Avatar Early Reviews: Geni is Out of the Bottle

Avatar Early Reviews: Geni is Out of the Bottle

While Fox tried to cap the reviews on Avatar with an embargo, London’s Guardian reviewed from the premiere (where MTV’s Josh Horowitz tweeted the red carpet) and The Hollywood Reporter posted an early review, then Variety. (The rest will follow: the Avatar embargo has been lifted by Fox.) Tweets have been ongoing since the screenings began on the East Coast. On my Twitterfeed at least, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Holding the embargo on this one was a fantasy.

Slashfilm collects reactions. So does Film Junk. The new Carpetbagger weighs in. And John Anderson interviews Cameron for the NYT.

On Friday, check out my in-depth feature on James Cameron and Avatar‘s VFX, on Popularmechanics.com.

Meanwhile, it makes perfect sense that Cameron would want to remake Fantastic Voyage with a script by Shane Salerno. Water. Sci-fi. Jaw-dropping VFX. 3-D. Enough said.
