The Trailer for James Cameron’s AVATAR

Before today, I knew nothing about James Cameron’s next film, Avatar, save that, based on the hype, I was supposed to love it with every fiber of my geeky being. The first trailer is out now however, and now that I have something concrete to pass judgement on, I’m not sure if I’m ready to declare it the Awesomest Thing Since AwesomeSauce. It certainly looks cool (as do these stills obtained by Ain’t It Cool News), but I’m not sure that this is anything more than a neat sci-fi flick. The technology may be fantastic, and it may make 3D moviegoing an honestly pleasurable experience, but the story is what it all comes down to. Is this thing going to be anything more than just spectacle. Right now, I can’t tell.

How about you?
