30 Oct – The full 3-minute trailer for Twentieth Century Fox sci-fi adventure "Avatar" is released today under heavy media coverage and is being seen as an attempt to go for a world record in viewership. Having attempted 'Avatar Day' back in August with a teaser trailer (simultaneous worldwide coverage), the James Cameron-directed epic is certainly building up a lot of hype prior to its 17 December 2009 release.
The movie stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez and Stephen Lang.
"Avatar" is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people.
"Avatar" will play in cinemas this 17 December 2009.
