New details have emerged regarding the DVD and Blu-Ray release of James Cameron's Avatar which reveal many of the special features included in the film's home release.
Avatar, the most financially lucrative and critically quizzical film to hit theaters over the past few years, is aiming to break a few more records with it's upcoming home release. Fans of the property, who have helped it gross over $2 billion worldwide, have been anxiously awaiting any and all details about the film's Special Edition Blu-Ray & DVD. Over the past several weeks, some of these special features have been identified; including 16 minutes of added footage as well as the restored Earth opening scene.
"Two minutes of test footage from James Cameron's aborted adaptation of Patricia Anthony's novel Brother Termite will be included as an extra feature. A satirical story about extraterrestrials who work in the highest level of government, the film had a script by John Sayles and Cameron began initial work on the project in 2002. For whatever reason it fell apart (our guess? budget) but its significant because at the time Cameron was already experimenting with performance capture technology that he would later use to blue people's minds in Avatar."
Never before seen footage of the film. Running time of 68 minutes, 4 seconds. Includes the brief tutorial USER'S GUIDE FOR VIEWING AVATAR SCENES WITH UNFINISHED SHOTS.
