Knowles has been promising a rip-roaring triple feature of new films at this year's BNAT, which takes place, for the 200 winners of his contest, at Austin's Alamo Drafthouse December 12-13. While The Lovely Bones opens December 11 in NY and LA, it makes sense for Fox to screen Avatar to the perfect demo for the costly sci-fi epic. (Neither the studio nor Knowles will confirm a BNAT unveiling.)
Here's Wired on how Avatar got made. Wired video plus interviews with Cameron on CNN and 60 Minutes are on the jump. On CNN, when asked to whom the movie will play, Cameron reveals his untenable position: "If all goes according to plan, eight to 80," he says. "We can't have a target audience. It's got to hit everybody."
