While it was the LA Times who gave us our first set photo from Avatar, it is the NY Times who have revealed the second.

The report by NY Times not only analyzes Avatar, but takes an in-depth look at Hollywood's big switch to the third dimension. Avatar is just one of many films that will be arriving in 3-D in 2009. What makes Avatar stand out is that it represents one of the few live-action 3-D films. Well, that and the fact that it's James Cameron's first big-budget feature since Titanic.

Some of the mightiest forces in film — Jeffrey Katzenberg, James Cameron, John Lasseter — think the multiplex masses will soon demand that all movies be shown in newly available digital 3-D. Mr. Katzenberg, in particular, has pushed the format, trotting the globe to herald the technology as a transformative moment for cinema akin to the introduction of sound.

His bandwagon has plenty of passengers, at least in Hollywood. The Walt Disney Company alone has 15 three-dimensional movies in its pipeline. Twentieth Century Fox is betting an estimated $200 million on “Avatar,” a 3-D space adventure directed by Mr. Cameron and set for December release, his first nondocumentary film since 1997’s “Titanic,” still the biggest moneymaker in movie history, without counting inflation. All told, the movie factory has over 30 3-D pictures on the way.
