"Avatar" director James Cameron says he and Paul Allen — co-founder of Seattle's Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum — "love to geek out together" about science fiction.
That friendship has led to something tangible for Seattle's sci-fi fans: "Avatar: The Exhibition," a collection of memorabilia from the 2009 blockbuster film, will be launched at the museum beginning June 4.
The exhibit will include some 40 to 50 artifacts from the film, such as costumes, props, concept models and sketches, said museum associate curator Brooks Peck.
Also included will be several interactive displays in which visitors can experiment with concepts explored by Cameron while making the film: performance capture, virtual cameras, sound design and the N…Read more >
Cool, check it out!
These are offical Avatar phone cases, they are not knock-offs!
They are really cool, I know there isn't much point in showing you guys these, and you probs don't care but I think you should enjoy the bright vivid colours....
Anyway, I would also like to ask you this; do you think the humans of the avatar universe use some sort of phones? And what you think about these avatar phones, and also do you think there would be documentaries about the Na'vi on earth?Read more >

Enjoy the trailer for Avatar special edition on Blu-ray and DVD.
Director James Cameron is preparing to dive to the deepest point of the oceans, it was revealed Sunday, as part of his research for a sequel to "Avatar," his 3D epic.
