Friday August 21st is "Avatar Day," on which the public will have its first opportunity to see what all the fuss over James's Cameron's EPIC 3D sci-fi effort is all about. On "Avatar Day" the film's trailer will be released in all theatrical formats. Selected IMAX and digital 3D cinemas around the world will be screening, free of charge, a 16-minute preview of the film. All you need is the golden ticket, and signing up for them was supposed to be free and easy. Not so much says the interwebs.
So many fans logged on Monday to get the chance to see the fantastic blue aliens that 'Avatar's site went down for hours. Fans on Aint It Cool News were outraged. You know, the way they get when mom hasn't washed their Yoda underoos (even though they're 30). By the end of the day the site was like Star Wars' Death Star: Fully operational.
On behalf of Creative Loafing, the Rabid One and Kevin Hopp will both be in attendance on "Avatar Day" and will provide a full, geeky report.
