2nd Chance to See Avatar in 3D

24 Aug

In case you haven’t seen, Avatar, the highest grossing film of all time which just ended its runin theaters this past March, will be returning to theaters this Friday, August 27th.  Avatar: Special Edition be entirely in 3D, and include 9 minutes of new footage.

This winner of 3 academy awards is being re-released in 3D to allow movie goers who didn’t see it in 3D the chance to, as Avatar was pushed out of 3D theaters last summer to make way for new 3D releases.

According to Sandy Cohen of the Associated Press, director James Cameron is already planning sequels to Avatar, but it will be a few years before anything is concrete.

Will you be forking over another $15 to see Avatar’s extra 9 minutes?  Or did you not see it the first time around?  I did see it in 3D, and it was pretty awesome; I don’t know if an extra 9 minutes will persuade me to head into the theater, but you never know!

    I gotta say that with movies costing $11+ dollars, spending an extra 4 and getting the whole visual experience of Avatar isn’t too bad of a deal. That being said, I’m still on the fence about whether to take a second viewing.

    I haven’t seen Avatar in 3D, but everyone who has highly recommends it, so maybe I will end up going to the theater to see this. I have to admit the film was a little too long for me, but I can see how hardcore James Cameron fans would scramble to see 9 extra minutes of footage.
