Hot or Not - James Cameron's Avatar

Happy almost Friday Ocean Dreamers!

This morning I was listening to Ryan Seacrest on the radio {my morning ritual} and he happened to be interviewing James Cameron about his new film that will be coming out on December 18.

Apparently it took him 4 years to film Avatar, a year an a half to come up with a language strictly made for the film with the correct syntax, and a new digital way of incorporating the computer graphics with real life actors.

Here's a little summary with pictures for you...

The story's protagonist, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), is a former Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. Jake is selected to participate in the Avatar program, which will enable him to walk. {hotness alert!!}

Jake travels to Pandora, a lush jungle-covered extraterrestrial moon filled with incredible life forms, some beautiful, many terrifying. Pandora is also home to the Navi, a sentient humanoid race that are more physically capable than humans, although considered primitive. Standing three meters tall, with tails and sparkling blue skin, the Navi live in harmony with their unspoiled world.

As humans encroach deeper into Pandora's forests in search of valuable minerals, the Navi unleash their formidable warrior abilities to defend their threatened existence. Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment. Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Navi hybrids known as Avatars.

The Avatars are living, breathing bodies that are controlled by a human "driver" through a technology that links the driver's mind to their Avatar body. On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake can be whole once again. Sent deep into Pandora's jungles as a scout for the soldiers that will follow, Jake encounters many of Pandora's beauties and dangers.

There he meets a young Navi female, Neytiri, whose beauty is only matched by her ferocity in battle.

Over time, Jake integrates himself into Neytiri's clan, and begins to fall in love with her.

As a result, Jake finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth, and the Navi, forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world.

So what do ya think? I know we haven't seen the film yet but from what you have seen and read...

Does this film look HOT or NOT?

I personally think this film looks HOT and I hope it does well in the theater. I think James Cameron always has made brilliant films that feature fantasy, action, romance, and more. Plus he is the man who came up with Titanic, love that film.

I'll let you know more when I see the film later this month! Have a great day!!


*movie summary from and pictures from!


  1. Definitely HOT! I saw Cameron being interviewed about this movie last week and can't wait for it to open. I rarely go to the movies any more (always wait for the DVD), but this begs to be seen on the big screen and I'll be there. I love new technology in film and this is like nothing before.

  2. Oh I think Hot! I want to see this. James Cameron is one of my favorite directors. I saw the trailer a while ago & omg can't wait to see it. I think it's in IMAX in some places too. Sounds fun too!!

  3. HOT! Can't wait to see this movie!!!

  4. I saw the ads to this movie a while back and it looks fantastic. I really can't wait for it.

  5. Oooh!
    Looks intriguing!
    Well I guess I'm not too old to say it looks HOT! Ha!
    You always post on the most unique things Ocean Dreamer...that's why I do love to pop over!

  6. It looks really interesting - I'll definitely catch it. This one will either be a hit, or a total failure. I'm hoping 'HOT!'. The technology is pretty incredible.

  7. hmmm im going w/ hot! although i can also sort of seeing it being a big bust =( ..hopefully not! haha.

    i responded to your comment on my blog - about the hooded scarf, but i'll just c/p it here too --

    i crocheted pretty much the whole thing (with the exception of the starting chain) using a double stitch. at the round sections up top i doubled up on the double stitches. so instead of doing one stitch on top of the one in the previous row, i did two. that way it forces a bit of a curve -the more you do the more circular it gets, if you only doubled up on say, every other stitch, you'd get more of a oval curve. does that make sense? email me -- if you want i can sketch it out or take more pics for you.

  8. ohhh this is a tough one!! if that is Michelle Rodriguez in that last photo then i think i'll probably have to skip it, her acting drives me nuts!!! but the overall movie does look interesting!! =)

  9. I'm intrigued! I've never heard of this movie, but it sounds interesting :). I'm excited for Sherlock Holmes, too.

  10. I think it looks hot! I mean, he's been working on it since titanic! and I've got to support anything with Aussie actors!

  11. it's probably good but i don't like scifi very much :)

  12. Oh I saw it's trailer the other day! I think i'll definitely check this movie out!! So yea, HOT!!

  13. I've seen the previews, it looks interesting. I might have to see that one.

  14. it sounds deep and complex and i'm sure there are some underlying tones to the i'm thinking hot. plus i love james cameron movies.

  15. This is right up my alley! I love fantasy and romance!! :) Can't wait! Their eyes look so beautiful to me!


Thanks for the comment love! Candy sends you and puppy hello (aka barky bark)!
