First Look at Sigourney Weaver's Alien Avatar
Posted 08.27.09 by reelz
A bunch of scans from Empire's cover story on Avatar have popped up on line (via MarketSaw). They offer (among other things) a first look at Sigourney Weaver as a blue-skinned alien hybrid.
After the trailer debuted last week, there had been some complaints that Sam Worthington's avatar didn't look enough like him. You can check out some stills of him from the magazine and decide for yourself. For Weaver though, the resemblance is not really in question, as is evident in side-by-side photos of her as human and alien. They also show off one more cool aspect of inhabiting an avatar: You get to be younger.
You can also check out a couple of close-ups of Zoe Saldana as a Na'vi. No side-by-side comparisons though, since the character she plays is an alien native, not a human-Na'vi hybrid. And for those who just can't get enough, there is a second batch of photos as well, including a nice group shot in the jungles of Pandora.
