The trailer for James Cameron's eagerly awaited 3-D epic Avatar has gone live at the Apple QuickTime Movie Trailers site. (Update: Apple seems to be having problems with the launch, but keep checking back until it's there—that's all we'll be doing this morning! Meanwhile you can see the trailer here—in French—discovered by Cinematical.)

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who is thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an "avatar," a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people.

Avatar opens Dec. 18.
