James Cameron planting Hollywood tree Thursday for “Avatar” release


BY SEAN O’CONNELL

James Cameron made a promise. Now he’s putting his tree where his mouth is.

The Oscar-winning director will plant a tree this Thursday, April 22 — also known as “Earth Day” — to symbolically launch his announced initiative to plant 1,000,000 trees on behalf of his record-breaking sci-fi adventure, “Avatar.”

Cameron will be joined by “Avatar” producer Jon Landau and select members of the cast for a ceremony on the Twentieth Century Fox Studio Lot in Los Angeles. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Earth Day Network have partnered for the “Home Tree Initiative,” centered around the DVD release of “Avatar.” The program consists of planting one million trees native to each region in 15 countries by the end of 2010.

“Avatar” will be on shelves starting Thursday. Fox has promised a copy, and we’ll post our review as soon as possible.

    Maybe the long rich Cameron should plant some trees in remembrance
    of the gargantuan ‘peacetime’ genocide in his ‘fave’ captive mass market
    and cheap labor source —ACROSS the Pacific.

    —-Maybe he should plant about 70 million of them —ESP. as millions
    continue to suffer and die on this, the once again ‘mysteriously overlooked’
    60th Anniversary of the staggeringly relevant —STILL unfolding
    —KOREAN WAR…

    -Better listen up -n’ ‘fess up Jim! —’cause you ain’t lookin’ any younger
    and eternity’s a long time to be on the wrong side of revealed truth.

    -AMEN-
