What do James Cameron’s new sci-fi 3D epic and Twilight sequel New Moon have in common? For MySpace and Ustream, it’s the potential for another record-breaking red blue carpet premiere. (No word on whether or not the carpet “blue” itself.) The Avatar festivities will begin streaming live Wednesday at 6 p.m. PST via Ustream, hosted by MySpace.
In addition to the live-streaming, this morning MySpace is premiering the video for Leona Lewis’ closing-credits ballad I See You, Avatar’s equivalent to Titanic‘s My Heart Will Go On. The video for the frankly cheesy Lewis pop tune features plenty of shots from the film, as well as Lewis singing in front of a fog machine and laser show.
These next few days mark the end of Avatar‘s long, well-hyped journey to the IMAX screen, and given the film’s nature as a 20th Century Fox property the partnership with MySpace makes synergetic sense. The question is, of course, if the audience that’s dying to see the non-CGI versions of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver will match the number of those who clicked in droves for a glimpse of their favorite vampires and werewolves.
