Watch: Brand New TV Spot for Avatar's Extended Re-Release
Here we go again. Don't get angry, we all knew this was coming, even though not everyone loved the movie. Fox has begun airing this new TV spot (found via ComingSoon) for the Special Edition re-release of James Cameron's Avatar, in theaters in August. It was announced a couple of weeks ago that Avatar would be returning to theaters with around 8 minutes of extra footage. A few bits and pieces of that new footage can be seen in this TV spot, but they're mere glimpses, so it's hard to tell how much more action or drama we'll get. I'm probably going to go check this out, I'd like to see it again, but I know not everyone does. Have fun!
Watch the TV spot for 20th Century Fox's Special Edition Re-Release of Avatar:
Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine on the planet Pandora who, as an Avatar - a human mind in an alien body - finds himself in a desperate fight for his survival and that of the indigenous species called Na'vi.
Avatar is both written and directed by Oscar winning visionary filmmaker James Cameron, of Piranha II, The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, True Lies, and Titanic previously. He has been developing the technology to make this movie for the last 10 years. Fox will be re-releasing James Cameron's Avatar in 3D as an extended "Special Edition" in theaters on August 27th later this summer.

i will probly watch again, great experience first time around, and guys, if 13 bucks is too expensive for you, internet forums and your opinion on a crtically acclaimed blockbuster which made more money than any of us could in a lifetime should be the least of your worries....sure everyone is entitled to their opinion, but "FUCK AVATAR" and "JAMES CAMERON SUCKS" come on.....its a job he does, and he does it well....key word there, fellas.....job.

james cameron directs superficial big budget movies with stories that go nowhere. Avatar's story is just one big cliche.. the only thing that makes the movie watchable is the 3d..which is just another novelty marketed to the dumb masses

I'll pass on Pocahontas and the Smurfs Dance with Wolves in Fern Gully. Seeing it once was bad enough, twice with even more crap? No thank you.
Sroe on Jul 18, 2010
I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
N. M. Singh on Jul 18, 2010
It's like Christmas - all over again. I'll be there.
BaleHail on Jul 18, 2010
I´ll pass on another theater showing and instead download the longer version.

Oh, hell no!!

It's so funny to see the backlash against this film, becaude i'm almost certain the same people writing these things like "fern gully with smurfs" and "dances with smurfs" are the same youngins who boight tickets on opening day or weekend, were blown away by and saw ut more than once like everyone else. Backlash only exists because part if you feels bad for liking it so much. Just enjoy it, guys. It was meant to entertain and it succeeds at that like few movies possibly could.

I've never heard of this movie.....is this new? (le sigh)

I wasn't very entertained by it. But I can understand that kids are.
ryderup on Jul 18, 2010
Only 8 minutes of new footage sounds like weak excuse to re-release the movie... (i am aware that it is physically not possible to release a longer movie) In the Netherlands it just left the theater two weeks ago. Then again, it is the best 3D experience available right now, and theaters are heavily invested in 3D equipment.

Translation of the TV spot: We Want $. So remember the movie that made alot of $. Well You can see that agian with more fottage of WOLLOWING IN THE WOODS! I know! i pissed myself when i heard that too. Dont worry, this is not in any way a reason to make $

Oh new footage... well, pity that in Italy we are not getting a theater release for this. LOL Italy is a doomed country.

Avatar was the first movie I ever watched in 3D so it was a pretty amazing experience for me. Yes, the story is as old as the world and has been told even before Pocahontas and Dances with Wolves even existed, but it was well told and wrapped up in shiny visuals. I liked it it. As for the extended version...I really don't care. On top of that, unless you haven't seen the movie before, 8 minutes seems way too little new material to justify paying another $16 at the theater.
SuicidalOptimist on Jul 18, 2010
After all the hoopla surrounding this movie, I watched it and was like that was a freakin good movie. An epic? No. Just great filmmaking is all and add a little 3-D to the mix and you have the entire planet hooked. Don't need extra footage unless it's like 15 minutes extra.
Eli on Jul 18, 2010
#8 I didn't even buy a ticket to go see it. Someone bought it for me to see it 2 weeks after it came out. I sat through the excruciatingly horrible script and cookie cutter story once I don't see a reason to do it again.
Sroe on Jul 18, 2010
@8. I did not enjoy this movie. I didn't pay to see it multiple times. I didn't see it multiple times at all. I refuse to admit that I liked this movie, because I truly did not enjoy it. It wasn't good.
Chazzy on Jul 18, 2010
@ 8 i waited for it to come out on blu-ray & yes i enjoyed the film. i just think the director is a prick,a money grabbing prick. 8 minutes of extra footage,that he just couldn't release the first time round.
deadpool 72 on Jul 18, 2010
I'd go if it was like 20 or 30 minutes, but 8? Come on.
Lar on Jul 18, 2010
This was one of the best looking effects shows I've ever seen; but the story was mind-numbingly dull. I never did see it in 3-D, so I'm curious about how that would look; but I missed it, on it's first run, through theaters and will likely miss it this time. As far as Cameron is concerned, I don't think he set out to tell all that complex a story, with 'Avatar'. He set out to make a huge splash, with the effects and the 3-D. It would seem that he more than accomplished his goal.

