Fans around the world will soon be able to discover every detail and relive every moment of James Cameron’s AVATAR in the comfort of their own home.

The SNL Digital Short, Laser Cats, was getting old. I loved the first two, especially the one with Lindsay Lohan. Since then they have gone to the well to many times. This weekends SNL stepped it up. Add in James Cameron, Ripley from Aliens, Terminator references, and the Titanic band that kept playing and you have comedy gold. I give you James Cameron’s Laser Cats 5!
I know I sound a bit skeptic, but apparently some early reviews for Avatar have appeared online, and they are good!
“The King of the World sets his sights on creating another world entirely in Avatar, and it’s very much a place worth visiting.” – Todd McCarthy, Variety
“The final battle scene is 20 minutes long and absolutely mind-blowing” – The Sun
“It’s a world, not to give too much away, that Cameron clearly fully intends to return to and further explore. When he does, our bags are already packed.” – Chris Hewitt (UK) Empire Magazine
“The screen is alive with more action and the soundtrack pops with more robust music than any dozen sci-fi shoot-’em-ups you care to mention.” – Kirk Honeycutt Hollywood Reporter
Right now it has 100% on RottenTomatoes.com. I expect that to go down as we get closer to the release. I want to give it a chance, but I just don’t see what is so great about what I have seen so far. What are your thoughts?

Sadly we didn’t make it to Comic Con this year, so we have no coverage. It seems this wasn’t the best year in terms of news or exclusives. However, I looked around the web and found some of the best highlights:
