James Cameron's Avatar trailer online in HD
It's been crazy geek-out time for me as the trailer for James Cameron's huge film Avatar came online and in the process caused confusion and upset galore.
Firstly, come the time Apple promised to show the trailer, the page appeared, the links appeared, but every one was broken. However it wasn't long before it appeared elsewhere on the Internet and Apple lost their big exclusive.
The trailer's right here for you to see, and it's stunning. I even have some high definition links.
The Avatar trailer does look absolutely superb, while I've heard some say it's underwhelming and looks like bad CGI, I find it hard to understand what they mean, because the action looks relentless, the creature effects amazing, and I can only imagine what it would look like in this new 3D.
Of course for all that I heard that the 3D would be an effect much like lighting, used to compliment and build for the complete film rather than anything else, there's still a number of scenes of things leaping at the camera. Still, it's not as bad as a typical 3D film and it's surely not hogging the screen.
Let me stop the nattering, you should know what the film is about, all the stars, we've talked about it time and time again. Now it's time to watch Avatar right here.
While Apple are still continuing to mess up where the links are and how they work, some people have tracked down the working ones. Thanks to Atomic Popcorn, the high definition versions in 1080p HD and 720p HD can be linked to directly. Come on Apple!
Update: Here are some screen captures for you too.
