Worthington Poses for Senior Class Photo for ‘Avatar’

By  · Published on August 14th, 2009

I’ve shown my continual hatred toward the promotional campaign for Avatar because it’s, so far, been non-existent save for a few incredibly, mind-blowing, probably CGI images of James Cameron standing around. The reason I’ve been upset? Because the images are just too jaw-droppingly awesome for my mind to handle. James. Cameron. Standing. Around. Don’t even think about it or your eyeball might rupture.

And now the production has released an “official image” which is almost as exciting!

Thanks to /Film, we can all see for ourselves!

That’s right sports fans, it’s a shot of Sam Worthington taking a fancy prom portrait with his alien counterpart in the background. Oh, Class of 2009, it was a night to remember. I’m not sure I did the 2001: A Space Oddysey theme the planning committee picked out for prom, but it just might be crazy enough to work.

But seriously, this doesn’t even look like a shot from the movie, and Worthington is a fist resting on his chin away from a senior portrait. Kills me.

Your fans are still amped up for this film ‐ don’t lose momentum by continually giving them photographic blue balls. I get the feeling if these types of images continue to come out, people are going to be tired of this movie before it even comes out ‐ no matter how epic it is.

What do you think?
