Washington, Dec 13 : The release of filmmaker James Cameron's long-anticipated 3-D sci-fi action film 'Avatar' has been postponed again, to Dec. 18, 2009.
The release of filmmaker James Cameron's long-anticipated 3-D sci-fi action film 'Avatar' has been postponed again, to Dec. 18, 2009.

On 12 Dec, 20th Century Fox declared that it had delayed the release of the film, which was previously slated to release on May 22, 2009.

The reason behind the delay is to allow more time to complete what are expected to be some of the most elaborate 3-D special effects ever conceived.

The studio also claims that a Christmas release could benefit the Oscar-winning director's film because it's expected there will be more than 4,000 3-D screens up and running by that time.

"This is a win-win for us. Avatar goes to the Titanic date in December, which was obviously auspicious for Jim and us, and by the time of the release, there will be more worldwide 3-D screens available," E! Online quoted Hutch Parker, vice chairman of Fox Film Group, as telling the Hollywood Reporter. (ANI)
