Avatar Scenes Shown at Cinema Expo!

Michael here. I have confirmation that 3 full scenes from Avatar were shown at Fox's presentation today at Cinema Expo.

-This may be obvious, but Fox has confirmed they will not be releasing the clips online, as that "is not how one should be experiencing it."

-Jim tells me that Fox has given him official confirmation of the footage showing. Hopefully they will provide us with some more details soon!

-Multiple sources are saying that Cameron and all the lead actors were there. I'm hearing that Worthington, Weaver, Saldana and Lang were present.

-According to a friend of webmaster Alex Billington, Cameron told the crowd that "3D is here and here to stay."

-Alex: He kept teling me that it's "truly unlike anything you've ever seen." First public(ish) showing of Avatar footage seems to be amaazing.

-Follow Alex's Twitter updates here:

@UCSNord: "Avatar" footage at #cinexpo: CGI was photorealistic, characters look really real. Believe the hype, this movie will be massive!

Fox's product presentation at #cinexpo offered about 15-20 mins of "Avatar" footage in 3D, presented by Cameron & members of the cast.

@UCSNord: "Avatar" footage at #cinexpo was presented by Cameron, Weaver, Worthington, Saldana and Lang, who all attended the after-party.

@UCSNord: Footage from "Avatar" at #cinexpo was stunning, literally jawdropping. Amazing visuals unlike any before seen, with incredible detail.

@UCSNord: The screening room was packed, I'd say about 1500 to 2000, around there. Genuine excitement and an amazed crowd.

More news as I get it.
