Want to Attend An Extended Preview of James Cameron's 'Avatar' Next Week?

As we reported live from Comic-Con via Twitter, August 21st will be 'Avatar' day at select IMAX 3D locations across the country. Today details of this were announced and next Monday you will have your shot to get tickets to this. You will have to go to the Avatar site (found here) by noon PST on Monday to see if you are one of the lucky few to get them. This is a 15 minute preview of the movie with a filmed introduction by the man himself, James Cameron. This will be a lot of the footage that was shown at Comic-Con, not all of it. But come on! It's 15 minutes of what looks to be an amazing, f***ing movie. There will be 2 screenings on the 21st. One at 6:00 PM and at 6:30 PM. If you are planning on buying tickets to see the 3D version of Harry Potter after it (or before it) and expect to be able to access the trailer….sorry, no dice. This is a separate ticket viewing and you will have to buy your ticket to HP, exit and then come back..or vice-versa. This will be limited to two tickets per person (which will then quickly be put up on Ebay and Craigslist) for your venue. A list of participating theaters will be up on the site during this time. In case you haven't figured it out yet, not all IMAX locations will be participating. So just because you live near one, don't assume it will be playing there. You could work right down the street from the Monterey IMAX and STILL have to drive up to San Francisco to see it. (Which is about right because they don't show first run movies there. They just started showing 'Star Trek' in IMAX a couple of weeks ago!) But I digress… There will also be a shorter version of the trailer (in 2D and 3D) that will begin playing in theaters this day as well. We know that it is supposed to be attached to 'Inglourius Basterds'.

So be sure to check out the 'Avatar' site on Monday and see if you are one of the lucky peeps to get in. If you do, let us know what you think.
