Avatar Coming Back — With New Footage

posted by Nell Minow

“Avatar,” the top box office film of all time, had to leave theaters early to make way for “Alice in Wonderland,” so it is coming back in August with eight minutes of new footage. 20th Century Fox says,

On August 27, return to Pandora and re-experience James Cameron’s History-Making Epic film, with more than Eight Minutes of Never Before Seen Footage- exclusively in Digital 3D and IMAX® 3D. 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.

    Bittersweet news I think! I have already seen it four times. I guess I will just have to make it five now to see the additional footage. :-)

    I’ve gotten so jaded when I see these announcements about films being re-released with additional footage. Too often, I’ve seen the “extended” version and couldn’t tell the difference between it and the original, seems like most of the added footage was scenes that were allowed to run a tad longer. The extended DVD edition of The Lord of the Rings is the rare exception, where extending those films actually made a great trilogy even better.
    I also find it curious 20th Century Fox taking credit for the release of so many 3D films this summer. Granted, Avatar raised the bar with its 3D effects, but the majority of the films we’re seeing now would have already been in the can or darn close to it when audiences were first experiencing Avatar (not to mention 3D films like Up and A Christmas Carol were released before Avatar and doing quite well in their own rights).
