WTF? Avatar: Special Edition DVD will have 7 more minutes of footage than the theatrical re-release

Damn, AVATAR looks good in this Blu-ray trailer

If you can hold off until later this year though, 20th Century Fox will release a special edition DVD with bonus features and extra scenes. This initial release will be bare bones.
