Cameron explains reasons for Avatar release. It's really for the best...
For Blogomatic 3000 - http://www.blogomatic3000.com/2010/08/24/james-cameron-explains-why-an-avatar-re-release-is-necessary/
After my rant on why it wasn’t necessary for Avatar to be re-released into the cinemas later this month, I have now read a few quotes from James Cameron on IMDB.com where he states his reasons for the extra release.
He explains millions of people didn’t have the chance to see this film in 3D due to limited cinemas with the capability of showing 3D, so this is a chance for those viewers to watch the spectacle in “eye popping 3D” again. We’re also seeing a new scene which was taken out controversially by Cameron, so that will be extremely exciting for the die hard fans of this film.
He also talks about the 3D DVD release next year to “keep audiences interested”. Looks like Avatar is going to be sticking around for a long time whether we like it or not… Maybe Asylum Productions are going to make a sequel like Titanic 2. That would be something for sore eyes! Cameron stated that the 2nd film wouldn’t be coming out until around 2014, so the welcome arrival of a poor production may just be what the obsessive viewers need to keep them living in the Pandora world.
I still think it’s unnecessary. Yes, it is another chance for viewers to go and see this film again, but you could re-release any film for the chance of those who didn’t get to see it the first time to have another go at watching the film on the big screen. And to keep audiences interested? If they’re true fans they wouldn’t need this extended amount of sales pitching to keep them keen.
