Since the film made over 2 billion, it should come to no surprise that the studio would want to rush the film to Blu-Ray to capitalize on it popularity. Unfortunately, rushing a film in anyway is a bad idea. When studios do that they give poor released that have literally no special features what-so-ever.
Now, “Avatar” is gonna go through that very same thing. In an interview director, James Cameron, spilled the news that his latest film will be released on April 22, but not in 3-D and as a bare bones release.

“It’s all right on schedule,” said Cameron. “We’ll do the Blu-ray and the standard def DVD April 22nd, that’s our plan as of right now, and that’ll be pretty much bare bones. And then we’ll do a value-added DVD and a 3D Blu-ray in I think November sometime.”
A spokers person for 2oth Century Fox denies any release in November, “3D is in the conceptual stage and Avatar will not be out on 3D Blu-ray in November.”
To be honest I don’t give a damn about 3-D. I will most likely purchasing this release, but I’m not happy about it. I usually don’t have time to bother watching the special features, but some of the behind-the-scenes footage I’ve seen looked very interesting. Unfortunately, I would have to wait probably til next year to get a quality release.
However, I’m not surprised that its happening this way. I mean, the 3-D tech is one of the main reasons the film made as much as it did in the first place. So, it would make sense for them to perfect the 3-D TVs first.
