expecting photo realistic CGI on a movie that's been in production for quite some time? Every movie now has CGI. Avatar wasn't going to suddenly change CGI from, "Great"

Plus, beyond the CGI complaint there wasn't one negative thing about that trailer.

I'm sure the 3D experience and technology will be amazing and the only reason I will see it. It looks like a live action Ferngully and disappointing for a James Cameron Five year ordeal. But reworking the trailer might have its advantages but for now, it seems to childish.

I really hope the movie is more interesting than the preview (yes, I saw the 16-minute preview, it's just as underwhelming, IMHO). It's not bad, it just looks a little cliched. The whole "alien-as-aboriginal" is overused. At least District 9 didn't make the aliens speak English.

in that trailer impressed me. The blue things are absolutely awful, just awful. Not big on the cast of this movie either. When I'm most excited about the doufus from Dodgeball, you know something is wrong.
This looks like the elements of Matrix reloaded, elements of the new Star Wars trilogy, elements of Waterworld, and some stupid looking blue people.

The film looks great. CGI isn't flawless, but it all looks so damn beautiful I don't care.

Also, all the haters were going to hate no matter what. Remember when all these same haters said long ago "if the effects are not the greatest thing ever then I'll hate it.". That's the hater mentality for you.

all the haters only have themselves to blame for the overhype. JC only said that the technology for the motion capture was groundbreaking. He never once pushed "photoreal" at the public. That was just fanboys dreaming. And i dont care what you say, a few of those closeups of the Na'vi faces are pretty fucking incredible.

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within Flashbacks

I know I'm going to start a geek war with this but, I've seen this type of trailer for this type of movie before. It look like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, which is one of the worst movies i have ever seen. I know people out there like that hunk of crap but i hate it! its one of three movies in my life I've walked out of theaters on. And its the only moive I've ever demanded my money back from. I won't see this in theaters period.

It looks pretty don’t get me wrong, but I would rather

The movie looks spectacular. Epic. This trailer already has a better story than T4, Star Trek, & Transformers 2 combined; and this trailer only had one line of dialog.

The hype created by lame internet fan boys was too stupid for words. Haters fed on this hype to give them ammo.

It looks retarded and I don't see how it is ''great'' or ''groundbreaking'', looks like any other sci-fi with a big budget. The hype was misplaced from the start and I think only ''nerds'' hyped it because I don't think the expectations are for the movie to be the biggest thing ever.

How, exactly, does it look "retarded"? That's a very... ambiguous statement and not very precise or educational.

Cameron, himself, has been interviewing for the film during the last four years and been preparing us for it for the better part of the last decade. With such comments and films like Aliens and T 1&2 in his resume, it's not hard to see where the hype is steaming from.

It does look like beowolf. Nothing really great, the graphics in Halo 3 seemed better then this. I love how the hype for this movie has turned people into robots. Fox new all they had to do was keep this in secrecy and let the hype build. Then people with no spines would automatically love it without seeing anything, then when they saw bland run of the mill stuff they'd have no choice because of their previous convictions. Really it doesn't look that great. Sorry. And I watched that trailer
