Default What made you want to see the movie?

Sorry if a similar topic already exists. I searched and couldn't find one though.

I'm just curious, what made you want to see the movie guys? Was it a trailer, a review, a recommendation from a friend or something else?

For me, it was a fragment of the music video for the theme song "I See You". Before that, I only had heard that such a movie existed and had seen a trailer (short TV version), but that's all. I was indifferent.
Then, one day, I saw the aforementioned fragment of the video in some TV program. It was short fragment in which we can see Neytiri blowing an atokirina, pushing Jake away after he "confessed" and then grieving over her dead father.
After I saw these scenes, the drama ones in particular, I felt like watching the movie. Few days later, I talked to my cousin. She mentioned the movie saying she watched it in the cinema and that it was great. Then I decided that I must see it too and another few days later I went to the cinema

In 2009, going to movies was just a regular thing for me. I had gone to see Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (ugh), Zombieland, Watchmen, Star Trek, Inglourious Basterds, and District 9 multiple times.

When I saw Avatar, I knew almost nothing about it. As someone who regularly keeps up with the newest movie trailers, I had somehow completely missed the hype train behind Avatar. I didn't see a trailer for it before any of the above listed movies, I hadn't seen any commercials for it. The lone exception was that I had seen the scene where Jake jumps off of the bomber shuttle onto Toruk and it had been so many months since I had seen that, that I had forgotten about it until I saw the scene in the movie properly.

In fact, I knew so little about it, I saw it when I did because I was worried I was going to miss it in theaters. I had seen Zombieland months earlier, but I saw it basically the day before it left theaters in my neck of the woods. I didn't want that to happen again, so I saw it what turned out to be only two weeks into it's theatrical run. Yes, I didn't know when Avatar was actually released until after I saw it.

But when I did see it, I was basically hooked from minute one when you saw the fade in to the Pandoran forest canopy.

The funny thing is, since Avatar, I've had largely stopped going to the movie theater until this year. I've been averaging two movies seen in a theater per year until 2018.

Same. I used to go to the theater a lot. When Avatar stopped showing, I basically stopped seeing movies; I've gone to the theater maybe 5 times since then.

I go to the theater regularly (well, before getting super busy the last few years and having very little free time). I used to go at least once a month. I love experiencing a movie "on the big screen", and a movie theatre is my church, my refuge, where you can escape the outside world and become immersed in another world. Well, Avatar certainly fit that bill. I actually had not heard about it until a co-worker, who knew I was a James Cameron fan (Terminator 2 had been my favourite movie until Avatar) told me to check out the trailer. As soon as I saw the trailer I exclaimed "A James Cameron film with Sigorney Weaver in it and robot suits? I have to see this movie!" I went to see it the day after Christmas 2009, in 3D of course, and was blown away. When Jake opens his eyes at the end of the film and it cuts to the AVATAR title, my jaw hung open and all I could say was "Wow!". It took 3 months for me to get to see it in IMAX 3D, because the screenings were selling out weeks in advance!

Oh boy, lets see. I have always been into aliens and tribal things. Plus, I am also a huge nature lover too. When I first saw the previews, I kept seeing "the blue cat aliens" as what i referred to them as at the time. I saw they were tribal and that IMMEDIATELY won me. Aliens+tribal+nature??? HECK YES!! Not only was it just the Na'vi and Pandora, the movie also just looked really badass. I am not really into sci-fi movies, but I definitely love quite a few of them.

Eventually I saw the movie and COMPLETELY fell in love. It was WAY better than I imagined. But yeah, the Na'vi themselves is honestly what lured me into seeing the movie.
