Unofficial AVATAR trailer is officially awesome

avetar

I've been holding out on you kids. I didn't quite know how I was going to post about the latest You Tube sensation, but after watching it an upwards of ten times, I think I'm ready.

By now, you probably know what you're about to see. If you don't, the AVETAR screenshot should tip you off. I imagine James Cameron spent most of last night watching this faux trailer, and screaming to myself, "WHY COULD THIS NOT BE?" and staring balefully at his set of as-yet-unreleased Na'vi tie-in dolls (sorry, action figures), wondering where it all went so wrong and why he didn't just do this thing in hand-drawn animation. Would tickets for fifteen minutes of that have crashed its own website? We'll never know, but at least we have this.

For all the hype we've seen regarding AVATAR, it's nice to have something silly out there, and the last fifteen seconds are absolutely brilliant.

Check out the awesomeness after the jump!

About Kate Erbland

At age five, Kate was famous in her first grade class for having seen DIRTY DANCING twelve times (a distinction which was only overshadowed by her other infamous trait of constantly running around with her skirt over her head). While her tastes have turned considerably more refined in the intervening twenty years, Kate still carries a serious torch for dance movies (and for skirt-head). She’s seen every James Bond movie in theaters since 1985 (A VIEW TO A KILL), has never walked out of or passed out during a film (CLOVERFIELD), truly believes movie theater popcorn should be its very own food group, and once told David Gordon Green, “you’re my very favorite director in the whole wide world.” Kate came to Los Angeles for the weather and a writing program at Loyola Marymount University that allowed her to spend weeks on the road, pretending to be Kerouac while drinking a lot of cheap wine. She has stayed in Los Angeles because she can’t imagine living anywhere that doesn’t allow her to tell people, “Tara Reid and I go to the same grocery store.” In her free time, Kate enjoys talking about all things important to various species of the living (including, but not limited to, people, hairless cats, and police ponies), the local Los Angeles music scene, hiking, and telling people to see more movies and read more books.

    hahaha… Now that's funny.

    James Cameron would roll over in his grave if he saw that!

    er… not that I'm implying Mr. Cameron is actually Hollywood's favorite imaginary friend that takes the guise of the late, great James Cameron, but um… it's true. In the late 90s, JC's skills with CG just went -that- far, and once he destroyed the Uncanny Valley, the current imaginary CG Cameron we've come to know and love was born.

    Look it up. It's true. It's on the Wiki.
