How James Cameron's 3D film could change the face of cinema forever
A movie revolution will take place at the end of the year potentially offering as big a leap in our viewing experience as the change from black and white television to colour.
James Cameron, the film director who pushed technical effects to the limit with the blockbuster Titanic in 1997, and ushered in the dawn of action films pandora leather bracelet with '80s classics such as Terminator and Aliens, has unleashed the film he has been hoping to make for nearly 20 years.
Avatar, when it is released in December, will be the most ambitious 3D film ever released, and the first trailer, unveiled on the Internet yesterday, gives us a glimpse of the future.

Avatar: The film is set on a distant planet, allowing luscious scenery in full 3D. In this scene, a spaceship prepares to land in a verdant forest on the world of Pandora
The storyline follows the future battle between Earth and alien moon Pandora, a 'terrifyingly beautiful' world full of strange creatures and rich minerals.
But while James Cameron is known for packing his sci fi films with strong storylines from the fatherhood theme of Terminator 2 to the motherhood theme of Aliens the story which will dominate this charms for pandora bracelet film's release is the 3D experience.
It's not the first time cinema has flirted with 3D Alfred Hitchcock even experimented with the technology when he pandora jewelry online order filmed Dial M for Murder in the 1950s.
But the results have often been derided, either for pandora gold silver charms hokey effects or poor stories, with Spy Kids 3D and Journey to the Centre of the Earth both getting a lukewarm reception.
However the $237m budget of Avatar
signals a leap in technology indeed, Cameron waited 15 years before
starting filming as technology had not advanced enough to portray hisBreath taking: Cameron developed new technology that could revolutionise film making
Tired of waiting for technology to catch up, he co developed a new generation of stereoscopic cameras.
Simplified, this is the equivalent of two cameras strapped together, each providing a slightly different perspective on the scene, mimicking the way human eyes view the world in three dimensions.
This changes the ballpark of moving images.
If you've had previous experience of 3D, your impression will probably be one of a flattish image with the occasional object 'flying' at you'.
But these advances are different the entire screen has depth, taking on the appearance of a window through which the viewer is watching a 'world' on the screen, with a distinct foreground and background, rather than a flat, moving painting
In effect, the cinema screen becomes a theatre stage.
There's still at least one throw back to the 'early days' of 3D viewers will need to wear glasses to get the illusion.
However these are not the red and green
cardboard cut outs you used to get free with Sugar Puffs before ComicThese are polarising glasses, untinted, which do not cause
the headaches experienced in the past, or more importantly rely on frequent 'pans' of the camera to make the image appear in 3D.
Each lens has a different filter, which removes different part of the image as it enters each eye. This gives the brain the illusion it is seeing the picture from two different angles, creating the 3D effect.

Continuing to develop new technology as he went along, Cameron also devised a 'virtual camera', a hand held monitor that.
