Just can't get enough of James Cameron's Avatar, even after watching the limited theatrical re-release of the Special Edition two months back which included an additional 9 minutes of footage, and the pornographic version entitled, "This Ain't Avatar XXX 3D" (thanks, iO9 for permanently scarring my memories of Zoe Saldana's Neytiri).

Fret not. With the release of Avatar Extended Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and DVD on November 16th 2010.


One of the many gripes of movie critics and audiences alike on the much debated awesomeness of James Cameron's Avatar is the fact that Earth of the future (year 2154, to be precise) were never revealed. The argument had always been that should the audience be shown the cold, hard reality of Earth, the lush nature of Pandora would then be especially appreciated.

With the release of Avatar Extended Collector’s Edition on November 16th, fans can finally have a look on Earth with an exclusive alternate opening that features Jake Sully and his adventures (or rather misadventures) in a futuristic Las Vegas, prior to arriving on Pandora.

A couple of trailer has been released, allowing us for a few glimpse of the Philip K. Dick-Esque Earth, heavy with neon light and dark skies. Check them out after the jump.





Containing over 45 minutes of deleted scenes, Avatar Extended Collector’s Edition also features an extended length cut of the film with an additional sixteen minutes run-time. Check out the box and disc art after the jump, along with some official press information on the disc contents.




The three-disc AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and Theatrical Special Edition Re-Release DVD will both feature the original theatrical release, a special edition re-release, family audio track with all objectionable language removed and new collector’s extended cut with sixteen more minutes including an exclusive alternate opening Earth scene. Viewers will journey to the depths of Pandora with filmmakers during “Capturing Avatar“ an in-depth feature length documentary covering the 16 year filmmaker journey including all new interviews with James Cameron, Jon Landau and cast and crew. … The AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition Blu-ray will also have even more bonus material and interactive viewing. Through the unparalleled, interactive technology of Blu-ray, fans can dive further into the world of the Na’vi and experience the #1 international sensation from behind the scenes, with a “master class” on the production of the film. Leveraging the interactivity of Blu-ray, viewers can experience the full film in three stages of production: Performance Capture, Template (1990’s video game version) and Final as well as a composite of all stages in “Pandora’s Box”. This will be supported with interviews by Jim Cameron and the filmmakers and serve as a “master class” on the making of AVATAR.
