Avatar is a 3-D science-fiction epic film directed by James Cameron. It's Cameron's first fictional film since he directedTitanic in 1997. Avatar is the story of a wounded ex-marine, Jake Sully, thrust unwillingly into an effort to settle and exploit an exotic planet rich in bio-diversity. Jake finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth and the Na’vi, forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of an entire world. He eventually crosses over to lead the indigenous race in a battle for survival.
