Home Video Report: Expanded Avatar Comes To DVD

Avatar-movie DL

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It’s a banner week for home video, highlighted by new (but certainly not the last) editions of James Cameron’s science-fiction epic, Avatar.

There are three versions of the film including the original theatre release, a “special edition” re-release, and a new “collector’s extended cut” that includes eight hours of never-before-seen material with over 45 minutes of deleted scenes.

This comes with a “family” version of the audio track in the event viewers might want to block objectionable language.  Blu-ray has its own version allowing viewers to delve into the production process.

There’s also a release of the popular movie The Kids Are All Right, the lesbian family drama co-starring Annette Bening and Julianne Moore.

Then, from 1936, Charlie Chaplin’s final outing as the little tramp gets a high-definition treatment in Modern Times, also on Blu-ray.

And, from 1955, another high-definition digital transfer: The Night Of The Hunter, the only film the great actor Charles Laughton ever directed.  Robert Mitchum and Shelly Winters are featured.
