The New iTunes Edition of Avatar Brings Special Features to Digital Distribution

One of the big things missing from movies purchased online is coming to iTunes

Buying movies online is convenient, quick and - sometimes anyway - cheaper. But you're giving up a few things when buying digital copies, not the least of which is special features. It may not matter for some flicks, but big budget fan favorites require them.

The latest release of 'Avatar' brings some of those special features to iTunes. You'll be able to play around with 17 different scenes and see the motion capture and various stages of visual effects. You'll be able to split the screen up or watch picture-in-picture.

The 'iTunes Extras Special edition' also includes James Cameron's scriptment - a mix between a script and a treatment - a massive image gallery and plenty more.

You can pick up the standard definition version for $14.99 while the high definition 'Avatar' will run you $19.99.
