Directed by James Cameron and produced by 20th Century Fox, ‘Avatar’ is an epic action adventure. The film was first conceived by Cameron 14 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not yet exist.
Starring Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver and Zoë Saldana, ‘Avatar’ is the story of a wounded ex-marine, thrust unwillingly into an effort to settle and exploit an exotic planet rich in bio-diversity, who eventually crosses over to lead the indigenous race in a battle for survival. Cameron again combines elements of massive spectacle and intimate character to tell a relatable and emotional tale.Avatar was released worldwide on Dec 18 in 2D as well as 3D. In India, the film is dubbed in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
