9 Jul – Twentieth Century Fox and James Cameron today announced that "Avatar: Special Edition" will be released in Singapore and Malaysia cinemas 26 August, in a limited engagement and exclusively in Digital 3D.
This version of Cameron's history-making and groundbreaking epic will include more than eight minutes of new footage. Since - and largely as of result of – "Avatar"'s release last December, the number of available digital 3D screens has expanded, and moviegoers who missed experiencing the film in 3D will now have that opportunity.
James Cameron commented, "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."
The Oscar and Golden Globe® winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in over US$2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also the top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time. Director James Cameron takes audiences to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on a journey of redemption and discovery as he leads a heroic battle to save a civilisation. "Avatar" delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the epic nature of the story.
"Avatar: Special Edition" will hit cinemas beginning 26 August 2010!
