    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 8 - James Cameron, the director whose "Titanic- set a record for ticket sales around the world, will join 20th Century Fox in tackling a similarly ambitious and costly film, "Avatar,- which will test new technologies on a scale unseen before in Hollywood, the studio and the filmmaker said on Monday.

                  M. Night's film is a live-action adaptation of a Nickelodeon cartoon series. The only similarities either project has is the word "Avatar" in the title.

                    You mean Cameron's finally getting off his lazy ass and doing something?

                      ...pure CGI or mostly CGI flicks don't have a good history and sci-fi isn't so hot right now.
                      Basically he created an entire world down to the stripes, spots, fins, scales, on every single animal, and everything had a perfect purpose. And that was just a treatment. It was incredible.

                      I know what you're saying about CGI, but James Cameron always makes it look seamless. I've never watched one of his movies and noticed anything but the story. I can't wait for this.

                        And, yes, I know it's Cameron we're talking about.
                        Well I remember reading the same thing about Titanic back in 97 and look how that turned out.

                        As Cameron himself says "if you are not pushing the envelope then what is the point?" and I have no doubt he knows what he is doing on this one.

                        I think he has thought long and hard about how to take the next step after Titanic and now he is ready. Should be interesting to say the least.

                          I would have thought after Titanic, he'd be more into serious movies.
                          This sounds pretty darn serious if you ask me...

                            So what's the general premise behind this movie? I know nothing about it except that it's already hyped through the roof.

                              It will be in limited release? It's my understanding not every domestic overseas theatre is 3D ready...
