Fox to release ‘Avatar: Special Edition’

Version to go into theaters worldwide Aug. 27

Twentieth Century Fox is to release “Avatar: Special Edition” in theaters worldwide on Aug. 27 in a limited engagement and exclusively in Digital 3D and Imax 3D, the studio announced Thursday. The version will include more than eight minutes of extra footage including new creatures and action scenes.

“Audiences repeatedly told me they wanted more of Pandora and wished they could have stayed there longer. So we’re making that possible,” helmer James Cameron said. A bare bones edition of the Blu-ray and DVD bowed April 22, with more feature-laden editions likely due later in the year.
