Avatar VIDEO: Behind The Scenes Movie Footage

MSNBC has new behind-the-scenes footage of James Cameron on the set of his upcoming movie, Avatar. Avatar will be the first major blockbuster movie in 3-D, and was, in Cameron tradition, fantastically expensive to make. The final bill will add up to around two hundred and thirty million. Avatar will be released on December 18th -- in the meantime watch the sneak peak video below and check out the New Yorker's excellent profile of Cameron and Avatar ("Man Of Extremes")
