Some of you may have thought (or hoped that) you would never heard about James Cameron's Avatar ever again, but you were wrong. 20th Century Fox has officially announced that Avatar will be returning to theaters worldwide starting on August 27th next month with an extra 8 minutes of "never before seen" footage added. "Since - and largely as of result of - Avatar'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 studio said. Avatar is back baby!
Yes, we know that Fox is milking this movie for every penny they can get, between the $2.7 billion it earned in theaters, to the double-dip DVD/Blu-Ray offerings (we still haven't seen a special edition yet), to this new re-release, which I wouldn't be surprised to see happen every year. And you know what, I'm totally fine with all this. I bought the Avatar Blu-Ray (which is in 2D) and tried to watch it, but couldn't get into it. I guess it felt incomplete in 2D watching it on my small screen, so having the chance to see it again in theaters in 3D with more footage, I'm sold. So let the Avatar hate (or love) begin again, as it will be returning to theaters.
