Director James Cameron attended the Japan premiere of his long-awaited film "Avatar" at Roppongi Hills on Monday night. Cameron, who was making his 6th visit to Japan, hadn't been here since "Titanic" in 1997. He said Japan has always been a lucky country for his movies.
Local celebrities who walked the blue carpet with Cameron and his wife Suzy Amis included Uno Kanda, Christel Takigawa, Dante Carver and Mika Mifune.
Cameron, 55, said he hopes Japanese fans will enjoy the journey to a world they have never seen before in the film, which raises the bar for special effects.
