Avatar returning to theatres because “millions of people” missed it the first time

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.
