Everyone can now pre-order a copy of Avatar on DVD and Blu-ray Disc for its release next month, but those wanting to get the full 3D experience at home will have to wait until next year.

Avatar, the highest-grossing movie in American history which overtook the 13-year record-holder Titanic, will be released on home media three times. The first is the bare-bones edition that will be on store shelves next month.

That will be followed up in November by the "Ultimate Edition" release, with the typical extra features that consumers expect, like commentary, deleted scenes, and behind-the-scenes footage.

However, the most anticipated version of the film will not come out until next year. The 3D Blu-ray release of Avatar will be available some time in 2011; no specific window has been announced. It will likely earn cred as one of the first major "show-off" movies for those with 3D TVs.

Avatar is still in some first-run theaters now, three months after it first hit the big screen. Total revenue figures to date put the gross domestic ticket sales at over $2.64 billion.
