Fox to Present its Future Movies at Cinema Expo - Will "Avatar" Have a Presence?

Michael here.  If you will be attending Cinema Expo International, which runs from June 22-25 in Amsterdam, we'd love to hear from you!


Fox has a presentation that could possibly include some new glimpses of Avatar.  Now, I have NOT confirmed that Avatar will be included as part of the presentation, but look at the description of Fox's event and judge for yourself:

Tuesday, 23 June


Please note for the 20th Century Fox International Screening & Product Presentation, no mobile

phones or electronic devices of any kind will be allowed in the RAI Auditorium. All electronics must be

checked in the cloakroom on the lower level. No exceptions will be made.

17.00 Screening

20th Century Fox International’s

“Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs” in 3D

Presented in Dolby 3D

(RAI Auditorium)

18.45 Refreshment Break

(Auditorium Lounge & Terrace)

19.30 An Exclusive Look at 20th Century Fox International’s Lineup for 2009 and Beyond

Paul Hanneman, Co-President, 20th Century Fox International

Tomas Jegeus, Co-President, 20th Century Fox International

Please note: This is a ticketed presentation. You will need to show the 20th Century

Fox ticket given to you at registration to gain admittance to this event. Your

Passport will not be admissible in place of a ticket.

(RAI Auditorium)


The high level of security of the Fox presentation along with the potentially huge box office of Avatar in international markets would logically suggest that something from Avatar could be shown.  If not, it would certainly be the elephant in the room.

So, what movies could they be showcasing from "2009 and beyond?" Probably not Ice Age 3, which would have just had its screening and would be opening in a matter of days.  This show is about getting international exhibitors excited about future titles, and Avatar is the only future big budget Fox release with the potential to make gazillions in international markets that would also have footage available to show (The A-Team and Voyage of the Dawn Treader have not started shooting).  Jennifer's Body, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Alvin and the Chipmunks 2 are possibilities, but it would be strange to have an "Exclusive Look" that does not include Fox's biggest movie in years.

Also on Tuesday, Disney will be exhibiting what sounds like concept art and other "inspiration" behind Alice in Wonderland:

11.30-16.30 Cinema Expo Trade Show and Luncheon on the Trade Show Floor

(Note: Lunch will be served from 13.00 – 14.30)

All guests are reminded not to miss the exclusive opportunity to step down the rabbit hole, in hall

11, as Disney invites you to experience the artistry and inspiration behind one of 2010’s most

anticipated releases in the ALICE IN WONDERLAND Touring Exhibition

Please note that cameras and recording of any kind are strictly prohibited.


On Wednesday, Disney will be showing off its future 3D projects:

Please note for the Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International Screening & Product

Presentation, no mobile phones or electronic devices of any kind will be allowed in the RAI Auditorium.

All electronics must be checked in the cloakroom on the lower level. No exceptions will be made.

16.30 Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International Invites You to a Presentation of

Upcoming 3D Projects….and More!

Anthony Marcoly, President, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International

(this presentation will showcase the masterImage 3D cinema system)

(RAI Auditorium)


It looks like a lot of interesting stuff will be happening at the show.  Do you think Fox will show off Avatar at Cinema Expo International?
