Will Avatar be a new Star Wars?

There has been a lot of hype in tinseltown over the latest CGI laden epic from James Cameron.  Avatar is released on 18th December and it looks set to clean up over Christmas.  Like all Sci-fi the plot is pretty simple.  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.

Don’t got for the plot, just go for a film you will enjoy and re-live that first thrill you had when the Imperial Star Destroyer first chased Tantive IV across the Silver Screen.

Avatar stars Sam Worthington, who has made a career out of playing soldiers.  He also stars in the up-and-coming 20,000 Leagues under the sea.  Expect great things from this man.

Alongside him we have Sci-fi icon, Sigourney Weaver, still looking good at 60.  Other cast members include professional hard-girl Michelle Rodriguez, the new Ohura, Zoe Saldana and Giovanni Ribisi.  The last name was last seen brandishing a machine gun in Public Enemies.

So enjoy this film when it finally gets here.  Life just gets better.
