I09 recently got a hold of the above still of Jake Sully, which takes place after the deleted bar fight scene.  In the scene, Jake Sully sees some guy slap a woman and decides to give him a paraplegic-style beat down. But fighting someone else’s fight and trying do the right thing only gets him thrown out, where he lies in the street, sprawled in the shape of a crucifix.  Now, I know what you’re thinking, bros – “A biblical allusion — in a sci-fi movie?!?  That’s insane!”

But it’s true.  James Cameron went there.  Turns out Avatar was even more of a game changer than we thought.  Game.  Changer.
