A new trailer for “Avatar: Special Edition” has been released by 20th Century Fox. The movie, set to come out Aug. 27, is being released in 3D and will include nine additional minutes of footage — justification for the “Special Edition” title. Although the extra footage was created for the theatrical rerelease, I’m waiting until the special edition Blu-ray (which will likely include the far more interesting behind-the-scenes features) before throwing more money James Cameron’s way.
Cameron recently shared details with Marketsaw about the new footage, as well as his plans for the “Avatar” sequels, while promoting the film’s rerelease:
It’s actually nine! [Extra minutes.] I added some since that press release. It’s all CG. None of it is kinda boring shots of people sitting around in offices at the base, drinking coffee. It’s all out in the rainforest, some of it is at night. There is a big hunt sequence that’s got a lot of flying, a lot of banshee stuff, riding direhorses, very high-energy, high-impact action. There’s a very powerful emotional scene towards the end that has been added back.
