AVATAR Getting Extended Cut, Rerelease Next Month

James Cameron’s Avatar will be making a limited, 3D-only return engagement to theaters on August 27, presumably because they just didn’t make enough money the first time around.

The film will actually be eight minutes longer, with Cameron inserting previously cut scenes back in. According to the press release from 20th Century Fox, the new material will include “new creatures and action scenes.” Unfortunately, there is no word as to whether any new story or character moments will be added as well.

Presumably this extended cut will also be featured in the Avatar Ultimate Edition DVD/Blu-ray release scheduled for November.
