Avatar Blu-ray Goes Flat!

You are likely one of the many who helped push Avatar into the record books, grossing more than $2.6 billion worldwide (and still counting!) So you may be anxiously awaiting the release of the high definition Blu-ray version of the movie so you can enjoy it all over again at home. (It will also be released on DVD, but who wants to watch a low-res version of this blockbuster epic?)

The news is that you’ll only have to wait until April 22 to get your hands on Avatar on disc. There’s just one catch; it won’t be in stereoscopic 3D. According to reports, the release will only be in 2D versions, as the installed base of 3D-capable Blu-ray players and HDTVs is still too small to make it worth launching the product. It’s inevitable that you’ll be able to get a 3D version eventually, but you’ll have to wait a while before you’ll be able to reach out and try to touch those little floating creatures in your own living room.
