See Avatar in IMAX 3D one last time before you buy the DVD. Also, sequel update!

Apr. 15, 2010by:

The biggest blockbuster ever hits DVD and Blu-Ray next Thursday, April 22nd (Earth Day), but you won't be seeing it in any dimension other than dual. At least until 3D televisions and applicable DVD release of the movie hit the market, anyway.

So if you want to check out AVATAR on the extra-large screen in 3D, you'd better head out to the nearest AMC theater this weekend -- they're re-releasing the movie in IMAX this Friday and Saturday (April 16th & 17th) on just 61 screens across the country. Check out the full list of locations RIGHT HERE.

Also, if you're in a hurry to see an AVATAR sequel, better hit the braking thrusters. Because apparently James Cameron is taking his time. As producer Jon Landau tells Coming Soon: "Our pressure about an AVATAR sequel is self-imposed. We've always said that if the public wanted a sequel that we would do a sequel. That having been said, in my opinion, Jim has done two sequels in his career, and both times, he has at least equaled if not surpassed the original movie. We're only going to do it when we have a piece of material, a script, that we believe will be at least as entertaining and unique as the first movie was."

Landau does admit that once things build steam, it should take substantially less time to finished product than the first time around: "We figured out how to do it, and our goal in the next one is to do it more cost-effectively and more time-efficiently, and we have kept on a team of our technical staff who is working right now on Gen 2 of what we did, but with all the experience that we've had. We kept them on, and they're working for us right now."

The super-duper 4-disc ultimate edition (until the next one) of AVATAR will be released in November.

It's strange I liked the spectacle of this movie in the theatres. But, the thought of watching this at home on a smaller screen, and without the 3D doesn't appeal to me.

lol the guy believe AVATAR is as good as TERMINATOR or ALIEN?? Anything they do in AVATAR 2 will probably surpass AVATAR.

Can't wait!

Aliens and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are textbook examples of sequels done right. I have absolutely no worries about Cameron and company delivering with another Avatar film.

Although not a bad movie...

Aliens and T2 are still Cameron's best films.

They hold up to an infinite amount of viewings. Avatar will gather dust in my personal collection.

First of all... fox's claims that alice in wonderland and clash of the titans stole it's earnings. It is already the most successful film of all time, as the dvd preview even claims. So now there are 2 re-releases (this one and the previously reported summer re-release with extra footage, then the ultimate edition dvd, possibly in 3d.

Also, aren't 3d tv's out? they have them at best buy. I've seen it, and it looks surprisingly good. so i don't understand their reason for not releasing it in

WHAT IT DIDN'T MAKE ENOUGH MONEY THE FIRST TIME?

But I guess IMAX is the best way to watch it. It won't be as visualy impressive watching it at home.

Hopefully they give it a full re-release soon

My mom was in the hospital during its release, and she has been wanting to see this in theaters since forever. I'd love for her to have a chance to see something like this in theaters, as films like this usually come once a decade.

No Thanks.

Once was one time too many.

Glad to see that Fox isn't going to milk the DVD market for this one like New Line milked all those LOTR fans.

Yup, that last line of sarcasm was for free.

Not interested.


I'm almost as sick of the press for this as I was of the press for "The Dark Knight."

"We're only going to do it when we have a piece of material, a script, that we believe will be at least as entertaining and unique as the first movie was"

So they're applying the word "unique" in relation to bland, derivative, cliche crap?

No thanks Jim, I'll go out and have some drinks and avoid anymore hair sperm and blue elfs. Unless I'm in lower Manhattan.
