See two seconds of new Avatar footage in TV spot for the re-release

07.20.2010

The subject of whether or not AVATAR is cash grabbing by coming back to theaters with only eight minutes of new footage is a pretty heated debate lately. As for my contribution to the discussion, I have the definitive answer.

Of course it’s a goddamn cash grab, and the studio has every right to do it.

Don’t think it’s worth it to pay for a full price ticket to see a movie in theaters again with only 3% new footage added onto it? Then don’t see it! But there are plenty of die-hards who will think it worth the cash, as well as many folks, like my parents, who missed the train on the film the first time around, and will now get to see it in IMAX 3D before that chance is gone forever. It’s not quite the same on Blu-Ray is it?

Anyway, this new TV spot has debuted for the re-release, and with it comes about two seconds of never before seen footage that involves Neytiri playing with Pandoran firedragonflies and Jake playing with some sort of homemade planetary mobile. There might be a few other half second bits I missed in there too.

The real question is, will this bonus footage included the famously deleted hair-braid-sex-scene between Neytiri and Jake? According to the banner ads on porn sites these days, there are plenty of people who are dying to see some Na’vi sex.

Extra Tidbit: I hear there's also a scene where Jake gets drunk as a Na'vi.

TDK Rerelease

Ummm, so The Dark Knight can get a rerelease after it's full theatrical run with no extra footage just to pimp its Oscar hopes and get baby sat over the line for 500mil domestic and 1 billion global and it's all cool.
But Avatar gets rereleased, with extra footage, after having it's 3D cut short by Alice and Clash taking a big chunk of it's screens and it's a shameless cash grab?
Ummm, a tad hypocritcal.

I was all about Avatar in December, but I really don't think I want to see it again. I won't be seeing this or have any interest in it.

(it works too; "gee wiz, people are seeing it, I should see it!") there are 0 redeeming qualities about avatar outside of its look. an "updated" version is not necessary. bring on the thumbs down fanboys!!

Wow . . .

. . . another 3 pages of how bad, unoriginal and overrated Avatar is. I wish this wasn't being rereleased for a different reason than most around here.

If I had already seen this in 3D the first time it came out, I wouldn't care to see it again in theaters, but since I didn't I really want to see this movie in theaters in 3D on the big screen. I do think Cameron is being a bit of an prick by re-releasing this movie that has already made a billion dollars then re-releasing the dvd again for only a super deluxe edition for everyone to buy yet again.

Wow, I thought nearly everyone on joblo bummed* this film when it came out. I think its one of those films where, given time, most people will realise they were duped.

*meaning 'anal sex', my American friends.

NOOOOOO!!!

I'd rather watch a Twilight movie over this crap. At least I can have a few laughs. I'd rather have a hilariously bad trip than "a bad trip."

I do not understand the love for it. And I am a huge Cameron fan. It was annoying hippy trash.
