We know that James Cameron is all about his Avatar babies right now, but before he stopped producing other projects, he worked on Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away. The 3D film is set for a December 21st release and the trailer looks absolutely amazing. Checkie out inside!
Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away
Here’s a synopsis of the movie from Screen Rant:
Worlds Away was written and directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Chronicles of Narnia). It incorporates elements from the Cirque du Soleil performances into a fictional narrative, about a young woman (Erica Linz) who enters the fantastical realm populated by characters and creatures featured in the company’s Las Vegas shows. As the trailer illustrates: the final result is some of the coolest theater performance footage ever recorded (in 3D, no less).

I’ve never been to one of these shows (Trent has, and I’d love to hear from those of you PITNBrs who have seen one as well), which leads me to question my own commitment to the arts and entertainment. Although, I think I always thought of that Cirque du Soleil scene from Knocked Up (where Seth Rogen and Paul Rudd make the dire mistake of taking shrooms before the show) and always thought it would be scary. But I’m starting to think that Judd Apatow’s message was more about the hallucinogens and less about the show.
These visuals are stunning (did I seriously just see somebody dive into the moon?!) and I cannot wait to see how it all goes down in 3D. Even those who are anti-the 3D movement must admit that this particular type of film is only enhanced by those silly little glasses.
Who else is suddenly pumped about fire breathers and acrobats and James Cameron-produced movies that promise to take you worlds away?!0
