Here’s an interesting article I found on Worst Previews that they got from THR who are reporting that 20th Century Fox created over an 100 version’s of James Cameron’s epic movie Avatar. This was simply an gigantic task for Fox to make sure as many cinema’s where able to show the movie world as well give the best movie experience ever.As cinema’s worldwide are different in size as well as equipment so this is the reason for so many versions of the movie.
18 versions where made for the domestic market (American market) and a further 92 versions for the international market, which was released in an amazing 47 languages. The international released movies where released either as a subtitled or dubbed versions, 58 subtitled & 36 dubbed for the digital 3d then theres 8 dubbed in digital 2d. We also have the IMAX versions which had 23 subtitled with 15 dubbed then theres screen sizes to think of as well. As cinema screens come in all shapes and sizes, there’s 3 scopes the movie had to be created into; Scope (2:39:1), flat (1:85:1) and IMAX (1:43:1). In some cases, a multiplex cinema maybe required to different versions for different screen configurations.
Even down to the lightining in the movie also was a factor with different 3-d glassess created to suit different screens, Fox have certainly covered every single angle down to the smallest detail to make sure all of us enjoyed the movie.
