Starting next Tuesday, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Lightstorm Entertainment will be selling a special edition of blockbuster movie AVATAR with nifty behind-the-scenes features and content exclusively on iTunes, in standard definition, for $14.99 (or $19.99 for the HD version).
Available for pre-order now, the special digital edition of the movie lets people ‘deconstruct scenes’ in simultaneous views to, basically, see how director James Cameron applied special effects throughout the science-fiction flick while you’re watching.
From the press release:
“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.”
Check out the video below to check out what it, well, looks like.
“AVATAR iTunes Extras Special Edition” also includes an original screenplay by Cameron, his ‘scriptment’ (a novella with some scenes broken out into dialogue) and a gallery of 1,700 images.
AVATAR is the highest-grossing film of all time, generating nearly $2.8 billion in worldwide box office.
