Sorry, DVD version of Avatar won't contain any 3-D effects from the theaters.Sorry, DVD version of Avatar won't contain any 3-D effects from the theaters.

FOX would like you to keep going to the theaters to get the full experience of Avatar rather than have it recreated poorly in your living room. Also, Rupert Murdoch would really like to see a sequel.

In a previous post I doubted that Avatar would reach legendary numbers. Well, allow me to now eat my words. Amazingly enough, I still haven't seen this on the big screen yet. I'm still hearing mixed reviews from pals and fellow geeks.

Avatar flick still doing pretty well for James Cameron and company.Avatar flick still doing pretty well for James Cameron and company.

The film has raked in a whopping $232 billion thus far. Source website seems to think that Avatar is well on it's way to reaching the likes of Star Wars ($460.9 million) and maybe even Cameron's own Titantic ($1.8 billion). Not sure how you can equate $232 million to $1.8 billion that quickly though.
