A RELUCTANT hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home in the spectacular and eagerly anticipated AVATAR (12A).

James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of Titanic, first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realise his vision did not yet exist.

Now, after four years of production, he takes us into an alien world through the eyes of Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair.

Despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years away to the human outpost on Pandora, where corporations are mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis.

His consciousness is linked to a remotely-controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air.

And reborn in his avatar form, Jake can walk again.
