E-BOOK EXCERPT

Avatar is the most successful movie of all time, surpassing the record held by James Cameron's previous monster hit, Titanic. It is also the most expensive movie ever. With its adoption of modern 3D techniques, Avatar is arguably the most spectacular film of all time. Kevin Patrick Mahoney explores how Avatar has reached this pinnacle of success. The film has not been universally praised; some critics have pointed to an overly simple plot and dialogue. However, Kevin reveals that there are many complex themes that lie behind such apparent simplicity. This book begins with an in-depth review of events as they happen on screen, including the many scenes deleted from the film, and then proceeds to explore some of the most interesting themes in more depth. Kevin examines how James Cameron has adapted Joseph Campbell's theory of the Hero's Journey in Avatar. The Na'vi's planet, Pandora, is very paradisiacal, so this book discusses how it's related to the Biblical Garden of Eden. In addition to this, Kevin dissects Avatar's rather confused politics, the controversial depiction of the US Marine Corps, and the accusations of racism that have hurled at the film. Since Jake Sully is introduced to us in a wheelchair, Kevin examines the representation of disabled people in Avatar and other science fiction dramas. Some of Avatar's subtle depictions of sexuality seemed to be mainly directed at adolescent boys, so this book also dissects some of the more 'blue' aspects of the movie. Moreover, Kevin Patrick Mahoney reveals how Avatar relates to James Cameron's previous blockbuster movies.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

Literally and figuratively, Pandora is a long, long way from mother Earth. Its distance of 4.37 light years is so far that humans traveling there are put into cryosleep for the journey in a spacecraft so fast that it could reach the Earth's moon in two seconds. Located in the Alpha Centauri star system, Pandora is a moon that orbits the gas-giant planet Polyphemus. Its environment is beautiful and wild but often hostile to humans, who must wear an exopack to breathe safely in its carbon dioxide-rich atmosphere. As you make your way through James Cameron's Avatar Collector's Vault 3D, you will journey through stunning terrain that few human eyes have seen the world of the Na'vi, the 10-foot-tall blue-skinned humanoids who inhabit Pandora. They have a mystical connection to Pandora's natural world, which they believe to be nurtured by and inextricably bound with Eywa, the goddess of life they worship. Enjoy natural wonders like the floating Hallelujah Mountains and Pandora's natural bioluminescence. View the moon's amazing creatures, ranging from the gentle, spirit-powered woodsprite to fearsome predators such as the thanator and the great flying leonopteryx. This interactive "scrapbook" also contains 3D glasses to further enhance your viewing experience, plus 3D Pandora removable profiles. If you are inspired by the awesome beauty of Pandora, James Cameron's Avatar Collector's Vault 3D is for you!
