    Looks like an awesomer version of the Mech Suits they had in the Matrix films.

    Psh. I much as I love the TF brand, Cameron is a Sci-Fi god, and this movie will blow RotF out of the century in terms of a quality film-going experience. If only he could direct TF3....

    Oh Don't get me wrong, I loved ROTF, but my favorite movie this year (thus far) has been Trek, and this one stands to replace that. I agree about TF3, and that's because I still love what came before, but just like Cameron took Alien in a new direction, so I would love to see the same thing happen, but anyway, AVATAR!

    I agree. I am SO happy that Cameron is returning to Sci-fi feature films. I hope its an ongoing thing.

    It's cool looking but there isn't anything particularly striking about it.

    Interesting. Cockpit design sorta reminds me of the Evac Fighter from Aliens (but then again, found in general mechs).

    Anyways, so glad Cameron is back to sci-fi films and that he finally got out of his Titanic-addiction...

    I'd love to see Cameron direct a Mechwarrior movie.

    Looks kind of like old school mechs - which is a good thing. I'm really more interested in the coming Battle Angel movie, this looks cool though.

    Fuck yeah!

    The more I hear about this movie, the more awsome it gets. Its suppose to be about a marine who sort of possess an alien body, which then get's the power to control air and is the last of its kind, right?

    One of those is a joke.

    I am determined to hate this movie because of it bogarting the name "Avatar" when another movie clearly deserves it...but I fear I won't be able to hold out my hate for much longer.

    It kind of has a rough, durable look to it, like it could have stepped out of the Aliens universe. I like it.