@ you've got to be the biggest moron from the ant-Cameron bandwagon that I've come across yet. To be saying that his movies go nowhere is stupid at least. All of his films have themes whether you like it or not - if you're too obtuse to see it, I feel sorry for you or your blind hatred for Cameron.

#21 - i expected much more out of the story from avatar. over 10 years in the making and what they came up with was a story that at best was a rip-off of other movie/book plots. for all the hype - avatar wasn't very good.......i thought it was more of a 2+ hour tech demo than movie. i''m sorry you're too much of a cameron fanboy to see it. and by the way: 3D IS a novelty to get more money out of the sheeplike masses.

For all people who think Avatar was not good, please see Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen will see which one really sucks!!!!
George on Jul 18, 2010
Personally, I didn't avatar. And beside the second transformers was good. But it wasn't as good as the first one. And if you think that the first one sucked, think back. Did you really think it sucked. Or did you come out of the movie theater thinking it was awesome. Think about it George.
King Aweasome on Jul 18, 2010
LinkfX, Thats right, because disliking a film for being overly cliched is impossible? It was great effects only. That was all. I knew the plot from the trailer and was massively disappointed by that fact. You were right about one thing though, I was there on opening night with a huge smile on my face, by the time the lights went back on however, it was pretty much the opposite.
Al on Jul 18, 2010
Al, you have to give credit to the film for its solid directing and overall presentation. The story itself was blah blah blah, but it had enough depth to deserve some credit...right?
Eli on Jul 18, 2010
I would put INCEPTION up against AVARETARD any day. Its shorter, better , and ten times as fun to watch. I saw Avatar once and while I will agree it is a Visual epic, there's no way you would get me to sit through it again. 3D , 8minutes of footage more or not. That story is just not that gripping. Some would argue the same about INCEPTION , but I would disagree. It's like really good candy versus Prime rib. As always, make up your own mind.
MMH on Jul 18, 2010
I'm not a big fan of Avatar, but I'll check this out only for the 3D experience.

Anyone who pays to see this again is a straight sucker.
graffiti bandit on Jul 19, 2010
Transformers 1 was great, the second one sucks! the script, the acting, even the transformers sucks because how they can kill Devastator so easy, and I was expecting more due to the tittle!
George on Jul 19, 2010
They're trying to hit the 3 billion dollar mark. I doubt they'll generate an extra 300 million, but then again there is nothing good coming out in August so it's possible.
Vic on Jul 19, 2010
Sorry, James. Good movie, but I won't pander to your gratuitous money-grabbing. I may rent the extended cut when it comes out on Blu-Ray, but then again I may not.
Morlock on Jul 19, 2010
I admit fully that will go see it again in IMAX, in 3D, with a date, after a dinner at Ruth's Chris for every dime that I have at the time... But for some reason that TV spot makes me sad... Like those ads at the end of "Attack if the Clones" Theatrical run when the trailer man would say: "who da man??? Yo-da man!' Go see yoda in Theatres now..." (then they did it again for the dvd release). The same WTF feeling in the pit of my stomach. Why does LOTR seem to do everything right with their director's cut (among other things) and the Fox's of the world just go and tap the well right in fornt of our eyes. At least pretend you're not insulting my intelligence.
Solo Calrissian on Jul 20, 2010
Label me a sucker. Loved the movie and will probably check it out again.
jjboldt on Jul 21, 2010
I think James Cameron is a money gripping jackass. You already made a shit load of money off of a movie that wasn't even that good. Now he's putting it out again. Greedy son of a bitch.
King Aweasome on Jul 21, 2010
All of you anti-Avatar people are clueless. Fox was gonna rerelease this movie in IMAX no matter what. It was still selling out theaters when it got forced out of IMAX and other 3D theaters when that piece of garbage Alice in Wonderland came out. You should be grateful that they decided to add something to the movie instead of just rereleasing the same thing again. By the way no one is making anyone buy a fucking ticket. Please by all means stay the fuck away from the theaters so that I'm guaranteed a seat when August 27th comes around.
