Yes it’s true, the James Cameron’s masterpiece that is Avatar is hitting our cinema screens yet again!

Avatar Special EditionThis time Avatar has been released as a Special Edition with eight minutes of extra footage and also some new creatures have been introduced to the movie and hits the big 3D screens on August 27th.

James Cameron is no stranger to the Special Edition genre, remember Aliens, The Abyss and Terminator 2. But those films were released with their Special Editions on DVD, this time we get the Special Edition in the cinema and yes, still in its 3D glory, actually it’s exclusively in 3D sorry 2D only cinemas, looks like you’ll have to miss out on this one.

The question on everyone’s lips though, is even if the film does have that extra 8 minutes of footage and we do get to see that little bit more of Pandora, is it worth the money to spend 170 minutes on some cinema seats to see the majority of a film that you have already seen?

For those that haven’t seen the original cut of the film yet in 3D the answer is probably, yes. To those that have already seen the film, maybe no, but to the fans of the movie, such as myself the answer is a 100%, yes!

I do like Avatar, my God, I’ve seen it that many times and all in 3D and the chance to see a little more of Pandora and perhaps the hope of opening up the characters a tad more with 8 minutes of extra footage, does intrigue me, plus the fact that my local cinema @ScalaPrestatyn will be showing the Special Edition just entices me more to see it again.

So if you have seen Avatar 3D already, will you go and see Avatar: Special Edition?

And just to whet your appetite a bit more I’m leaving you with the trailer for the Special Edition, it’s short, but enjoy 😉
