'Avatar' Returning to iTunes Store with Scene Deconstruction and Green Screen X-Ray Extras
Twentieth Century Fox today announced the upcoming debut of an exclusive iTunes Extras special edition version of the film Avatar, bringing several new interactive features including the ability to deconstruct scenes to see how they were made and a "Green Screen X-ray" that allows users to easily see the original green screen footage behind certain scenes.
Fans can experience the global box office sensation like never before as they control scene deconstructions in simultaneous views. This new feature will also enable consumers to interact with the performance capture and visual effects levels in 17 of the film’s scenes. For the first time ever, Green Screen X-ray gives users an interactive look through the visual effects levels to see the original green screen footage behind a pivotal scene.
Other extras include screenplay content from James Cameron and a gallery of over 1,700 images related to the film.
Avatar [iTunes Store] is available for pre-order now and will debut on December 20th. Pricing is set at $19.99 for the HD version and $14.99 for standard definition.
A basic version of Avatar was available in the iTunes Store for several months last year, but was pulled from iTunes and other digital marketplaces as an extended collector's edition of the film debuted on Blu-ray and DVD in November 2010.
