New Details on BD/DVD special edition and Avatar 2
 
Latest MTV interview with JC about new BD/dvd special edition and more information regarding Avatar 2


Quote:

"We're doing a longer version for the DVD that is 16 to 17 minutes longer," he said, "but you'll have the choice: You can watch [the nine-minutes-longer version] or you can watch the original if you want to."

With the mega-blockbuster's re-release approaching, details about the next two films have started to trickle out via the maestro himself, specifically Cameron's hints that the second film will involve the oceans of Pandora. Given his water-related filmmaking experience (see "Titanic" and "The Abyss"), as well as his fondness for diving as a hobby, MTV News recently asked Cameron if he'll shoot sequences underwater.
Quote:

"I think what we should do there is — because we'll have to have characters that are in and under the water — is that we should actually capture them underwater," Cameron explained. "It's not the same as going diving, but I like to keep my diving, which I do for pleasure, separate from work."
Quote:

He added that diving for work is not as much fun. "Diving for shooting a movie is work," he said. "Diving for exploration is a gas. I like to keep my peas and carrots separate."
Even more avatar (that means more Neytiri :D <3 ) i so can't wait for this ........ Need MOAR :P

I'm confused, so we get the choice of the soon to be released extended version (+9 min) or the version that we have now. Where would the extra 7-8 minutes go if the extended BD/DVD is 16-17 minutes longer? Unless I misread something...

And the sequels :)

So he's most likely going to shoot the sequels back to back, with at least one having motion capture performed underwater. The budget for this will make the first film look very inexpensive in comparison :P:D

But it sounds like one hell of an undertaking, and he's the guy that can could do it :)

16 to 17 minutes...
What's all the buzz about 6 hours then...

nickl630 08-14-2010 05:40 PM

The 6 hours was the initial table read, I don't know why everyone thinks it was 6 hours of footage.

And I guess they decided to omit the 40+ mins of un-finished footage, probably for the best I guess. Any idea when its coming out?

Raiden 08-14-2010 06:14 PM

Grrrrrr....

What ever happened to the 45 minutes of extra stuff?

I supppose if it's really unfinished I can understand it, but still.....

Raptor 08-14-2010 06:29 PM

There's absolutely no way that the original cut is 6 hours. I remember they only shot 45 more minutes than the final release version. In any case, I really hope they don't release too many versions because I don't want to go broke. :P

The whole six hours thing is where Sam said in an interview was the first version he watched or something, it could of had different versions of different sequences or something.

Woodsprite 08-14-2010 07:19 PM

Thing is, Cameron said "DVD version" when he mentioned the 16-17 extra minutes... But he never said anything about the Blu-Ray. Should we just assume he meant both? Or was he really just talking about DVDs only?

Do we know when this next dvd/blu-ray release will be? I wish it was more like the 30-45extra minutes they originaly stated, but hey, i'm happy with anything.

HarryCanyon 08-14-2010 09:40 PM

Hopefully in december in time for christmas maybe i'll buy it as an after-christmas gift and sell the bareboned Blu-Ray i own.

The special edition dvd/blu-ray should be released sometime in November.

16-17 moar minutes on the DVD and BD? Well, that's how people make money. They're taking advantage of us. First there's a normal version, then a special edition (and all fans want to have these additional minutes on DVD/BD no matter what), maybe in 2011 there will be even 30 minutes more? :( It's always all about money... :(

But on the other hand - additional 16-17 miutes? WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! :D:P
