We’ve known for months that James Cameron wanted another chance to milk some more money out of allow audiences to see “Avatar” again in theaters.
The new director’s cut of “Avatar,” which will run eight minutes longer than the original version, will come out on August 27.
Fox announced that it will be released as a limited engagement exclusively in 3D theaters, including Imax 3D.
“Audiences repeatedly told me they wanted more of Pandora, and wished they could have stayed there longer. So we’re making that possible. ‘Avatar: Special Edition’ will be exclusively in 3D, and will have eight minutes of never before seen footage, including new creatures and action scenes. Whether you already love the movie, or you’ve never seen it, with this special edition, you’ll be seeing it like never before,” Cameron said.
