AVATAR: SPECIAL EDITION - An IMAX 3D Experience®

This enhanced release will feature approximately nine additional minutes of never-before-seen footage and takes us to a spectacular world beyond imagination, where a reluctant hero embarks on an epic adventure, ultimately fighting to save the alien world he has learned to call home. James Cameron, the Oscar-winning director of “Titanic,” first conceived the film 15 years ago, when the means to realize his vision did not exist yet. Four years in production, AVATAR 3D, a live action film with a new generation of special effects, delivers a fully immersive cinematic experience of a new kind, where the revolutionary technology invented to make the film disappears into the emotion of the characters and the sweep of the story. AVATAR 3D is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox. This film is rated PG-13. Twentieth Century Fox presents a James Cameron Film, AVATAR 3D, starring Sam Worthington, Zoë Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver. The film is written and directed by James Cameron and produced by James Cameron and Jon Landau.
