Last month, we politely made fun of James Cameron for rereleasing Avatar in theaters with a measly eight new minutes of footage as if that justified making helpless fanboys give him more of their money. Now we take it all back. Why? Because within those eight minutes, there will be twenty seconds of transcendence. That’s right: The Na’vi sex scene is hitting the big screen. MTV reports:
“You mean the alien kink scene?” [Cameron] joked. “It’s been restored, every last frame of it. Seriously,” he said, adding that the scene in question won’t break any records — it lasts all of about 20 seconds. “I would say, just so that we correctly manage people’s expectations,” he explained carefully, “it does not change our rating at all. I would call it more of an alien foreplay scene. It’s not like they’re ripping their clothes off and going at it.”
Cameron also talked up the Avatar sequels, explaining the actors will be motion-captured underwater, and the Avatar DVD, which will feature sixteen to seventeen minutes of add and you’re still thinking about Na’vi sex, aren’t you?
