Yet Another Intriguing Behind-the-Scenes Avatar Photo
Now that we're into 2009, we're finally starting to see photos from Avatar. Maybe it was James Cameron's plan all along to start marketing the movie for an entire year? This new photo comes from an article in the New York Times about Hollywood's use of 3-D (my own response to that is forthcoming). The photo shows Cameron on the set of Avatar looking at some futuristic (and potentially alien) machinery with green screens surrounding him. To me, it looks like an advanced tanning bed, but obviously it's not. It's the third official Avatar photo in two weeks, which means we might see a real photo sometime soon.

Avatar is written and directed by revolutionary filmmaker James Cameron, of everything from Aliens to The Abyss to Terminator to Titanic previously. In the future, Jake (Worthington), a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na'vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture. Avatar will be presented in full 3D and arrive in theaters everywhere on December 18th, 2009.
