Avatar 3D Blu-ray Release Date and Pre-order

Posted August 14, 2012 10:20 AM by Webmaster

20th Century FoxThe wait is over, James Cameron's Avatar will finally get a wider release on 3D Blu-ray this fall. The Avatar 3D Blu-ray release date was just revealed this morning and the North American release is set for October 16, while the global debut is slated for October 15. Previously only available as part of a bundling offer from Panasonic, this will be the first time Avatar 3D Blu-ray is sold in stores and it is available now to pre-order from Amazon for $27.99



"3D television is the future of home entertainment," said Cameron, "I'm a huge proponent of the technology and very pleased that 'Avatar' can be viewed in the living room the way it is meant to be seen."

"As the number of homes with 3D televisions continues to grow, we thought it was important to bring the biggest 3D film ever right into your living room," continued producer Jon Landau, "This is the only way fans should experience the world of Pandora and this release offers the highest picture quality possible."

The two-disc Avatar 3D Blu-ray Collector's Edition will feature the original theatrical release and be available in all-new collectible packaging.

Avatar 3D Blu-ray Collector's Edition will feature the original theatrical release. Too bad its not the extended edition. Lost a sale on this one.

So this means that in the future there will probably be yet another Avatar release for the 3D Extended Cut? I guess Cameron needs the money to build a new submarine.

Yeah, kind of lost a sale with me too. I only bought the 3 disc special edition version but there was a lot of good stuff in the extended material. When faced with 3D or extended, as much as Avatar had great 3D, I'm going to likely pass.

If you know James Cameron, you should have already known that it wasn't gong to have the extended version. He'll release down the road (more money, more money, more money). With that said, I'll wait for the inevitable 3D extended version down the road.

I guess I'll be waiting for the extended 3D edition, which is sure to come sometime in the future. As much as I like Avatar and its escapism, it's useless to double dip for just 3D when the 3D extended version will certainly eventually come around.

I've held off on owning any edition of Avatar b/c I'm highly cautious of double dips. Why this set does not include the extended edition or the special features from the first Avatar double dip is beyond me. I'll wait for round 4.

The special edition release wasn't a double dip for me because we saw it coming. Plus at the time I didn't see myself owning a 3DTV. So even though I do now, I am fine waiting.

I'm really surprised they aren't releasing at least the Special Edition.

I mean, it came out theatrically in 3D, so it's not as if they need to render the extra footage included in that version.

BluBrown, its was offered day one if you bought a Panasonic 3D setup. The fight for exclusive rights to blu rays kept this out of hands of most people and is the reason why I've yet to invest in 3D. I'll pick this up but will likely wait one more year till I buy a 3D setup.

I don't know if I necessarily agree that 3D is the future of home entertainment. Others may have a different opinion however watching a movie whilst wearing additional hardware isn't my idea of comfortable. I like 3D, but only in LARGE scale solutions like IMAX. Even the RealD 3D theaters aren't completely adequate for me. I like Avatar, but to the breath of everyone who doesn't like double/tripple/quadruple dipping, what is the point?

It's beyond me how some people flip out if they don't get 15 minutes of extra footage deemed too boring for theaters. Personally, there's no way I'll hold out on buying what I consider the definitive reference quality 3D Blu-ray given that it's only $28! When the extended edition comes out, I may or may not buy that too.

My only gripe is that it wasn't released sooner!

I did hold on for the extended edition of LOTR Blu-Ray, for example. But for this, the movie is long enough. Does the extended edition really add that much more? The story wasn't that fantastic either. It is the 3D that got to me (and so many other movie viewers). I will be buying this finally now that Panasonic 3D has died down somewhat.

I like the extended edition of Avatar but it really didn't add much more to the story of Pandora. The original version was just fine and a must own in 3D. Also, the time listed for the blu ray 3D is 178 minutes (which is the extended edition) so don't know if that is a typo or maybe this is the special edition. This will be the biggest selling 3D blu ray of all time!

Hate to tell you all, but all of you 3D haters and those complaining about nobody will want this cause it's not extended edition are in the minority. Me including a lot of other people have been waiting and wanting Avatar on Blu-Ray 3D for years, those who don't have a 3D tv yet are already probably making their plans to buy one for this. As the already rapid success with this being the number 6 selling Blu-Ray right now, within the first day of this news already proves.

