about the movie
“AVATAR Special Edition: An IMAX 3D Experience”
Rated: PG-13. Running Time: 2 hours and 50 minutes.
Starts: October 26, 2013*. Ends: January 26, 2014.

James Cameron’s “AVATAR Special Edition: An IMAX 3D Experience” is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar (a human mind in an alien body), he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people. More than ten years in the making, the film marked Cameron's return to feature filmmaking since helming 1997's “TITANIC.” WETA Digital, renowned for its work in “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy and “King Kong,” incorporated new intuitive CGI technologies to transform the environments and characters into photorealistic 3D imagery that transports the audience into the alien world rich with imaginative vistas, creatures and characters. The stellar cast includes Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, and Sigourney Weaver.
