Avatar Blu-Ray 3-D Coming to Stores in October


Twentieth Century Fox announced Avatar will be available on Blu-ray 3-D beginning around the world on Oct. 15 and in the USA on Oct. 16. Cameron's $2.7 billion global blockbuster was previously only available on Blu-ray 3D with purchase of Panasonic Blu-ray players.

“3-D television is the future of home entertainment,” Cameron said. "I'm a huge proponent of the technology and very pleased that Avatar can be viewed in the living room the way it is meant to be seen."

Cameron, who has said he's in the Avatar business, is busy prepping sequels to Avatar which might finally arrive in theaters around 2015.

Cameron's 3-D re-release of Titanic will become the first film in decades to screen in Myanmar. The 3-D version of Titanic has pushed the film's global tally to over $2.1 billion since release earlier this year.

The Simple Carnival - Tornado 3-D Videos Will Eventually Be Available on Blu-Ray 3-D


Jeff Boller is the primary musician behind The Simple Carnival, a Pittsburgh-based power pop band. The Simple Carnival's next album won't be an album at all, but a 40-minute animated music video movie called Smitten 3-D. It will be released as a 3-D Blu-ray. It'll be just like listening to an album from beginning to end, except there will be a 3-D music video that accompanies each song.

Smitten 3-D is currently a work in progress, but some of the videos are online while the band is working on other videos. Check out their latest 3-D video for a song called Tornado. It was made solely with black construction paper, a pen knife and painted backgrounds.

More information about The Simple Carnival Smitten 3-D project is available here.
