SYNOPSIS: Avatar is set during the 22nd century on a small moon called Pandora, which orbits a gas giant, and is inhabited by the tribal Na'vi, ten foot blue humanoids that are peaceful unless attacked. Humans cannot breathe Pandoran air, so they genetically engineer human/Na'vi hybrids known as Avatars that can be controlled via a mental link. A paralyzed Marine named Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) volunteers to exist as an Avatar on Pandora, falling in love with a Na'vi princess and becoming caught up in the conflict between her people and the human military that is consuming their world.

OK I admit this post has absolutely nothing to do with urban fantasy. Avatar created by James Cameron is a movie that has been on my most anticipated scifi film list since it was first announced. The trailer hit the streets today. No YouTube version yet. Yes there is a tremendous amount of CG but it looks like there is also an alien romance story in there too. Enjoy.
