August 26th, 2022 by Marc Comments

James Cameron’s Avatar is heading back to cinemas in 4k, 3D and it’s looking like it’s going to be stunning.

The release is ahead of the December release of sequel Avatar: The Way of Water (here).

The  2009 original movie was a mind-blowing experience in cinemas and really made it feel like 3D was the future of cinema and it was… briefly. But to this day. no 3D movie has been anywhere near a beautifully immersive as this classic.

The movie stars Sam Worthington as Jake Sully, A paraplegic Marine dispatched to the moon Pandora to take place in a new kind of invasion – as he was tasked with putting him mind in an avatar, a living breathing alien, to integrate and become part of the tribe of aliens who live on the planet so the humans can better study them.

It’s a movie that I tried to watch at home a couple of times and could not get into at all, but I’m genuinely looking forward to experiencing the 3D on the big screen again next month.

Avatar is back in cinemas on September 23rd

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
