We knew Avatar would be coming soon to DVD and Blu-ray, but we didn't know exactly when ... until today. Fox Home Entertainment just announced that James Cameron's blockbuster will be simultaneously released in most markets around the world on April 22, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Keep in mind, though, that next month's release will only be a 2-D version of the film that's already taken in $2.6 billion since its theatrical release on Dec. 18. You'll have to wait a little longer for a 3-D version of the film, which is expected sometime next year.

Will you be rushing out to buy a 2-D Avatar?

Or will you hold out until 2011 for the full 3-D experience?
