Yesterday, when tickets became available for the upcoming free preview of James Cameron's Avatar, the Internet was immediately brought to a screeching halt as servers crashed and connections timed-out. All over America, millions of potential Avatar fans were frustrated by their inability to get tickets for the 16-minute commercial preview. Considering the movie supposedly utilizes the latest, most advanced filmmaking technology, it was a little embarrassing for the studio's server to crash during a ticket giveaway.

But the situation was eventually resolved, and people were able to get the passes that will enable them to see if the ejaculatory praise that gushed out of Avatar's Comic-Con preview was justified. I mean, everyone will get that chance when the movie actually opens, in December, but waiting? Pfft. Waiting is for losers. Cool people watch one-eighth of the movie now, then pay to watch it again in four months.

In the meantime, however, we have an unreleased 90-second trailer for Avatar that was never officially released. You can watch it here after the jump....
