Is it true Avatar was shot in 1080p ?? If so, that'll be super disappointing. I mean even most movies with 2K DI's were originally shot in higher resolution than 2K.

Just picked up a used copy of the Collector's Extended Blu-Ray box. First rewatch in almost a decade...

I watched the special features before rewatching, and that made me very conscious of the fact that the movie was uneven. They spent so much time on the first few effects shots, but for the last year it was constant, nonstop pressure to meet deadlines. It really shows in the movie because those first few special effects shots they completed look AMAZING, but the rest of the movie is very uneven. None of the other shots look quite as good, and some of them look totally average to my eyes.

Granted, I was watching the extended cut, but I also wasn't crazy about the editing. A lot of the editing is brilliant, but in terms of story and pacing, the extended cut is all over the place. Next time I watch it (probably right before the second film) I'll watch the theatrical cut and see if I prefer it to the extended cut. I think I will. Extended cut just feels exhausting because it has these epic action scenes and then long stretches of drama and my brain wasn't sure what to make of the wildly uneven levels of stimulation. By the end of the three hours, I was exhausted but unsatisfied.

Still, cool movie overall. One of the best approximations of an old pulp sci-fi novel come to life.

Also, I was a little disappointed in the picture quality of the Blu-Ray.

Do you think this movie will ever get a 4k release ? I was thinking of getting the collectors Blu-ray but didn’t want to get it if a 4k was coming out soon.

Most likely as a tie-in for Avatar 2.

Avatar 2 is done on the production side. This was just announced on Channel 7 in New York city, a parent company of Disney. It's schedule to be released in 2022. And Avatar 3 will be released in 2023.

Some of the digital cameras used during production have a max resolution of 1080p, yes, though the DoP said they eventually started using the Sony F23 which is 2K. But early digital cameras were 1080p (remember, they filmed in 2007), and Avatar was also being shot in 3D, so there were many, many technical considerations beyond mere resolution - they spent years working on the camera set-up.

Plus, the cameras they used still capture 4:4:4 HD, so there's ample dynamic range to be mined from the footage. Annnd, of course, large swaths of the movie are 100% CGI.

The HDR remaster should still look great, I'm looking forward to experiencing it!
