Fanboy Fix: 'Avatar', 'Iron Man 2' and 'Inception'

After the online ridiculousness that followed last week's Avatar trailer premiere, and the circus of information born out of Avatar Day, the film's star, Sam Worthington, sat down with some journalists on the London set of Clash of the Titans to defend the trailer, the film and director James Cameron's vision. On the trailer, Worthington says, ""Man, it's got a hell of a lot of hype to it. I read all what was said yesterday about the trailer and I can see their point. As I said, it's not meant to be [seen] on an Apple Mac. It's built for IMAX. It's built for 3D.

He continues … "That's what [James Cameron] designed it for. He's designed it to bring people back to the cinema. It's interesting that he's released that trailer, that Jim's gone and done that, and then the next day shows it in IMAX. One extreme to the other. We get the criticism and then we get the rave reviews of what it looks like in its own formula. That's obviously going to get people to think and go, "Damn right! I'm going to go and see this at the cinema!" Jim has always said to me he wants to bring people back to the movies, and he's a smart enough man for that to be tactical." Check out more from Worthington over on Cinematical.
 
Is This Whiplash from 'Iron Man 2'?
 
Granted, this news is probably a week or so old, but I didn't tell you about it when it first hit, which means it's Fandango Fresh! Marvel.com recently revealed an image of the Iron Man villain Whiplash in anticipation of a new comic series that will debut on stands this November. The series will re-introduce the villain to the world prior to the big-screen release of Iron Man 2 – and with that comic comes a pretty kick-asstastic piece of art detailing the new, updated Whiplash.
 
Now, whether or not this is what the movie version of Whiplash will look like we do not know. All we have to go on so far is a photo of Mickey Rourke from what we assume in very early on in the film when the character is first introduced – and so his costume still isn't complete. Needless to say, I'd wager that this finished product isn't too far off from what we'll see up on the screen come May 7.
 
'Inception' Plot Leaks Online
 
The coolest thing about that teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan's Inception was that it arrived without any of us really knowing what the film was about. And there's something to be said for that mystery – that not knowing the basic plot for a big summer movie too far ahead of time, leaving more to the imagination – intensifying the anticipation.
 
Well, the cat is now out of the bag (somewhat), as InContention kinda went and spoiled a good portion of the plot. Here's a logline-ish taste that doesn't spoil anything for ya:
 
"Inception takes place in a world where we have developed a means by which we can enter people's dreams. Leonardo DiCaprio's character Jacob Hastley has been described as a "CEO type," but he is also something of a criminal. He dives into people's dreams to extract information."
 
You can check our more over at InContention, though do keep in mind that there are the kind of spoilers you might not want to know this far out from its July 16 release date.