I was a serious 3D freak back when I was a teenager, and it was Avatar that got me interested in 3D all over again. I bought my 3DTV specifically to watch Avatar in 3D, so I will double-dip or triple-dip (or even sextuple-dip, if necessary) to have every version of Avatar in 3D. BTW, I've already seen a few minutes of Avatar in 3D on my 3DTV, thanks to the hidden features on disc 3 of the 2D collector's edition (which I learned about on this very website).

I will also buy Cameron's earlier 3D film, Ghosts of the Abyss, when it is released on September 11. The latest indications are that both versions of that film will be included on the 3D Blu-ray.

I wanna take a fucking dump on this. If it wasn't shit already. But hey, the Nth dipping for whatever fan. So why not add more crap to this turd?
I'm happy I'm not a fan at all of this movie, which was a total hype. It's so fucked up that the movie industry cares a LOT more about fucking dough than the moviegoers. For example we have the endless wait for the Ultimate Editions of Harry Potter. Instead they milk that franchise as well. But it doesn't make it right to do so even if those movies are a gazillion times better than this p.o.s. They think us human beings are made of money, to charge $350/200 for some "Wizards collection", and then they have the nerve to accuse people of piracy if you "borrow" a movie for a little while? Anyway. Those who are megadipping on this movie are probably paying lots of money as well, which was my point. There are many examples of this nowadays. It was lots better before! (Excluding Star Wars...)

I'll get it. I'm fine with the theatrical version, the one that's in the record books. Adding extra scenes is their way of making more money on the same film. Plus I'm not a fan of three hour or longer movies and Avatar, theatrical version is plenty long enough for me. After watching long movies, you have no desire to seen it again anytime soon because they take up so much time. But that is the best cover art I've seen for Avatar.

Got a TV about 4 months ago - went with LG Passive 3D tech - it's much better than Shutter Glasses IMO - no flicker!!

Will be day 1 purchase for me!!

BTW - Mr.Twinks - My house isn't anywhere near big enough for a 100" projection setup!

@ The Bluray King, The epson is a fine choice of Pj especially for bright 3D viewing. I wish I had the room and funds to do a 120"setup! Either way you will have a nice experience!

@MCurtis, my house isn't that big, plus I finally own a home with a basement. I almost (back in 2010) bought a VT series 60" 3D panny plasma. Luckily the service was crap at the brick and mortar store so I saved my money for a while. I like the new LG's though. Picture is great and the prices are getting more 'affordable'. Also guys, I researched and read a lot of threads on avsforums. Those guys know their stuff and some of their HT blows my modest setup away! It is pretty awesome what some of these guys can do. October is going to be a good month of watching some great blu-ray titles! Edit: Also I did not mean to put down people that bought 3D tv's in my past posts, what I meant to say was that people that are on the fence about owning a 3D tv should consider other options out there like a front PJ set up.

I got the pany bundle Avatar 3D so I think I can wait for the enivitable extended cut release in 3D. Unless for some reason this is a different transfer than the bundle pack but already owning the UK steelbook, the collectors edition, and the 3D copy I think Im covered for awhile. Besides my dipping fingers are kinda sore!

So, everyone is complaining about the release not having the Extended Cut. Yep, because we ALL just HAVE to see a 2 and a half hour long movie turn into a 3 hour movie. The Blu-ray 3D release is a definite pickup for me. I've been waiting so long...

Hopefully with all these negative responses to this 3D release of the theatrical version, maybe someone is taking note of this and will include the extended version in the package! Last minute changes have happened before like with the last movie of the Harry Potter series. Originally it was going to be released as 2D only. Then 2 weeks prior to release we were informed that it will get a 3D release and then, to our surprise, the company also decided to make a 3D version of the Deathly Hallows Part 1 which was never in 3D!! So cross your fingers!!! We just might get what we are asking for!!

I don't know why people are reacting negatively to the theatrical release being on here. For one thing that means it will be a better quality release. For another, the theatrical version is much more impressive than the extended. I'm about the biggest James Cameron and Avatar fan you'll find and I much prefer the theatrical release. The flow and especially the cuts emphasizing symbolism and general feel for the movie are much better in the theatrical release.

In any case, I'll be adding this to my collection, because it's Avatar and I have to count on 2 hands the number of different copies of the movie I have ...and I don't even have a 3D TV. Luckily it comes with the 2D version as well.
