If you were one of the “hundreds of thousands, if not millions of people” who, according to James Cameron, wanted to see Avatar in 3-D but didn’t get a chance to because there were other movies made in 2009, rest easy. The Avatar architect is bringing Pandora back in a special edition with nine minutes of extra footage. The movie has already become the highest grossing film of all time, pulling in a whopping $2.7 billion for 20th Century Fox, but the studio says it has been “inundated with requests to re-release the film in theatres in 3-D” since its big-screen run ended last March, according to the Globe. Avatar: Special Edition opens this Friday, and if you miss it again, Cameron insists there will be a sequel.
