Earlier this year James Cameron said that 20th Century Fox may be looking to re-release Avatar on 3D screens after all the summer blockbusters are out of the way. Alice in Wonderland, which was released in March, took over all the 3D screens after Avatar claimed them for 2 straight months. Apparently Avatar could have made another few hundred million if it still had them all to itself.
Now 20th Century Fox has announced that the highest grossing film of all time will be re-released on Digital 3D and IMAX 3D on August 27th with over 8 minutes of never before seen footage.
Here are the re-release dates for other countries:
BELGIUM 8 SEPTEMBER 2010
RUSSIA 26 AUGUST 2010
SPAIN 17 SEPTEMBER 2010
UK 27 AUGUST 2010
AUSTRALIA 26 AUGUST 2010
INDIA 27 AUGUST 2010
JAPAN 16 OCTOBER 2010
SOUTH KOREA 16 SEPTEMBER 2010
MEXICO 15 OCTOBER 2010
ARGENTINA 16 SEPTEMBER 2010
No word on how long it will be on screens for this time, however as the film currently sits at $2.7 billion worldwide they may be aiming for the $3 billion mark, at least.
Will 8 minutes of unseen footage spur you to see Avatar on the big screen again?
