Is this out yet? My 5 year old and I have been seeing the trailors and it looks really good. He's into Sci-fi but I'm not sure about the PG-13 rating. I'll probably see if first myself.

I watched a show on the making of this movie....very cool stuff. The creatures in it, although computer generated are actually actors. They performed with an array of sensors attached to them....including dozens that monitored facial expressions. They showed movie scenes next to the acors as they performed and every little facial movement is registered...very cool stuff.

Exclamation Facial Recognition Software

facial recognition software and BIO scans
have come a long long way.... and are needed to stop terrorism

but my point is....

ya know that movie with TOM Cruise where they bust people for future events that haven't yet happened....

he's walking thru the MALL and the walls already know who he is
and are making him offers based upon his personal preferences....

that is our future....and within our lifetime,,,,talk about future shock.............
and being spammed to death,,,, this movie easily confirms this
and will be voted movie of the year i'm absolutely sure.

it'll do 500 million the first day.

You want to wager a plug on that one

This is going to be a huge opening....and the effects look spectacular if you ask me.

it's a combination of new technology and special effects

use to be....they'd glow ball ya to check your back swing on a golf shot... or set up a video game with the technolgy

now they have advanced to facial features and there's one hundred
muscles in the face that create expression....

read the book "body language"...it's pretty cool...

i can tell what people are thinkin with astute observation because once you know the signals.... they give it away.

My OLD friend LU (gone now sadly)
would often say to me :
WILL YOU ! STOP DOING THAT!

because i'd answer his question the moment he thought THEM

and after doing it three times in a row he'd catch up to me
and realize he never asked any of them and THEN get ALL weirded out
and be lookin at me like the cheshire cat hah hA
SAYIN -> YOU BASTARD!

So whats the wager? Define huge?? I see no promotion for this movie going on to speak of.......I think it looks like a big budget, big profit hopeful that spun out of control cost wise and the Studio will be lucky to turn a profit. It just looks like a pile of celluloid crap to me!

Can you say..."Ishtar"?

Check out the Competition....

These are the "Other" movies opening the same weekend as Avatar.


Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant are a Manhattan couple who are sent to hide in small-town Wyoming after they witness a murder.

Nine
(Limited) A film director reaches a creative and personal crisis of epic proportions while balancing the numerous women in his life.

The Young Victoria
(Limited) Emily Blunt stars in the story of the early years of Queen Victoria's rule and her legendary romance with Prince Albert.

Its almost like Hollywood is Conceding this weekend

Everybody got their tickets? I just bought 4 for the whole family! Can't wait to see this! Did anyone catch the new commercial for LG phones? It was a projector phone and the guy showed a short clip of the movie! Sick!

Me and a bunch of guys are planning on going. I think this movie is going to be as big as TDF says. I just tried to buy tickets for the weekend at IMAX Natick and all sold out for the weekend.

Comcast OnDemand has a 10-15 min clip about the making of the movie, the new technology will be a driver to get people there. Personally I have no clue what the story line is about.

Given the diversity of the human species, there is no “normal” human genome sequence. We are all mutants.

I dunno, I think Dad is right, personally...

My nieces and nephews are coming for a visit this weekend and they want to see Avatar with me since they know I'm a big sci-fi fan - to tell ya the truth I'm really looking forward to it

I did see a special on the making of the movie and I was impressed with what Cameron has done

This flick is gonna have legs - IMNSHO, I think it's gonna be a classic along the lines of the Star Wars series

"There is no royal road to this heavy surf-fishing. With all the appliances for comfort experience can suggest, there is a certain amount of hard work to be done and exposure to be bourne as a part of the price of success." From "Striped Bass," Scribner's Magazine, 1881.
