Filmgoers tend to expect game-changing visual effects from James Cameron. The 20 minutes screened at Comic-Con this summer received much buzz. At that event, Cameron introduced the footage, saying to the audience, "Are you ready to go to Pandora?" Avatar's plot involves an epic battle to establish a human settlement on the mysterious planet Pandora.

'Avatar,' which mixes live-action dramatic performances and computer-generated effects, marks Cameron's first big-screen dramatic feature since 1997's 'Titanic.' Anticipation is also particularly high because Peter Jackson's Weta Digital F/X house is handling 'Avatar''s groundbreaking visual effects.

The Webcast will air live on MTV.com on Thu. Dec. 3 at 3 PM EST and on MTV proper on Dec. 16 as part of the channel's 'Behind the Screen' series. 'Avatar' attacks theaters everywhere on Dec. 18.
