The 22nd Annual Tokyo International Film Festival focused on ecology this year and welcomed their guests, including AVATAR’s Sigourney Weaver, Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington (pictured), on a green carpet made of recycled plastic bottles.

Although there were over 100 films screened at the festival, the most controversial was definitely The Cove, the documentary about the slaughter of dolphins in a secluded bay in Japan.  It seems that the film was originally not slated to play at the fest but according to the AP, “festival organizers added it at the last minute in part because of pressure from overseas.”

Cove director Louie Psihoyo, an American, plans to attend his film’s sold-out screening on Wednesday in spite of threats from Japanese police to arrest him for previous counts of trespassing while surreptitiously filming the massacres.

We’ll be keeping an eye out on Wednesday to see what goes down.
