James Cameron to Headline 3DX keynote - Avatar footage may be shown

Hi everyone - Michael here. James Cameron will join Fox co-chair Jim Gianopulos and Dreamworks boss Jeffrey Katzenberg for the keynote address of the 3DX: 3D Film & Entertainment Technology Festival, which will be held in Singapore from November 19-23 and touts itself as the world's first fully 3-D based film festival.

Gianopulos tells Daily Variety that he expects to screen footage from either Ice Age 3, Avatar, or both, depending on what is ready to show, with the hope to speed the international transition to digital, which he calls, "slower than we'd like."

Certainly revealing Avatar would be the best way to pique the interest of the international exhibitors, as it will be the first 3-D film with mega-blockbuster potential. The timeframe also fits with Zoe Saldana's comment that we may see a teaser by December.

Keep an eye on the 3DX website for updates!
