After the jump is the just-released trailer for James Cameron’s Avatar (courtesy of TrailerAddict). The HD trailer was supposed to be available at Apple at 9 AM CST but, surprise, it didn’t work (link may be working now). This Frenchy MSN site has an HD trailer that works if the one below doesn’t suit you, your majesty. I’m still wondering just how badly mishandled the marketing for this movie is going to be. Remember how Fox dropped the ball on Avatar Day? Well it gets worse:
Fox called a do-over and sent out random emails today (some as early as 3am) scuttling the Monday confirmations and asking moviegoers to pick again. So, is the site fixed? Haha, no. The actual physical act of selecting a time went smoothly enough, and there even seemed to be additional showtimes added, but I was amused to find that a simple selection and click-thru produced a random, broken debug menu on the top part of Fox’s confirmation page. Guys, even the fake Avatar trailer had better production values than this whole endeavor. [movieline]
Oh, Fox, I love to hate you so. I’m going to rape you with kindness.
I may be going against the grain here, but I’ve got to be honest: these CGI characters look cheesy as hell.
