James Cameron is sending audiences on an extended tour of "Avatar" as his blockbuster returns to theaters next month with eight minutes of extra footage.

Distributor 20th Century Fox announced Thursday that Cameron's special edition of "Avatar" will debut exclusively in digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D theaters on Aug. 27.

Cameron said he has heard repeatedly from fans asking to see more of the science-fiction sensation, which centers on a conflict between greedy humans and the noble blue-skinned warriors who inhabit a distant moon.

The filmmaker says the added footage includes new creatures and action scenes.

The biggest modern blockbuster, "Avatar" has rung up $2.7 billion in box-office revenue worldwide.
