‘Avatar’ Blu-ray, DVD due April 22

Fox to release sci-fi pic in 2D; no 3D release date yet

NEW YORK (AP) — “Avatar” is coming to DVD, but not yet in 3D.

Twentieth Century Fox announced Tuesday that James Cameron’s sci-fi epic will be released on Blu-ray and regular DVD on April 22. The studio noted that the release date coincides with the 40th anniversary of Earth Day.

No announcement was made regarding a 3D DVD release, but a Fox spokesman said one can be expected in the future. The market for 3-D home video is still in the nascent stages, though TVs equipped for 3D are increasingly being produced.

The DVDs won’t include special features. Producer Jon Landau said in a statement that the lack of extras was done to improve picture and sound quality.

The announcement comes while “Avatar,” which won three Oscars, remains in the top-10 at the box office. It has earned more than $730 million domestically.
