Avatar finally on Blu-ray 3D for everyone
In today's economy, it's not enough to convince customers to buy products because they are good. It's also necessary to play them or at least trick them into spending their hard-earned money. But before we lose ourselves in "back in the day, everything was better"-nostalgia, we just point to the fact that the Blu-ray 3D of Avatar, the most successful 3D movie of all time, was only exclusively available in combination with Panasonic TVs and not in regular retail until now. Of course, not every customers of Panasonic liked the film and some of them put their Blu-ray 3D on ebay, giving some fans the possibility to get it earlier.
On october 16th, 2012, Avatar 3D will be released officially in retail. The UK get it one day earlier.
However, there's still something to complain about. Only the theatrical version, running 162 minutes, will be available in 3D. Not the special edition, which was also shown in 3D in cinemas. A comparison between both versions can be found here. And then there was the Blu-ray-exclusive Extended Edition. That also is not available in 3D (comparison).
It can be assumed that, at least when the sequel hits cinemas in a few years, another 3D edition comes out and has the Special Edition as 3D on board. As a motivator to buy the film once again.
