That's awesome news.

This has been great information regarding which machines Avatar 3D will play on, but my questions is where do you buy it? Is it not available unless you buy a Panasonic player?

Your choices are to either wait for this title to come off the Panasonic exclusive list (February 2012) or go to eBay and generally expect to pay north of $70.

I just bought Avatar 3D Blu-Ray on eBay (for a mere $80 ouch) and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's an incredible movie and adds greatly to my ever-expanding 3D collection.
My LG being passive 3D did not detract from the experience at all, in fact I used for the first time some passive 3D clip-on glasses I also found on eBay from Germany. For anyone like myself who already wears glasses that is a great find and beats the ones that LG provides. Anyone who would like similar clip-ons make sure they are Cinema3D ones. I got them from THIS person.
You can get them at my local Best Buy but at the time they were out of stock.

I thought the rights ran out in Februray of 2012 but I don't see a preorder up yet on Amazon.
post #97 of 119
Well it's not February yet and the last I heard from the buzz on the web was a March release at the earliest.
Let's hope it's the extended cut. Thanks to eBay I have the Panasonic promo version at the moment and it is pretty impressive I must admit, which makes up for the predictable story line.
However, my TV does a pretty good job with the original using 2D-3D conversion too.

Well, it's February NOW! I am really hoping we hear some good news soon.

It is mid-March now...i guess Titanic is dominating the world of Cameron and his upcoming deep deep dive........

3D fans are definitely becoming impatient waiting for this release, and understandably so!

My copy came with a blu-ray player purchase and it's the best 3D movie that I own. I'm beginning to be impatient waiting for it to be released in an "extended 3D" version. Hope everyone gets what they want soon.

Thanks for the review, Ralph, even if it has been posted for a while...
post #101 of 119
Looking forward to enjoy the 3D version once I decide on my new 3D HDTV
post #102 of 119
It's late April now. Where's the 3D version? (No, I'm not gonna buy on ebay)
post #103 of 119
Panasonic are still offering it as a freebie with certain packages, so I assume they still have a stranglehold on the release.
post #104 of 119
I managed to get a copy of this bluray and saw it on my HMZ-T1 and all I can say is...holy ****.... Best 3D I've seen so far in my hmz? Excellent review I agree with it completely
post #105 of 119
I see a few on eBay. Sounds like a great disc to show off the 3D. Time to bid...
post #106 of 119
It is really good I can guarantee that. ;-)
post #107 of 119
My Samsung 60" es8000 arrives Saturday so I better get crack'n and buy a 3d player (with this included from Panny???) or order it from somewhere!! Love the bluray so I guess i'll have to exercise some patience....
post #108 of 119
It's still seemingly the property of Panny as no public release yet.

Or else James Cameron is still working on getting the extended cut processed for 3D as the Panny one was the original theatre cut.

I went to a theater 2X to see Avatar. The second time was to make sure that I didn't like it. The poor writing and resulting dialogue is so bad that it makes me cringe. I couldn't get past the dialogue.

It's official now!!

Avatar 3D is finally going to be released on October 16, 2012, to video stores.

See link: http://www.blu-ray.com/news/?id=9309
post #111 of 119
An extended edition according to http://www.avatarmovie.com/

Darn it, that means I'll have to buy yet another copy....;-)
post #112 of 119
Finally! At this point, I can wait another year and find it in the bargain bin.
post #113 of 119
On reading up further about it, the 3D versions is the same cut as the Panasonic Freebie one which I already have from an eBay purchase, so I wont be going for this one, extras aside. The extended cut may appear in 3D later on. Probably by then the sequel will be well on its way anyway.

Really?! I'm expecting for so long. rolleyes.gif
post #115 of 119
OK so I've got a copy of the 3D Blu Ray from Best Buy...

Playback:

DIY HTPC (Core 5 i5 2500K, Nvidia 550GT, Creative X-Fi Titanium)
Cyberlink PowerDVD 12
Crown XTi Amps & DIY speakers - flat from 20-20,000hz
Vizio Razor 55" 3D TV (2012 model)

First things first... it's a Fox release so it's nice to see it load up with no issues, but I'm guessing the updates prompted by Prometheus took care of that.

Loading was unusually quick for a Blu-ray. Playback initiated immediately and looked/sounded great. I know this is the same version that has already been reviewed, and Panasonic made a good move when they bought those exclusive rights because Avatar is a great 3D presentation. Especially exciting to me is that the dynamic range of both the visuals and the sound exceed what I experienced with Imax when I saw it on its premier night. I'm a professional photographer and Avatar blew me away with the range of colors and the quality of the visuals... at home it blew me away even more. I'm going to check it out again this weekend with reference level sound and a proper viewing 'session' but this is not the time or place to discuss. I just wanted to report that the new commericially available version I bought from Best Buy is a great disc that operates perfectly and that Avatar looks better than ever.

Pity the extended cut wasn't released in 3D though. Still, it's an incredible movie though.
post #117 of 119
I bit. $24.00 isn't too shabby for this 3D release. Glad that it's been a real long time since first seeing it.
post #118 of 119
Ralph, your review is dead on. I always thought that but could not get the movie in 3d until a few days ago. I could watch this movie all day in 2d or 3d.
