The movie Avatar was released in the United States on December 18, 2009. The movie was written and directed by James Cameron. The film broke several box office records during its release and became the highest grossing film of all time worldwide, surpassing Titanic, which had held the records for the previous 12 years. It also became the first film to gross more than $2 billion. So unless you've been under a rock for the past 8 months, you've definitely seen or perhaps heard of this little movie. My husband and I have seen the movie twice, once in it's regular format and once in 3-D (which I have to say was amazing). My son has seen in numerous times with his friends and now has the DVD so he can watch it anytime he wants. The characters in this movie are incredible and Avatar costumes are perfect for Halloween! The two main characters, Corporal Jake Sully and Neytiri (of the Na'Vi clan) are fun to wear whether you're a child or adult. They make for a great couples costume if you're going to a Halloween party or for trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. Everyone will know what character your portraying...the blue in the costume sort of gives it away!
Good news for all you Avatar fans out there! First on August 27th, Avatar will be returning to the big screen in Digital 3D and IMAX 3D. For all you moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D, now you can! Furthermore, James Cameron stated that since the film was so successful, there will be at least two sequels to the film! That gives all us Avatar fans something to look forward to!
