Comments

Ryan Tate : Would animals grow bigger and stronger if living in lower gravity planets?

Arianna Marie : I would loovvee for them to make a Avatar 2. Avatar is my all time favorite movie ever

Foxy The Fox : I want James Cameron to make another avatar

I8Zombie : I can't wait for avatar 2 and 3 coming out in 2017-2018

Lord trump : *We have begun to believe that we are our minds.* This falsehood puts our minds in control of us. Google truthcontest and become the master you are, not the servant.

ccricers : Why didn't they go over the spaceship? It was only shown for about a minute but I think it is the most realistic sci-fi element there. The fuel tanks, living quarters and engines are designed in a way that actually makes sense for a interstellar ship, as it has been very similar to concepts drawn by space agencies.

liamthespaceman : In the movie it was due to then Unubtanium creating a opposite magnet effect and hence, floating mountains

stera Perowski : Watch the full movie in my channel

Darish Sakeesing : lol 5.1 lightyears from planet eaerth and it is still affected by jupiter's gravity. Go into a science class kid!

ANGELA CECILIA Carhuamaca Avalos : ahi yop

Glowyrm : What does that even mean? I think you mean to say "fantasy", and not "supernatural". This video just got done explaining how it's all grounded in reality and science, so "supernatural" is very incorrect. And there ARE places like this in the universe, the odds are just way too good that there are to say something like that.

Leydi Laura Vigabriel : I LOVE THIS MOVIE, ALL THAT IS SHOWN IN THE MOVIE DOES NOT HAVE TO BE REAL, EXISTENT OR FAMILIAR TO THE KNOWLEDGE WE HAVE, IT IS A SCIENCE FICTION MOVIE, THEN THE MOVIE SHOULD MAKE US THINK THAT THEY DO EXIST AND ARE REAL. ♥

whæliin : solar system* not galaxy...

Ahmet Başaran : i felt like i havent watched the movie

MikeTheActorMan : Really? It's quite a big part of the film... that's why they move the little station up there so they can't be tracked, it's why they set the ambush there so the humans have to fire line-of-sight as their tracking doesn't work, etc...

MikeTheActorMan : I wasn't being hostile... but you were correcting that dude for his stupendous comment about Jupiter, and I was correcting you for your comment about it not even being in our Galaxy, which was equally crazy IMO... that is all :)

Ahmet Başaran : Jupiter pull the mountains but cant pull the pandora? Is this possible?

Ahmet Başaran : I missed that

MikeTheActorMan : Ah but they were... hence the "flux vortex" that messed up their instruments!

MikeTheActorMan : Are YOU even serious? It is in our Galaxy, there no way we'd get to another galaxy in the time period of the film... did you mean "it's not even close to our Solar System"?

Ahmet Başaran : Logical but we have to assume that the electronic devices of human technology in that day are not affected by such a big magnetic field.

MikeTheActorMan : It's magnets.... I'm pretty sure in the film they mention about magnetic field etc, and that's the reason they float....

Ahmet Başaran : Mountains contain some material having a negative gravitation. What about this?

Daniel : Then how can they fly there? If there's enough force to lift a mountain these small helicopters should have been pulled all the way space. No actual science in video - only creativity.

Mitchell New : The mountains float due to the gravitational pull of Jupiter and the magnetic field the surrounding area it creates, hence why their radars stopped working in that zone.

MikeTheActorMan : your theory is stupendously ridiculous then.

Odile J. : is there gonna be a sequel to avatar??!! why didn't i knew this before? :O

haraha : A lot of people thought the idea of floating mountains was ridiculous, but the producers and science wizards behind the movie provided a carefully crafted explanation. They explained that the mountains are laced with unobtainium which floats in the presence of a magnetic field. They also said that the magnetic field in that area is so powerful that it can support the mountains.

bluemime86 : my theory is that they are filled with helium, just like balloons

Rodrigo Patigo : BRASIL...

Deathbynature : So why do the mountains float?

pitiyagedon dinesh : nice

The3 Crownsking : This man did terminator, aliens and titanic! James you are so fucking amazing!

Julie Fey : No, the sequel are set to come in 2015....

Crystal Scepter : ur face is supernatural...

Xyan11 : 2013 and 2014 are the next movies

OMGcat : WOW

Dario Teplisky : Nemo

Krystle Champagne : This is one of my favorite movies so magical and truthful at the same times xxx

rasenganchato : guau esos efetos espesiales esta mui asovroso

Raul Pan : Did you know that AVATAR is a HINDI / SANSKRIT word for Reincarnation , usually used in terms of Hindu Gods ?

darkethan34 : @17thSHIT no watch the sex scene

Henrik Klevstuen : then why are you on this video?

Henrik Klevstuen : and maybe a fourth

Marcio Juliao : Pgvgg thnoj

Petr Stuchlý : That's because there are "doubled forelegs" so it HAS to move like if it had four legs, otherwise the legs would hit each other when walking. If it really WAS as biology-driven as Cameron says, they would actually space the legs evenly along the body, and the animals would wak with two legs on one side and one leg on the other side (and then the other way around) like insects do. We HAVE hexapods on our planet and we KNOW how they move, yet they made mammals with four forelegs... =_="

RoScFan : Cameron makes his sci-fi so realistic he needs to make a sci before he makes a fi? GREAT! that's my kind of sci-fi; with properly researched sci

hencca k : fuck that, I hate this shit supernatural films FUCK

Lum Pusi : i would like to see this film without all these efects :D
