Avatar is doing a nice thing with all the money it made peddling Satan's wares. On Earth Day, Fox will team up with Earth Day Network to plant one million trees. Oh, and they'll pimp the Blu-Ray Avatar release too.
While we commend Fox on their global initiative, we hope they don't pass up this opportunity for the public to "make Tsaheylu" with all these glorious trees.
So what's so special about this Blu-Ray, besides all the trees? Cameron has already said he's holding most of the deleted scenes for the Director's Cut and extended DVD this November, which will have the infamous deleted bar scene. Apparently the Blu-Ray will have secret codes the owner can plunk into a website where they will get exclusive first-look bonus material access…until it's on the internet.
But the real fun is the Pandorama experience where fans can, according to the press release, "immerse themselves into the world of Pandora, inserting themselves into different locations from the movie and interacting with the elements in each; users can snap postcards and share amongst friends only at pandorama.avatarmovie.com." They should just open it up and make an Avatar-only chatroulette site. I would spend countess hours on that.

Here is the U.S. trailer for Nash Edgerton's Australian neo-noir thriller "The Square" which was acquired by Bob Berney's Apparition earlier this year.
Most of these "films" are pretty bad. Okay, really bad. But it would still be kinda cool to see them again. I remember watching "Damnation Alley" when I was a kid. It kinda tickled my my scifi heart. Don't ask me why, but it did. Also "Futureworld" was pretty awesome. I actually have that on VHS. (remember that old tech? VCRs actually still work!)
BTW, I checked with Netflix and "Moonwalker" IS available on DVD. Come on, now, if it wasn't, it just wouldn't be right.
