The first official picture from James Cameron‘s Avatar has premiered online and it is of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) next to a blue tank containing his avatar. From some reason this picture reminds me of The Abyss, another ambitious film directed by James Cameron. Avatar‘s synopsis: “In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na’vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.” From SlashFilm, “20th Century Fox will be holding a special preview of 15-minutes of Avatar on August 21st, in an event called Avatar Day.” Avatar will be released in theater on December 18, 2009.
