James Cameron's game-changing sci-fi epic Avatar comes out on DVD next month, but you may want to hold off on buying it, because the movie may get an extended version when it's re-released in IMAX 3-D this summer. After leaving those theaters early to make way for Alice in Wonderland, the studio wants to go back in there and make more money, and they're going to do that by having Cameron add in another ten minutes or so of footage. (They can't add too much more, due to projector restrictions.) Now, I don't know about you, but if I'm going to sit through another 2-and-a-half hours of Avatar to get ten more minutes of story, it'd better include one or more of the following deleted scenes.
Having learned the hard way on Halloween nights as a child, snarfing candy hand over fist, I've long been a big believer in the old adage that you can have too much of a good thing. One person that doesn't seem to feel that way is James Cameron, who has spent the last ten years working on bringing his next project, Avatar, to the big screen. And in a plane just off the big screen. And now in a plane just off the even bigger screen. Lost yet? What I'm referring to is today's announcement that not only will Avatar be released in 3D, but it will also be released in IMAX 3D.
It's really hard for me to think of any way in which the first Iron Man movie could have been any cooler, which means that the second one is going to have to raise the bar a little. Luckily, director Jon Favreau is planning on strapping the bar to a jetpack. According to an interview with Collider, not only is Favreau hoping to emulate Dark Knight and shoot parts of Iron Man 2 in IMAX, but he's giving serious consideration to shooting some of it in 3D, as well. So let me get this straight: Iron Man will be really big and three-dimensional? Well, slap my ass and call me the Living Laser.
