I knew it was inevitable, I knew that Avatar coming to DVD as quickly as it did was just a diversion. I mean, I knew that it was only meant for an Earth Day release and that they would be coming out with another DVD release later on. But, with the amount of money that this movie made, its hard to believe that they wouldn’t try to milk it out for all it was worth. Especially seeing that they could essentially make the Star Wars/Lord of the Rings move of producing another version of the film, this time with added footage that was cut out of the original release.
I figured I’d post this so my Father could show my Mom, who loves ‘Avatar’ and then get talked into going to see it again in the theater…good luck!
James Cameron’s Avatar is officially returning to theaters on August 27th
We reported on this back in March, and it’s interesting to see how much the announcement polarized readers, with some digging the idea of getting a chance to see it on the big screen again in 3D (with new footage), while others called it a George Lucas-like move. Ouch.
In any event, it’s officially official and the date is set: August 27, 2010. By this time next year, Cameron will be able to afford to build himself f*cking Atlantis.
On August 27, return to Pandora and re-experience James Cameronâ€™s History-Making Epic film, with more than Eight Minutes of Never Before Seen Footage- exclusively in Digital 3D and IMAXÂ® 3D. Since – and largely as of result of – AVATARâ€™s release last December, the number of available digital 3D screens has exploded, and moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D, as well as fans that want to return to Pandora again, will now have that opportunity.
The OscarÂ® and Golden GlobeÂ® winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in over $2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also the top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time.
