New Avatar Quaritch Featurette
The Colonel explains his mission

23 November 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: You Tube

Another day, another tiny taste of what we can expect from James Cameron's Avatar, with a featurette focusing on Stephen Lang and his character Colonel Miles Quaritch, the sinister head of the Marines based on Pandora to protect the human base there.

Quaritch, as had already been hinted and is confirmed by this footage, is a bit of a badass, and is rather lacking when it comes to environmentalist credentials. Instead, he is firmly committed to his mission of stripmining Pandora for its precious mineral, unobtanium.

Avatar is out on December 17 here in the UK.

Actually, I am a nay-sayer...
Still looks a like Cameron's got a bad attack of the Emperor's New Clothes. He could've made this in 4D and it still wouldn't look that interesting. Ironically: I really do I hope I'm wrong. More

I'll be waiting for the bit where Stephen Lang tries to run through a wall. More

I'm not one of the nay-sayers
but please tell me the mineral is not ACTUALLY called unobtanium More

Love that bloody music.
Some of the glimpses of the movie in this tiny feature are actually more exciting and EPIC than the ones seen in either of the full trailers. Booked my tickets yesterday for Cardiff's new fake Imax/Odeon screen, really looking forward to it now but I'm also going to stop watching things like this as they're giving away too much. More
