Dir. James Cameron. 2009, 162 mins.
Dolby Digital 3-D. With Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver. In Cameron’s state-of-the-art epic, a paraplegic marine is dispatched to the moon Pandora and sent in avatar form on a unique mission. In this enthralling, provocative story that questions and embraces the place of technology in the natural world, Cameron pushes the limits of filmmaking to create an awesome, immersive 3-D experience. Avatar is the all-time box office champion (although adjusted for inflation, Gone With the Wind is number one).
