Avatar, which hits DVD & Blu-Ray tomorrow, will be returning to theaters once again. James Cameron told The LA Times that the second film will focus on the oceans of Pandora. Cameron said, “We created a broad canvas for the environment of film. That’s not just on Pandora, but throughout the Alpha Centauri AB system. And we expand out across that system and incorporate more into the story – not necessarily in the second film, but more toward a third film.”
In terms of the re-release Cameron stated, “We’re working on finishing an additional six minutes of the film — which includes a lot of Weta work — for a theatrical re-release in August. We were sold out of our IMAX performances right up to the moment until they were contractually obligated to switch to “Alice in Wonderland,” so we know we left money on the table there. And the 3-D really helped “Avatar” right up until the moment that it hurt it. And it hurt it at the moment “Alice” and then “How to Train Your Dragon” and “Clash of the Titans” came in and sucked up all the 3-D screens.
The Whore will be skipping over tomorrows Blu-Ray with no special features in order to wait for the 4 disc set in November. We’ll also be skipping the re-release in the theater. Will YOU be spending another $15 on a ticket for 6 additional minutes of footage?
