Also, the last James Cameron movie I saw was Aliens of the Deep on IMAX 3D at the Science Museum, and it *reeked* of "HEY, I'VE GOT A 3D IMAX CAMERA!"

Since Cameron has always been a massive 3D / IMAX / whatever new camera tech cheerleader and all-round nerd, I have a nasty feeling Avatar is going to be a great big chunk of "HEY, I'VE GOT A 3D IMAX MOTION CAPTURE VIRTUAL CAMERA!"

Happy to be proved wrong, but am not going to shell out for an IMAX trip for Yet Another Tech Demo. :)
