Unsurprisingly, "Avatar" will released in Blu-ray 3D. And the film's 33 million Facebook fans were the first to know. The 2-disc collector's edition of the James Cameron behemoth will be available October 16 and promises "a home entertainment experience like no other." Cameron states that "3-D television is the future of home entertainment,” adding that he is "a huge proponent of the technology and very pleased that 'Avatar' can be viewed in the living room the way it is meant to be seen.”
"Avatar" is already the top-selling Blu-ray disc of all time, and this new 3-D version, previously only available through an exclusive deal with Panasonic, is now getting a wide release to accommodate the growing number of homes with 3-D televisions.
For those that are not fans of 3-D in the theater or the home, you can at least revel in "Avatar"'s ability to continue making money on top of its initial world wide box office gross of $2.78 billion.
