AVATAR getting a re-release this summer with new footage?

AVATAR dominated the winter box office and it might be making some nice coin this summer as well. How? Well, James Cameron and Fox are currently talking about the possibility of re-releasing the massive/gigantic/colossal hit AVATAR in primarily 3D theaters late this summer. The bait for the movie-goer being that the film would contain previously unseen footage.

This new cut of AVATAR will have scenes that did not make into the film in order to make sure AVATAR would be done by its release date of December 18th. So what how much are we looking at in regards to this footage? Well the source article in Heat Vision points out "Cameron had said that he had 10-12 minutes worth of extra scenes that he cut and could quickly put through postproduction and have ready to add to a director’s cut for a theatrical reissue or as an extra on the home video release".

With AVATAR being the highest grossest film ever, it is hard to image a new version of the film with extra footage not attracting a sizable audience, even if it is only ten minutes (which it couldn't be more than if wanted to play IMAX, as the longest an IMAX film can be is 170 minutes, and AVATAR is currently 160 minutes). And it is also hard to image Fox and Cameron not wanting to do everything possible to get even more money from this already extremely profitable venture. Do not be surprised if we get a re-release of AVATAR this summer.
