    'Avatar' in stores Earth Day

    "Avatar" will hit stores on April 22, and instead of a disc loaded with extras, it will be just the opposite -- a lean-and-mean approach with only the movie and a relatively simple menu function, a move made to exploit every bit of disc space for the top-of-the-line audio and video presentation of the film, according to the movie's producer, Jon Landau.

    In fact, according to sources at Fox, "Avatar" will make history as the first Blu-ray new release from a major studio to hit stores without a single trailer or promotional content of any kind.

    Dang, that's like a month away!!!

    I'm stoked to see it again and I'm sure it will look great on Blu Ray.

    Re: 'Avatar' in stores Earth Day

    This will be a bare bones release, with the special edition coming in November, so if you really want the special features you'll have to wait, or buy it twice.

    I heard it might be coming back to theaters in late summer as well. That would make sense, as they apparently lost a lot of money because Alice in Wonderland took away most of the 3D screens. Who would have thought three months of exclusive access to 3D screens wouldnt' be enough?

    A 3D version of the pic is expected to be released for home-entertainment sometime next year.

    Yeah, I'll most likely just rent it and then get the deluxe edition in November.

    I will avoid this by watching OCEANS in the theaters.

    Same here, gonna spend my money on Oceans instead.

    Avatar will be worth picking up when I get a 3D TV down the road sometime, but with my current job situation, that may well be 20 years .
