PANDORA COMES TO LIFE LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH THE ULTIMATE HOME VIEWING EXPERIENCE

AVATAR ON BLU-RAY 3D

Over 33 Million Facebook Fans Receive Exclusive Global Announcement as the Film That Became a Worldwide Phenomenon Arrives on Blu-ray 3D in October
 


LOS ANGELES, CA. (August 14, 2012) – The world of Pandora has never looked better as over 33 millionAVATAR Facebook fans were the first to learn of the upcoming release of the AVATAR Blu-ray 3D Collector’s Edition, debuting globally beginning October 15, releasing in North America October 16, from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A home entertainment experience like no other, for the first time ever, fans will be able to welcome James Cameron’s global box office sensation into their homes in stunning 3D high-definition.

“3D television is the future of home entertainment,” said James Cameron, the Oscar® winning Director. “I’m a huge proponent of the technology and very pleased that AVATAR can be viewed in the living room the way it is meant to be seen.”

“As the number of homes with 3D televisions continues to grow, we thought it was important to bring the biggest 3D film ever right into your living room,” continued Jon Landau, Academy Award® winning Producer of Avatar. “This is the only way fans should experience the world of Pandora and this release offers the highest picture quality possible. ”Previously only available to consumers through an exclusive deal with Panasonic, the two-disc AVATAR 3D Blu-ray Collector’s Edition will feature the original theatrical release and be available in all-new collectible packaging. Seen by more than 310 million people worldwide, the Oscar and Golden Globe winning epic is the highest grossing film of all time, taking in more than $2.7 billion in worldwide box office. It is also top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time.

I'm in since I don't have the Panasonic version. I'm guessing then that this is a clone of that one, albeit in a combo-pack configuration?

good question. the panasonic had both the 3d and 2d theatre version on it. I wonder if this one will be 3d on the first disc only.. since there is a separate disc for the 2d version. Jacob

No extended cut or the exclusive BluRay cut? FOOLISHNESS! I will not be pleased until I have under my command the full power of each version of the film in 3D.... and a commentary by Cameron.

I'm not a big Avatar fan, but I have been waiting for this general release in order to finally see it in 3d. Theatrical cut is all I want; so I'm in for this release.

Just add the 3-D copy to the 3-disc DVD set you already have, which produces a decent special edition.

I just gave my Panasonic freebie a kiss.  Okay, not really, but at least this is one thing I don't have to empty my wallet on this fall!  Posted Image

Yeah I got a friend to give me his free Panasonic version since he has zero interest in 3D. He was going to throw the order form away and he let me send away for it. Don't see the point of upgrading unless it's the extended cut. Probably we'll get that along with Avatar 2 lol

Mr. Owl, how many dips will it take to get all of the Avatar Blu-rays for Avatar, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4? "A good question. Let's find out. Ah-one... ah-TWO-HOOO... ah-three... *CRUNCH* Ah-three." The world may never know.

Picked up a copy at Future Shop. Nice! :) Brought in an old DVD I had zero interest in anymore, and got a $10 Trade and Save coupon towards the purchase of it, bringing the price down to $19.99. Super Nice! :D By the way, can anyone tell me why it is that with Avatar, they managed to get both the 3D Blu-Ray, and 2D Blu-Ray on one disc, but with Titanic, the 3D Blu-Ray is spread out over 2 discs, with the 2D Blu-Ray on a separate disc? Just curious.

For 'Titanic', they changed the aspect ratio to 1.78:1 for the 3D presentation, in addition to other minor visual tweeks (e.g. hair removal) in order to better facilitate 3D. For 2D they wanted to keep the integrity of the original theatrical release, for the most part at any rate (e.g. aspect ratio of 2.35:1).

That makes sense. Thanks! :cool:

Has anybody heard any announcement of the extended AVATAR coming out in 3D? I want to wait for that if it's coming out later this year, but if not I want to get the theatrical release 3D. I don't want to wait forever. Bob Blenheim
