Avatar's Special Screening

Audiences were given their first extended taste on Friday night of Avatar, the 3-D film that Titantic and Terminator 2 director James Cameron has been working on for 14 years. Showing at IMAX theaters throughout the world, fans were shown a little more than 15 minutes, and The New York Times reports “the fans were receptive, if not quite blown away.” Tickets to the screenings were available online, and more than 100,000 people were expected to attend.
