Camerons Avatar DVD / Bluray Features

Posted by: Michael

The fine folks at Collider got a chance to talk to James cameron about the upcoming release of Avatar on Bluray and DVD and he told them we can expect lots of goodies;

It will have a lot of great features, making of stuff and behind the scenes stuff. You’ll be able to do a branching experience where you can select if you want to watch the basic movie, if you want to watch the movie with six minutes of footage added back in, or if you want to watch an earlier cut of the film that has 30 or 35 minutes of additional footage. It will be an unrecognizable movie. You’ll be going on a journey into a whole different version of Avatar. And some of the scenes won’t be done because we won’t have the budget to finish 20 or 30 minutes of CG stuff. We’re taking the Greatest Hits six minutes and finishing that.

If you do that one experience, you’ll watch a movie that’s only about six minutes longer, but it’s seamless. If you do the other experience, you’re going to watch a movie that’s much longer and has a lot of stuff in it that you won’t recognize, some of which won’t be finished. It will be a little bit more like some of the Disney stuff that they do where they leave pencil tests in for scenes that were never done. That’s really more of a fan’s exploration of what the movie might have been, or a lot of the ideas that fed into it.

I enjoyed Avatar but really wish I had seen it in 3D and not 2D to get the full experience! 

Since its global theatrical release last December, AVATAR has continued to make motion picture history. Written by James Cameron and produced with his long-time collaborator Jon Landau, AVATAR stars Sam Worthington, Zoë Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Giovanni Ribisi, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Wes Studi and Laz Alonso.

Oscarâ and Golden Globe® winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in over $2.6 billion in worldwide box office.  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 civilization.  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.
