Avatar 3D: Extended Cut To Be Released?Written by Ender on March 14, 2010 · Filed under TV/Movies
There’s talk of re-releasing Avatar but with an extended cut version of the highest grossing film to ever hit the screen this summer.
The extra footage is said to be around 10-12 minutes, which isn’t a lot, but any excuse to see Avatar in 3D again is good enough for me. Some of the extra scenes that could be added are Jake Sully’s avatar proving himself to the Na’vi and Tsu’tey getting drunk at a native festival.
To be honest, I don’t think it would be detrimental to the film for leaving these scenes out as I was amazed with Avatar both times that I saw it in all it’s 3D glory.
The reason for the possible re-release is because James Cameron reckons the studios have missed out on around $200 million because of the release of Alice in Wonderland in 3D which has replaced Avatar 3D in many cinemas.
Personally I think it should be left alone and take Avatar for what it is. A huge success that smashed all records. Just be proud of that Mr Cameron and move on. But saying that, I would watch it again if it was re-released. Hypocritical I know.
So would you like to go back to Pandora for an extra 10-12 minutes of extra footage or do you think James Cameron is getting a bit greedy?
