Cameron says he's on cloud nine about the way the world has embraced Avatar. "It seems to be reaching people in every country in all kinds of different language groups. I guess because the film's so visual, and maybe the message means something to everybody everywhere," he says. "They have huge environmental problems in China, but they've totally embraced this film there."
In many ways, Cameron says Avatar is unlike any film he's ever made. "Normally, I can't watch my own movies because I know every detail of them. But I so love stuff like, say, the flying sequences because I didn't do the final photography. It was done by the visual effects guys," he says. "When I see those shots, I can marvel at them like everybody else does."
