The promotional campaign for James Cameron’s Avatar is headed for the golden shores of youth pop-culture – that’s right, I’m talking about MTV.

The channel that made Taylor Swift a national sweetheart and Kanye West the most hated man ever to swipe a microphone will next try to school the youth as to why it is imperative for them to grab a pair of 3D glasses and head to their nearest IMAX theater this December.

MTV will host two Avatar-centric events:

  1. A live webcast roundtable with the film’s director and stars, James Cameron, Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, with producer John Landau joining in the fun. Log on @ 3pm EST December 3rd if you want to catch it.
  2. A half-hour TV featurette including never-before-seen footage followed by a Q&A session where the cast and crew respond to fan-submitted questions. If you want to have your question answered on air, head on over to the Avatar Facebook Page to submit it. If you just want to see the new footage, then tune in on December 16th.

Two days after the TV special airs even more spoilers from the film, you can catch the full version of Avatar in theaters and IMAX on December 18th.

I never had any illusions about the MTV sector being in attendance for this film (the boys at least). Hopefully, they’ll be able to keep their voices down and their hormones in check for the whole two and a half hours the movie is playing. For the IMAX 3D ticket prices I’m going to be paying, THEY BETTER.

As stated, you can catch MTV’s Avatar webcast on December 3rd @ 3pm EST, the TV special on December 16th, and Avatar the movie will be in theaters on December 18th.

Be sure to keep checking back for even more promo materials. A new one seems to pop up every day…

  1. I prefer NVidia myself for graphics cards but that’s just me. For $715 start building my monster now Ken. Have it ready for Christmas!

    Look, we took another thread hostage!

  2. LOL M-Cat, $715? You’re breaking my balls man! lol.

    The thing about nVidia vs. ATI is you have to pick between raw speed (fps) or image quality. If you’re very picky about image quality, ATI is better. If you talk raw speed, for the most part nVidia is better, but it’s harder to claim that with the 4890. The ATI DX10 cards actually are DX10.1, while nVidias are just DX10. I forgot the exact difference, could check Tom’s Hardware when I get home, lol, but DX10.1 had some newer features that regular 10 didn’t support. But it’s pretty typical difference between their two mindsets. For ATI, they had to support the absolute latest while for nVidia they focused on squeezing out the most raw speed and decided as long as they can advertise DX10, then that’s “good enough.”

    I mean, honestly, most people, myself included, will probably not notice the difference in image quality between the two, but for me the deciding factor was the SLi vs. Crossfire comparison. Crossfire has 2 advantages over SLi. First, the amount of increased performance by cross firing two ATI cards is proportionally more than SLi-ing two nVidia cards. Meaning if you put two identical ATI cards in crossfire configuration, you’ll probably get somewhere between 50-65% increase in gaming performance compared to having just one. While if you SLi two identical nVidia cards, you will get maybe 20-50% increase compared to having just one. At least that’s what I’ve noticed from most benchmarks.

    Second advantage is that it’s more stable, SLi has been the cause of a lot of crashes reported to Microsoft, while Crossfire, not so much so…

    For right now though, nVidia has one advantage over ATI, and that is the ability for one nVidia card to act as a PhysX processor. But that advantage won’t last long, someone has already written drivers to allow for an ATI card to be used, and it works, but it’s not official yet, probably licensing issues, but it won’t be long before ATI makes their own.

    But before I got my 4890, I had an nVidia card that is still pretty good. But the 4890 went on sale and I couldn’t resist, lol.
