A Turkish designer has been chosen as one of two finalists to design the poster for U.S. director James Cameron's highly anticipated science-fiction sequel, Avatar 2.

U.S.-based Goksan Ozman is already known for designing posters for big-budget Hollywood blockbusters including Noah with Russell Crowe, Gravity starring Sandra Bullock and The Wolf of Wall Street featuring Leonardo DiCaprio.

"I am really excited about the result. My target is to come first in designing the poster for Avatar which will come out in 2017," said Ozman, speaking to Anadolu Agency from the southwestern city of Antalya.

Stating that his work was one of the last two for the final from among 10 rival designs, Ozman said that it was “an honor” to be one of the remaining contenders.

"When you close your eyes, forget the emotion and the story and think of the name of the movie only one frame survives in your mind – and that is the poster for the movie.

"If you can catch this point in designing a poster, then it means that you have succeeded," he said.

Dropping some hints about the plot of the movie, Ozman said: "A prison theme will dominate the story and I have focused on that theme while designing this poster."

Ozman said the result will be announced at the end of 2015.
