Avatar on Blu-ray and DVD April 22

If you missed seeing Avatar at the movie theatre, you are in luck for the movie is being released on blu-ray and DVD next Thursday, April 22nd.  However, there is a little complication.

There will be THREE releases of Avatar.

The first release, available next week, is going to be WITHOUT any features. A 'superbit' release, this is a movie that is released without any features so that the movie on the disc can be featured in the highest quality audio and visual presentation possible. (Extras take up space on the disc.)

The second release will be the multiple disc Ultimate Edition in November and that release will have the features that we have come to expect on our movie discs.

Finally, the third release will probably be next year, when they hope to have the 3D version available and to have a larger number of viewers buying 3D movies.

That leaves you with one big question. To buy now or to wait and buy later?

There is no question in my mind that the movie is worth buying and that it will be wonderful on blu-ray so I guess it boils down to a) whether or not you have already seen the movie and b) how important the special features are to you...

See you
at the movies!
