TOKYO — Footage from the James Cameron 3-D sci-fi epic “Avatar” will screen at this year’s Tokyo Film Festival, organizers revealed on Monday.
The 16-minutes of footage will bow on the fest’s opening day, Oct. 17. Selected by Cameron himself, the footage will include scenes not yet seen anywhere. Cameron will not be on hand to present the footage, but will send a video message instead.
Nearly 12 years ago, on Nov. 1, 1997, Cameron’s “Titanic” received its world preem at the 10th edition of the fest. This year’s edition, the 22nd, will unspool Oct. 17-25.
