Avatar is James Cameron’s first directorial effort since TITANIC. His last film TITANIC still holds the title for the highest grossing film of all time.
With a budget of Rs 1200 crores, James Cameron’s ‘AVATAR’ is the biggest film ever!
The Star Cast of the film includes Sam Worthington (Hart’s War, Rogue), Siqourney Weaver (Alien), Zoe Saldana (The Terminal)
The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist.
Now, after four years of actual production work, AVATAR delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film, disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story.
It is the story of a wounded ex-marine, thrust unwillingly into an effort to settle and exploit an exotic planet rich in bio-diversity, who eventually crosses over to lead the indigenous race in a battle for survival.
Cameron again combines elements of massive spectacle and intimate character to tell a relatable and emotional tale
The filming was majorly in Los Angeles and New Zealand
Avatar is a blend of live-action photography and new virtual photorealistic production techniques
The film is shot using the proprietary FUSION digital 3-D camera developed by Cameron and Vince Pace (Ghosts of the Abyss, Ocean Odyssey, Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over)
Visual effects are given by Oscar-winning visual effects house WETA Visual (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy)
20th Century Fox has tied up with Ubisoft® for the videogame ‘James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game’
Mattel will son be launching action figures for the film’s Avatar and alien Na’vi characters.
