Avatar Re-Release Poster

Some of you have been asking whether the film will be screening near you, as there doesn't seem to be a lot of information about how "limited" the limited release is. Well, fear not, loyal readers, we've got a list of theaters that will be playing the new cut of Cameron's masterpiece!

Check out the full press release from 20th Century Fox after the jump, and feel free to a look at our Avatar trailers section while you count the minutes until you'll be able to see Cameron's baby on the big screen again!

Following the record-breaking IMAX(R) 3D release of the highest grossing movie of all-time, IMAX Corporation and Twentieth Century Fox today announced that Avatar: Special Edition will open in 175 IMAX(R) theatres worldwide - 125 domestic and 50 international locations - on August 27, 2010, simultaneously with the motion picture's re-release in conventional theatres. This enhanced release will feature approximately nine additional minutes of never-before-seen footage and offers fans the opportunity to see it in IMAX theatres for a limited time only. Avatar has been digitally re-mastered into the unparalleled image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience(R).

Avatar 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, Avatar marks Cameron's return to feature directing since helming 1997's Titanic, the highest grossing film of all time and winner of eleven Oscars(R) including Best Picture. WETA Digital, renowned for its work in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and King Kong, incorporates new intuitive CGI technologies to transform the environments and characters into photorealistic 3D imagery that will transport the audience into the alien world rich with imaginative vistas, creatures and characters.
