"Avatar" Coming to Disc in April, But Not in 3D
The film that ushered in the 3D blockbuster revolution in theaters last year is coming out on DVD and Blu-ray- but not in a 3D-ready version. At least, not yet.
James Cameron's "Avatar," the futuristic sci-fi thriller that has become the highest-grossing film of all time, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray April 22 by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Even as major manufacturers begin rolling out their first 3D TVs and home theater products this month "Avatar," which has wowed audiences in 3D for the past three months, will only be available in 2D on its first release.
Fox sources told the Los Angeles Times that a 3D home edition of the film will be released in the future, although not this year.
