James Cameron is unlocking the secrets of Pandora and taking fans on a guided tour of his vision with the highly anticipated release of AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and DVD releasing November 16th in North America and rolling out internationally from November 15th. These exclusive Extended Collector’s Editions come with iconic, collectible packaging to get fans to experience Pandora like never before. With three versions of the film, AVATAR fans will get an all-new extended cut of the film and hours of never-before seen material including over 45 minutes of amazing deleted scenes!

“I told our team — let’s do the ultimate box set of Avatar, with everything in it the fans could possibly want. There’s an extended length cut that’s sixteen minutes longer, plus documentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, artwork and over 45 minutes of deleted scenes. Everything worth putting into a special edition is in this set,” said James Cameron.

The three-disc AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and Theatrical Special Edition Re-Release DVD will both feature the original theatrical release, a special edition re-release, family audio track with all objectionable language removed and new collector’s extended cut with sixteen more minutes including an exclusive alternate opening Earth scene. Viewers will journey to the depths of Pandora with filmmakers during “Capturing Avatar“ an in-depth feature length documentary covering the 16 year filmmaker journey including all new interviews with James Cameron, Jon Landau and cast and crew exploring James Cameron’s unique vision for the film seen by more than 310 million people worldwide. The Oscar and Golden Globe 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.

The AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition Blu-ray will also have even more bonus material and interactive viewing. Through the unparalleled, interactive technology of Blu-ray, fans can dive further into the world of the Na’vi and experience the #1 international sensation from behind the scenes, with a “master class” on the production of the film. Leveraging the interactivity of Blu-ray, viewers can experience the full film in three stages of production: Performance Capture, Template (1990’s video game version) and Final as well as a composite of all stages in “Pandora’s Box”.

Avatar sequel will dive into the oceans of Pandora

April 21st, 2010

The Avatar DVD and Blu-ray is soon here. But Cameron is talking about the Avatar sequel already, and it’s going to take place in the ocean of Pandora.

“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. I’ve already announced this, so I might as well say it: Part of my focus in the second film is in creating a different environment – a different setting within Pandora. And I’m going to be focusing on the ocean on Pandora, which will be equally rich and diverse and crazy and imaginative, but it just won’t be a rain forest. I’m not saying we won’t see what we’ve already seen; we’ll see more of that as well.”

Sounds good if you ask me, in Cameron we trust :)

Go see Avatar in IMAX 3D, again – last chance

April 16th, 2010

Great news. If you still have an urge to see Avatar at the movies one last time, you have the chance this coming weekend.

It is our duty to bring you news and information about movies showing in theaters, so we have to let you know about the upcoming re-release of James Cameron’s Avatar in theaters this weekend, even though I don’t really understand the point of it. AMC will be re-showing Avatar in 61 theaters in 29 cities in the US on April 16th and 17th (Friday and Saturday) in glorious IMAX 3D. The real reason is that Avatar hits DVD and Blu-Ray on April 22nd (Earth Day!) next week and this is your very last chance to see Avatar “the way director James Cameron intended it to be experienced.” I’m not sure this is truly your last chance, though.

The only bad news is that the only showtimes for Avatar are at 11PM at night on Friday and Saturday. What the heck AMC? Why choose the absolute worst times to show a 3 hour movie? If you still want to go, you can click here for info on locations and tickets. This is not the extended cut of Avatar will be released back into IMAX theaters sometime in late summer. This is simple a double-dip last minute cash grab to get people out to see Avatar in theaters before it hits DVD and I’m not sure that many people care. Unfortunately this is a pretty half-assed attempt on AMC’s part. I think they should be running it more than just at 11PM, come on!

I’m planning on picking up Avatar next week on Blu-Ray and watching it when I get it then. But I don’t plan on re-watching it in theaters (in 3D) until the extended release hits sometime later this year. Anyone else?

Avatar DVD will be out before June 30

February 3rd, 2010

According to News Corp. chairman and CEO (who owns Fox that financed Avatar), Rupert Murdoch, the Avatar DVD will be in stores sometime before June 30. He did’nt mention anything about Blu-Ray but I assume a Blu-Ray version will be released at the same time as the DVD. I also assume that he in fact means a Blu-Ray release (not DVD) when he talks about 3D versions of Avatar.

However, we will not get the 3D release just yet, that we will have to wait an unspecified extra time to get our hands on.

There is also talk about the upcoming Avatar sequel and that they are in “very early talks about it.” Director James Cameron “has ideas” for a sequel, he said, adding: “We will be pushing for one.”

NEW YORK — News Corp. is in very early talks with James Cameron about a possible “Avatar” sequel.

Asked about potential “Avatar” sequels, chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch said on his quarterly earnings call Tuesday that the conglomerate is in “very early talks about it.” Director James Cameron “has ideas” for a sequel, he said, adding: “We will be pushing for one.”

But he cautioned analysts not to “hold your breath for an early one” in a possible reference to Cameron projects often taking a long time to come to fruition.

News Corp. deputy chairman, president and COO Chase Carey interjected that both sides want to make another movie. “We certainly both intend to have one,” he said.

The executives said financing of a sequel like of any movies these days would be key as News Corp. likes to lay off risk, especially since Cameron films tend to go over budget. But given the success of “Avatar,” financing details could come together.

Management also said 60% or more of the profit from “Avatar” will come in over the next two quarters, adding the firm will continue its theater run as the boxoffice goes well, with a DVD release also planned soon after the theatrical run. A DVD release date hasn’t been announced so far.

Pushed further on details about the DVD plans for “Avatar,” Murdoch said it will be released during his company’s current fiscal year, which ends June 30. But he also highlighted that it won’t be a 3D DVD release as that technology isn’t developed enough yet. But Carey added there could be a 3D “Avatar” DVD release further “down the road” when the technology is ready.

Avatar DVD and Blu-ray information

January 27th, 2010

avatar_dvd

I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the upcoming release of the Avatar DVD and Blu-ray this past weeks.

Cameron has said that he anticipates the film to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray sometime June-August, but doesn’t expect a 3D version of the film to be released immediately.

He said this in December, before he knew what level of success Avatar would have, so maybe it’s more likely that we get the DVD and Blu-ray release somewhere around September-November since Avatar still performs strong at the Box Office.

Probably the initial Blu-ray release of Avatar won’t be in 3-D and then a subsequent release will be in 3-D. That’s my guess right now. So we will probably put out a disk, you know, in six or eight months, let’s call it six months, and then after that we will have a 3-D disc when there are enough sets available.

In regards to any special content, Cameron revealed that there are about 10 to 12 minutes of footage that may be included on the home video release either as deleted scenes or as part of an extended edition.  One scene in particular focuses on Worthington’s character Jake Sully in his Avatar form, hunting a Sturmbeest — which is no longer seen in the movie.

MTV: Is there a sequence or two that you can describe for me that maybe will make it — whether it’s a director’s cut or an expanded edition — on DVD?

Cameron: …It’s a creature you no longer see in the movie,” Cameron said. “[Sully] has to learn how to hunt through the air and do this incredibly brave thing, and then after the hunt they have this big festival and they dance and there’s a drunk scene with [Na'vi member] Tsu’tey, which is Laz Alonso’s character, which is actually pretty damn funny.
