James Cameron Already Forcing Avatar Fanboys Back Into the Theater

George Lucas waited two decades before forcing helpless Star Wars fanboys back into the theaters with digitally remastered, all-new-pointless-scene-having rereleases. James Cameron, ever the maverick, is only waiting a couple of months: On August 27, Avatar: Special Edition will hit 3-D theaters with only eight! whole! minutes! of new material. In a statement, Cameron said, "Audiences repeatedly told me they wanted more of Pandora, and wished they could have stayed there longer. So we're making that possible. 'Avatar: Special Edition' will be exclusively in 3D, and will have eight minutes of never before seen footage, including new creatures and action scenes. Whether you already love the movie, or you've never seen it, with this special edition, you'll be seeing it like never before." Hear that, world? Whether you've already given James Cameron some of your money or have yet to do so, Avatar: Special Edition is for you!
