'Avatar' Getting Even Longer, Another Theatrical Release?

Did Avatar's 162-minute running time leave you another to see another 10 minutes of mundane parable whitewashed with CGI? JC's got you covered:

James Cameron and Fox are in discussions about rereleasing "Avatar," primarily in 3D theaters, in late summer -- and, tantalizingly, with additional scenes that had been left on the cutting-room floor in the rush to ready the epic for its Dec. 18 release.

Cameron had said that he had 10-12 minutes of extra scenes that he cut and could quickly put through postproduction and have ready to add to a director's cut for a theatrical reissue or as an extra on the DVD release. One scene has to do with Jake Sully's avatar proving himself to the Na'vi people; the other involves a native festival during which tribe member Tsu'tey gets drunk.

God, a Na'vi drunk scene. The glowing bubbles Tsu'tey will emit with each comic "hic!" will be so breathtakingly hilarious.
