Does the new Avatar trailer look better than the last one?

The new full trailer for James Cameron's sci-fi epic Avatar is now live, and it gives us a lot better idea of the movie's storyline and a better look at what's being hyped as ground-breaking visual effects. The only thing missing in this is the widescreen and 3-D.

There's also a new official film Web site, a link to a Twitter feed and information on Avatar toys and games.

According to the official site:

Avatar takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. We enter the alien world through the eyes of Jake Sully, a former Marine confined to a wheelchair. But despite his broken body, Jake is still a warrior at heart. He is recruited to travel light years to the human outpost on Pandora, where corporations are mining a rare mineral that is the key to solving Earth's energy crisis. Because the atmosphere of Pandora is toxic, they have created the Avatar Program, in which human "drivers" have their consciousness linked to an avatar, a remotely-controlled biological body that can survive in the lethal air. These avatars are genetically engineered hybrids of human DNA mixed with DNA from the natives of Pandora ... the Na'vi.

Reborn in his avatar form, Jake can walk again. He is given a mission to infiltrate the Na'vi, who have become a major obstacle to mining the precious ore. But a beautiful Na'vi female, Neytiri, saves Jake's life, and this changes everything. Jake is taken in by her clan, and learns to become one of them, which involves many tests and adventures. As Jake's relationship with his reluctant teacher Neytiri deepens, he learns to respect the Na'vi way and finally takes his place among them. Soon he will face the ultimate test as he leads them in an epic battle that will decide nothing less than the fate of an entire world.

Avatar stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Lola Herrera and Joel David Moore. It premieres Dec. 18, 2009.

So does this look better than the teaser? Do you want to see it now?
