As everyone sits waiting for the first official Avatar trailer to go online over at Apple.com, the French MSN has apparently beaten them to the punch. Although the trailer is in French, there really isn’t much dialogue anyway. So go ahead and marvel at the first footage released online from James Cameron’s first action film in 15 years!
The environments do look quite beautiful and I have to say, I’m intrigued by the idea of people stepping into these mind-controlled versions of themselves. That said, the CG does look like CG, and I think it’s going to be hard for a lot of people to accept that most of the action is essentially fully animated. I am still very curious to see how the 3-D aspect will play into the film, and how much extra detail will be visible on the big screen. I will be seeing the 25 minute IMAX preview tomorrow night, so I’ll report back on that sometime soon. In the meantime, check out the first Avatar trailer after the jump and let us know what you think!
Update: The Apple version is now online, so you can also watch it in HD here.
