Avatar Performance Comparisons in a New Video Featurette

If you're still hesitant about Avatar or just want to see a cool behind-the-scenes video, then you need to watch this. I'm not sure how I originally missed it, but thanks to Brian (@fuelbot on Twitter) I've decided to feature it. Hulu is hosting a behind-the-scenes Avatar video that in the middle features some side-by-side comparison shots between the final rendered look of Neytiri and actress Zoe Saldana acting out her scenes on the sound stage. I'm trying to limit how much footage I see of Avatar at this point, but I still suggest checking this out, as you will be impressed with how perfectly her emotions were captured. Take a look!
Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine on the planet Pandora who, as an Avatar - a human mind in an alien body - finds himself in a desperate fight for his survival and that of the indigenous beings called Na'vi.
Avatar is both written and directed by Oscar winning visionary filmmaker James Cameron, of Piranha II, The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies, and Titanic previously. He has been developing the technology to make this movie for the last 10 years. 20th Century Fox is bringing James Cameron's Avatar to both IMAX and regular theaters in 3D around the world on December 18th.
