After a 10-year absence from feature filmmaking, James Cameron returns with Avatar
, an epic science-fiction adventure in 3D, about an ex-Marine who, as an avatar, inhabits the mind of an alien lifeform indigenous to a distant planet whose natural resources are being pillaged by man. Weta Digital is creating a host of creatures and an entire alien world, abetted by artists at Industrial Light & Magic, Framestore, Hydraulx, Weta Workshop, and Legacy Effects. Roland Emmerich sets his destructive sights on 2012
, about a global cataclysm that brings about the end of the world. And, Cormac McCarthy's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Road
is brought to the screen in an uncompromising film by director John Hillcoat.
