    Digital version also gone from amazon. So it seems that Apple didn't pull it.

    Avatar Gone From US iTunes

    Maybe they did not want any competition with their new Extended version Blu Ray that just got released yesterday.

    Avatar in iTunes

    I just ripped my DVD OF Avatar & was tagging it in MetaX. I got to the cnID & went to find it in the store & found it gone.

    Is there anyone who downloaded it before it was removed who can post the cnID ('Catalog ID' in MetaX on the 'Advanced' tab)?

    None of the tagChimp entries are that complete & none have it. I'll do some grooming when I get it so others can find it & hopefully when they put it back (You ARE planning to put it back, right Cameron?) they'll use the same cnID

    Avatar? Isn't that the film where the nasty capitalists are ruining their world with the aid of our savage marines and everyone applauds the killing of the Marines? Hollywood gave out Oscars for this? :confused:

    @Gaelic2 This Forum isn't for griping about your difference of opinions with Hollywood.

    I think I may have the cnID for Avatar.

    I found this link { http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/...18&s=143441&uo=2&v0=WWW-NAUS-ITSTOP100-MOVIES }

    Which SHOULD mean that the cnID is: 354112018

    The link opens iTunes & says that the item isn't available in the US Store. When in the UK or Canadian store, it says to change stores, then says it's not available in the US store.

    I don't like the end of the link, but if you take off the extra stuff it still takes you to iTunes with the same stuff.

    Oh please. Its a fictional movie its not like its al-qaida killing marines and people are cheering. No offense but thoughts like yours is why censorship happens. Also if you see the movie they aren't Marines they are ex-military that are hired as mercenaries pretty much. Jake is the only one they state was a former marine and he becomes the hero.

    Not to mention when I saw the film it was at a theater on a military base in Iraq. Not one soldier seemed to feel offended by the movie since the entire theater stood up and cheered and clapped after it ended.
