The Three Minutes Trailer of ‘Avatar’ Described
www.aceshowbiz.com: A brand new trailer of the highly anticipated “Avatar” which is screened in theaters this weekend has been leaked. While 20th Century Fox is quick to take down the bootleg version, AceShowbiz has got a peek at the trailer and can provide a written description on what the promo footage, which lasts more than three minutes, has to offer.
The trailer opens with a character telling Sam Worthington‘s Jake Sully, “I’d like to talk to you about a fresh start, a new world. You’d be making a difference.” Then, the footage cuts to aerial shot of Pandora and wheelchair-bound Jake making his first touch at the world populated by the Na’Vi. “I became a Marine for the hardship,” Jake’s voiceover is heard on the background. “I told myself I could pass any test a man can pass. All I ever wanted was a single thing worth fighting for.”

Ghost in the Shell to become a live-action movie
scifiwire.com: If you’re one of the people who saw the Wachowski brothers’ Matrix movies and thought, “Hey! They’re just ripping off Ghost in the Shell!”, have we got news for you: DreamWorks is developing a new, 3-D live-action version of the story, best known as the 1995 anime movie that was based on Masamune Shirow’s manga franchise.
Here’s how Variety reports it:
DreamWorks has tapped scribe Laeta Kalogridis [Shutter Island] to adapt the Japanese manga property “Ghost in the Shell.”DreamWorks is making the futuristic police thriller as a 3D live-action film.
Avi Arad, Ari Arad and Steven Paul of Seaside Entertainment are attached to produce and originally brought the project to DreamWorks.
The manga, first published in 1989, was one of the first cyberpunk-ish comic works that melded the concepts of cyborgs, police procedural and dystopian futuristic urban environments and influenced not only the Matrix movies but also lots of other sci-fi books, comics, films and video games.
