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!
