Exclusive: Avatar Special Edition sturmbeest shot

New still from the biggest movie of all time

Avatar 

Avatar is heading back into cinemas next Friday for a Special Edition encore, and we’ve landed a never-before-seen shot from one of the flick’s new scenes.

Showing off the sturmbeest, essentially alien game that the Na’vi hunt for food, this shot comes from one of Avatar Special Edition’s new scenes (courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox). Yes, cinema's biggest grossing movie ever is getting bigger, with nine minutes of new footage having been added to the previous theatrical release.

According to the press information sent our way, the sturmbeest is not only hunted for its meat, it’s also the inspiration for a number of Na’vi pastimes including music, song, dance and art.

Other scenes that have been added to the blue-hued re-release include a hunting scene (glimpsed in the below trailer), an emotional scene folded in near the movie’s close, scenes of Grace at the Na’vi school, a new creature called a Stingbat – and, sigh, a more fleshed-out love scene.

Check out the flick’s SE trailer below…

Looking forward to returning to Pandora? Or think this is just Cameron attempting to squeeze more milk from his cash cow? Talk to us below…

      No it isn't,it's one of the best movies ever created-the plot is cleverly thought up and the scenes are so magical. The only movie that beats it is Toy Story 3.

      I think this film is a lot more than Pocahontas in Space: it divides its audience between those who are with the 'green' thing and believe in saving the rainforests and those who haven't got off 'The Road'. Technically and creatively, it's a work of genius. Yes, its message about American foreign policy and the fight for resources is simplistic, but its important. I'm certainly going for another trip to the multiplex to don my x-ray specs... In 3D it's awesome.

      I don't understand why people get bent out of shape regarding Avatar's anti was/co friendly message. People go on like it's a bad thing. Do these same people s**t on their own doorstep?

      I posted a rather different take on Avatar after seeing it at this week's screening. Choosing instead to focus on the ecosophy of the story rather than the visual effects and relationships. http://staticmass.net/?p=3060
