We are a little over a week out for Avatar Day and it's now time to start looking for ways to get tickets. The LA Times have posted a quick update on the matter, we are told that we have even more reason to make it to IMAX on August 21st.
Avatar Day Tickets
According to LA Times, additional footage that was not shown at Comic Con will be included with the screening. Woohoo!
On Monday, 20th Century Fox will launch an unusual offer on the website for its Cameron-directed film "Avatar": free tickets for an early look at 16 minutes of footage from the futuristic thriller that will be shown in more than 100 Imax 3-D theaters around the world.
With two screenings on Friday, Aug. 21 (at 6 and 6:30 p.m.), the "Avatar" preview will include an introduction from Cameron and some new footage not shown during July's Comic-Con International convention in San Diego.
Advance screenings of movie footage for the press and at events such as Comic-Con are fairly common for big-budget Hollywood releases. But it's unprecedented for a studio to show an extended excerpt of a film in such a broad public setting months before it hits theaters.
Now here is the real important part:
In what’s sure to be a mad grab among sci-fi fans, tickets will be given away a first-come, first-served basis on the Avatar website (www.avatarmovie.com) at noon PST Monday.
