James Cameron Avatar Movie Hits Comic-Con With First Look

Writer/director/producer James Cameron was on hand at Comic-Con for the first public showing of footage from his sci-fi epic Avatar, his first full-on feature film since Titanic. He closed his introduction with two questions: "How many of you have ever wanted to go to another planet?" The 6,500-strong crowd in Hall H of San Diego's Convention Center roared. "Are you ready to go to Pandora?" Another, even louder roar.

The cheers were merited. Cameron showed nearly half an hour's worth of scenes from the movie in eye-popping 3-D, including some of the most impressive CGI ever seen on screen. Avatar, which Cameron says was "14 years in the dreaming and four years in the making," opens December 18. Cameron announced that August 21 will be "Avatar Day," when IMAX and 3-D digital theaters will be showing 15 minutes of it for free.
