Avatar DVD Screener Leaks, Pointlessly

Boom! A DVD screener copy of Avatar, history's money-earningest movie, has been uploaded to the Internet by some awful person, not that it will make any difference at the box office. How does James Camerson's 3-D, Imax-size space adventure look in just two dimensions and 480 measly lines of resolution? Pretty awful, as you might expect (see photo). We can't imagine anyone actually enjoying Avatar in such crude form, so it's probably not worth your bandwidth. We do wonder how many Oscar voters saw the film on one of these crappy standard-def screeners, though, instead of seeing it in theaters, as the HMFIC intended. Also, it's a good thing the movie's already made $2 billion, since we're definitely not buying it on DVD.
