A behind-the-scenes image from James Cameron’s upcoming sci-fi film Avatar has been released. And no it’s not of some key scene or revelation of any of the CG elements promised by Cameron. But simply a picture of him and cast member Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation), pointing at something presumably fascinating off-picture.

Check it out below:

Nice headset, James…

I think it’s safe to say that Avatar is high on a lot of movie fans’ most anticipated list. Who could resist the return of the man who brought us the spectacle that was Titanic, the biggest money making movie of all time? Whatever you think of that movie, what can’t be denied is the impact it had; the task Cameron had of making that film was monumental at the time.

But who wants to follow that kind of success? Fox has granted Cameron a whopping $195 million budget to make this movie so I think it’s safe to say he’s intent on giving it a fair shot (to say the least). We’ll have to wait and see if the movie itself turns out to be even half as good as the hype for it has been so far; for now we have this amazing picture (note sarcasm) to ponder.

Avatar opens on December 18th 2009.
