It’s been rumored for a while, but now it’s official. The extended cut of Avatar will hit theaters on August 27th, according to the film’s official site. While earlier rumors pegged the number of additional minutes to be as high as twenty, the official word is that the movie will only be extended by eight minutes.
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 IMAXÂ® 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.
The OscarÂ® and Golden GlobeÂ® 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.
It’ll be released in all the same formats as before, so if you are one of the three people on this planet who haven’t seen it yet now’s your chance to do so on a big screen.
