I'm excited about all of this talk about an extended edition and would love to see one, but I'm a bit confused by a lot of your responses. With all due respect, I think some people are seriously misguided. Money Talks. Not the lack of money. A boycott of the DVD/Blu-Ray would be disastrous to the cause. The only films that get extended editions or re-released on DVD multiple times are the ones that people BUY. Think about it. Multiple versions of extreme bestsellers are re-leased all of the time. Not duds. Whoever heard of putting out an extended edition of a DVD that sold poorly? It doesn't happen. All of this talk about not buying the DVD/Blu-Ray to prove a point and get the extended edition released will actually have the exact OPPOSITE effect. It won't happen. It's doubtful signing some online petition will either. If you seriously want to see this extended edition released (Like I would) there is only one thing you can do. BUY THE DVD or BLU-RAY of THE LAST AIRBENDER. BUY MULTIPLE COPIES! Give them out to friends and family. Give them away to schools and libraries and churches and donation centers.
The only reason I finally saw this film was because I picked it up at my local library. I was completely brainwashed by the media’s and so-called fans’ critical bashing of this film that I never took the time to watch in theaters. There was a tornado of hate brought down on this maligned film. It was like some form of mass cultural hypnosis that unfairly ate it alive.. Even if it did make over $300 million worldwide, “successful” is not how it is thought. I, for one, thought it was very successful. I’ve since bought it on BLU-RAY and have watched it 4 times. It’s a good and deeply moving film. The look on Aang's face at the end still gets me.
The best thing you can do if you want to see M. Night and/or Paramount finish this saga on film is BUY it and spread the word. Post it on your Facebook. Write a glowing review on Amazon. Fight the HATE and look for the positives. The glass is more than half full in my opinion.
Wow,not bad for your 1st post! Welcome,BTW.
I,too,really like The Last Airbender. And it's cool that you just came here and stated your opinion of the movie,
not worried about being scorned.
But back on topic,I'm not sure if there will be an extended edition. I want there to be one,but I'm not sure it'll happen.
