James Cameron's Avatar stills

Is This a Powersuit From James Cameron’s Avatar?

Posted on Monday, May 25th, 2009 by Brendon Connelly




Marketsaw, the number one Avatar obsessives to hold a blogspot account in all of this world, have posted an image of what to my eye appears to be a Powersuit from James Cameron’s upcoming epic. You can see part of the picture up above and the whole thing is below the break. Jim at Marketsaw was asking for somebody to comment and name the image, so I thought I’d oblige. What jolly japes.
Previously, Marketsaw received and published what ultimately turned out to be the very first confirmed image of the Na’vi, the alien species at the heart of the movie’s storyline. I think Marketsaw have got a really good track record with this film and as such, I trust the image is one hundred percent real.

Apparently, these 14-feet tall Powersuits are worn by human troopers on the surface of alien planet Pandora. One sequence is going to show a group of Powersuited troopers, led by Matt Gerald’s Corporal Lyle Waynefleet, laying waste to a Na’vi village, torching it with flamethrowers and even causing civilian casualties.

I’m utterly convinced that Avatar is going to deliver an incredible experience to audiences, even in 2D but particularly in 3d. And it should be a unique experience too, so if I were to compare certain elements of the film to Cameron’s own Aliens it definitely wouldn’t be to criticise it. You have to admit, though, these Powersuits are mighty reminiscent of the loader device Ripley used to take care of the queen in the airlock sequence.
Who knows when we’re going to see a trailer for this film? The rumours of an early teaser coming with Transformers 2 have been refuted, and seem to have originated in a simple misunderstanding over the Last Airbender teaser which will make its debut in that slot.

I believe hes stated he finished the story he needed to tell.

Although, he did sort of do another Terminator. He had a huge hand in making the T-3D ride at Universal Studios. Pretty cool show if you have never seen it.

Heres a few more tidbits about Avatar. and of course he got in some nice jabs at T3 and T4.

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/41244



Cameron never thought he’d shoot a new movie in 1.85 ratio, but he loves the way 3D looks in that ratio, so audiences seeing the film in 3D will get a 1.78 presentation versus audiences who see the film in scope (widescreen) in 2D.

- He seemed unusually humble and said that “Avatar” may not make film history, but there are a few shots in the film that he knows for certain will be quite memorable, saying that he has his crew just got something back from the lab that made them say, “what the ****?” (further fueling the “****ing our eyeballs” fire).

- He also said that the CG special effects aren’t necessarily revolutionary, but he believes that the way he’s shooting the film, with a camera that can give him and the actors instant feedback with a rendered image that loosely replicates what will be on screen in the final product, could very well change moviemaking. (He said the rendering looks like an “80’s video game” right now, but technology should advance to the point where it could look like the final product while they're filming on set.)

- When somebody asked about getting good performances out of the actors when they’re acting opposite a tennis ball, he said he didn’t see how it was any different than somebody auditioning for him in an office in Santa Monica, and that on his next film, whatever that may be, he should be able to create a rig where an actor could be interacting with a monitor that could provide a virtual acting partner (with a voice) – he said it was just too expensive for this one for too few scenes.

-When asked about the future of exhibition, he said it could be an “indefinite” period of time before 3D films won’t require glasses, but believed that stereoscopic 3D could be moving to TV screens and portable devices within the next five years and added that “since we spend our lives in front of screens at work and when we come home, don’t you think if there was an improvement for screens, people would want it?”

- He did take a non-Avatar question when someone asked about “having other people take over franchises that you created.” He got a huge laugh when he cut to the chase and said, “oh Terminator?” He then said that he basically traded the rights for Terminator for a directing career and then when Arnold Schwarzenegger wanted to do T3, his heart just wasn’t in it, though he had a few ideas. He said the producers “ran off with the rights, which caused some bad blood” and so when Arnold asked him after they were going in a different direction, Cameron told him, “just do me one thing – ask for more money than anyone ever has.” Arnold said, “reeeeealllly?” He said, “yes. Because what idiots would make a Terminator movie without you?” Which seemed like a direct jab at Terminator Salvation even though he was talking about T3. The audience roared accordingly.

-Somebody also asked about his reputation as a hardass on set and compared him with Michael Mann, to which Cameron jokingly replied, “What? Michael Mann’s a whacko.” (A crew member from two of his films stood up and defended him.)

- He also described his time since Titanic, mostly deep sea diving, seeing things “more amazing than anything in Hollywood since it was real.”

It ended with the moderator saying “I feel like we witnessed something historic,” which it surely did. And if you ever get to see either "Aliens" or "The Abyss" in 70MM, don't pass it up - it's ****ing amazing. If you’re able to use this, call me Marsellus Wallace.

James Cameron is basically my idol. If he had made money like Lucas there's no telling what he might've created.

I think it's fair to say that he would have made prequels that would not have sucked.
