Avatars special edition trailer is featured below.
The story of Avatar began in 1994 when Cameron wrote the 80 page script for the storyline. Filming should have began after Titanic was completed in 1997, but the technology Cameron needed to make the film sensational was not yet available. In early 2006, Cameron began to work on the film to have it completed and perfected by 2009 when it was released. Taking over $150 million to promote the movie, every dime was worth it. The amount of money Avatar made in theaters was more than Alice in Wonderland and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest combined. Avatar is sure to do amazing and hit record breaking numbers with its special edition release on Friday.
