Panasonic "Avatar" Exclusive Runs Through 2012
Panasonic's exclusive deal to bundle the "Avatar" 3D Blu-ray disc with its 3D home theater systems runs through early 2012, according to a report Tuesday.
The company confirmed to the blog AVZombie that Panasonic's global exclusivity on the 3D Blu-ray sales of the movie will continue through February of 2012, precluding a retail release of the disc next year.
James Cameron's film, released a year ago, became the highest-grossing movie of all time. It remains available on DVD and standard Blu-ray disc, and has been airing on HBO.
