Our first glimpse of Avatar's future destroyed Earth: It's Vegas!

Our neon-tinged dystopian future cities used to be Tokyo, but now they've gone Vegas. Or so it would seem, from our first glimpses of Jake Sully on Earth from November's three-hour extended Avatar DVD. Which may actually be worth getting.

I have to say, if you're going to draw a sharp contrast with the ultra-colorful, glowing blue Pandora, having Earth be ultra-colorful and full of blue glow as well seems counter-intuitive. Although maybe that's the point? The blue glow on Earth is unnatural and neon, not spiritual and natural.

Here's another brief trailer, showing Jake Sully brawling on Earth:

You could seriously kill a weekend with this box set — and it might be pretty fascinating to see into Cameron's film-making process. I have a feeling this will be the nerd holiday gift. [Collider]
