Today CNN has an interview with Avatar director James Cameron in which the HMFIC addresses the mostly negative reaction to his movie's trailer: "Honestly, it's a bit of a relief. If everybody was embracing the film before the fact, the film could never live up to that expectation … If everybody was just sort of praising it too much right now, that would make me even more nervous." We have some more good news for Cameron: IGN posted a brand-new Avatar clip today, and those blue things still look totally stupid to us. [CNN, IGN]
