Kepada peminat Avatar, di sini penulis cuba kongsikan bersama beberapa keping gambar dan sedikit petikan video berkaitan yang diambil dari tiub awak (YouTube).
The real Avatar Floating Mountain
The mountains used in the block buster movie Avatar were previously called as Southern Sky Mountains. The mountains are situated in a beautiful part of southern China. These mountains which have recently been renamed to the Avatar Hallelujah Mountains after the floating mountains. The floating Hallelujah Mountains in the movie were the inspiration of a Hollywood photographer who, in 2008, shot photos of the Southern Sky Column Mountains.
Chinese City Names “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain”
The movie Avatar is breaking box office records in China. Its become the first film there to earn more than $100 million during its run.
Now a city in Hunan Province has officially renamed a local mountain, “Avatar Hallelujah Mountain.”
The city of Zhangjiajie’s website says the mountain was filmed by a Hollywood photographer in 2008, and claims it was the inspiration for Avatar’s floating Hallelujah Mountains. Although director James Cameron has been quoted as saying the mountains were inspired by the famous Huangshan mountain range in Anhui Province.
Zhangjiajie’s website says that tourism to the area will increase after the name change, and a state-run travel agency is already offering Avatar-themed tour packages.
But the name change was not without controversy. After an online backlash, local officials denied naming the mountain after the movie. One official told state-run China Daily that they were just protecting their mountain’s “authority” and tourism brand.
It’s not the first Avatar-related controversy in China. Last week, officials ordered theaters to pull the 2D version of the film to make way for a film about Confucius. It came after Avatars themes of cultural suppression and land seizure—issues considered sensitive by the Chinese regime—became major discussion topics among Chinese Internet users.
Sengaja tajuk pada entri kali ini penulis tulis ‘Peminat Avatar’, tapi itu bukan bermakna penulis minat akan movie ini.
Bukti yang ketara sekali penulis tidak meminati movie ini adalah penulis masih belum menonton movie ini walaupun telah lama ditayangkan dan telah berjaya memecah box-office dan kutipan melebihi cerita Titanic.
Walaupun penulis banyak mendapat respon yang baik dari kawan-kawan yang telah menonton movie ini, namun belum berjaya menggugat dan menarik hati ini untuk menonton. Mungkin penulis masih belum berkesempatan untuk menonton buat masa dan ketika ini.
