[Update: We have a second clip from Avatar to share!]

MTV had a live webcast today for the upcoming release of Avatar featuring director James Cameron and stars Zoe Saldana, and Sam Worthington. The event had them answer some carefully selected questions and they aired a new exclusive clip, showing off what the film looks like before and after the post-production work.

To really appreciate the years of effort put into making Avatar the epic 3D spectacle it promises to be, you need to see the images below.

The following two images depict Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington rehearsing a scene of their characters – Saldana’s Na’Vi character Neytiri and Worthington’s character in his Avatar body – working on some relationship-building and archery training.

Can you spot the differences?

Thanks to Cinema Blend for the images. To see the exclusive clip from “Avatar Live,” head on over to MTV (only for U.S. Viewers).

We do have another clip though that went up today on MSN. It features the characters of Grace (Sigourney Weaver) and Parker (Giovanni Ribisi) basically narrating the plot and background of the movie and how what’s happening on the planet of Pandora is due to their desire for the badly-named resource “Unobtainium.” Not the best of scenes for me but worth a watch nonetheless:

UPDATE: Check out this second clip from Avatar (Click link for video):


The Banshee


If you missed it, check out the set of new stills we put up earlier today.

Are you impressed by Cameron’s Movie Magic?

Believe it or not, Avatar hits theaters two weeks from now on December 18, 2009.

  1. Is it just me or is Sigourney Weaver not very good in that clip?

  2. I’m blaming this scene on the screenplay – it’s overloaded with exposition being force-fed to the viewer.

  3. wow. definitely adds some insight. i figured the whole movie was basically shot in a green stage. very cool stuff.

  4. grr exposition is hollywood these days. Wouldn’t Grace already know why they are there. “This is why we’re here…” Could of been done in so many other ways. btw i am very excited to see Avatar. This is the only scene i didn’t like in the trailer, everything else has been super awesome for me.

  5. Big Blue Cat People. There is nothing more to say.

  6. @ Taylor,

    It pretty much was and one of the MTV clips from the event yesterday shows the work that went into one of the scenes where they land on the planet, with one of the Samson air-vehicles.

  7. looks like blue men group meets thunder cats! thunder thunder thunder cats! HOOOOOOOOOO!

  8. I’m really hoping that they work into the screenplay that in the movie they’re calling the element unobtanium as a joke and there’s really some other name for that mineral.


  9. Vic

    It’s actual name will be hardtogetanium.. LOL :)

  10. @ Rob

    “Can you spot the differences?”


  11. inordertogetitwemustkillallthenativesatanium?

  12. kickthenavibuttsanium?


    They could use this technique for Thundercats. Before Avatar, I didn’t see how they could make a live-action Thundercats but now they can.

    I don’t care to see anymore photos, trailers, exposition, whatever. I was sold on this film months ago, and will be there later this month.

  13. @ Kahless

    Meeee toooooo!! :)

  14. The game is terrible! The graphic look last gen!

    Still not sold on the film, I would have seen it just for Zoe Saldana, but shes a big blue cat person!

  15. @Vic

    My ears hurt the first time I heard unobtainium.
    Your hope that it is a joke is the only way
    to possibly salvage the grating term.
    I fear that it is not a joke.

    On the clip itself, the Parker character
    could not be more annoying and
    Sigorney is not much better.

  16. ya wow that scene was real bad I hope that is was a a scene they shot again bc thats not livin up to my james cameon movie skill allthough it might work better when we see the beginning of course.

  17. unobtanium is a word, describes either something that doesn’t exist or something that is extremely rare (like a very rare element on 1 planet in a billion).

  18. Geeze the scene wasn’t that bad… just pretty straightforward. I like Giovani Ribisi too I think hes a great actor.. (loved him in Saving Private Ryan) of course he’ll be playing the spineless corporate exec :(

  19. The game actually WAS good and the graphics were top notch, though nothing can beat Uncharted. Fun gameplay, there are more negative reviews from authors, and more positive reviews from consumers.
