Since Avatar will be the #1 grossing movie of all time in the next few days, I thought I would do a product preview on the limitd edition Avatar Giclee. So, if James Cameron asks for a $300 million dollar budget on his next film, do you think he will get it now that he has the #1 and #2 movies of all time?
Check with Dan at the store to see if we are getting these in stock at firstname.lastname@example.org.

James Cameron takes us to a spectacular new world beyond our imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption, discovery and unexpected love as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilization. Conceived 14 years ago and over four years in the making, this epic action-adventure-fantasy breaks new ground in delivering a fully immersive, emotional story and reinvents the moviegoing experience.The visual scope of the aerial battle between RDA and the Na’vi was motivated by epic military campaigns of the 20th century. By seamlessly integrating the elements of familiar gunship warfare in an otherworld environment, illustrator Ryan Church achieved in this design the film’s standard of balance between reality and fantasy.

New Breakdown, New Additions, & Restock!
The Avatar juggernaut rolled on this weekend, as it left The Dark Knight in its wake to become the second-highest grossing movie in North America box office history, according to Fox’s estimates released on Sunday morning. Its $36 million haul is the biggest sixth weekend in history, and its still earning about $10 million a weekend than Titanic was a this stage of its run, so the all-time record is now assured.

Weta Collectibles announced that they are very proud and excited to be able to announce a range of limited edition collectibles from District 9, Neill Blomkamp’s acclaimed 2009 movie.
The collectibles are of course created by the same artists and craftspeople who created the original designs, props and creatures in the movie.
Further detailed announcements will follow shortly.
For you folks not familiar with Weta, there are two distinct arms to their company, Weta Workshop and Weta Digital. Below is a blurb from their web site.
Each business has its own website. This site is for fans, friends and artists, as well as clients of Weta Workshop. You can visit Weta Digital’s website here.
Weta Workshop is a five time Oscar winning conceptual design and physical manufacturing facility servicing the world’s entertainment and creative industries”
Well, that’s roughly how we sum up our company to our clients. And it’s correct. That’s what we do.
We’ve enjoyed a long and highly creative relationship with filmmaker and Weta co-owner Peter Jackson since the beginning of his career, working on films from Meet The Feebles through to The Lord Of The Rings trilogy (Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, Return Of The King) and King Kong.
The Weta Workshop team designed and crafted the armour, props, weapons and cultures for The Chronicles Of Narnia.
We built miniature ships for Master & Commander
We’ve built a fully functional Warthog for Microsoft’s Halo3 game promotional films
And much more – check out all the movies we’ve worked on.
But Weta is so much more than that…
Our artists created Dr Grordbort’s Rayguns. And a whole range of limited edition collectible sculptures, crafted by the very same artists who work on our movies.
We make award winning children’s TV shows.
We make public art and displays for events, exhibits and concerts
If it’s fun, creative and challenging, we’re into it!
And we love to engage with fans and other creative people…
That’s why our website is quite different from other companies in the filmmaking business. It includes a lot of stuff for you. The fan. The one who watches the movies. We’re all fans of something in here, be it movies, gaming, TV shows or beautiful art. So we hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
We took our grandson to Disneyland for the MLK holiday weekend. Friday was a very good day to go on rides and we only had to wait a few minutes for each ride. As usual, the Park was great.
We also went to the NFFC Disneyana Show and Sale on Sunday. I was a bit disappointed that none of the usual autograph signers were there such as Margaret Kerry as Tinkerbell. I had promised some folks at work that I would try to get them autographs and pictures, but had to settle for the already signed 8x10s available at the show.
I love the Disneyana shows but have to offer an observation. I am interested in seeing all of the vintage historical items from the inception of Disneyland through today. However, the show seems to be primarily populated by Disney pin vendors. I think the pins look cool and all that, but consider them personally to be the crack cocaine of Disneyland. I was bitten by the pin collecting bug a few years ago and it wasn’t until I saw how many pins I had that I realized I had to go cold turkey. I still like to look at them, but am very hesitant to buy them.
Typically the January show is smaller than the July show, so hopefully, we will see more vintage Disneyana in July along with some of our favorite guest signers.
Here are some pictures from our trip.

According to reports, Burton is looking to develop the movie as a type of live-action flick.
Storylines that could be explored in the film include why the witch hates the three fairies and what she has against Aurora’s parents.
