For anyone sorely missing James Cameron’s 2009 feature Avatar, today’s about to become a good day. It was not enough for Cameron to schedule three (3!) sequels to the sci-fi fantasia, and it was not enough for him to guarantee that they will “be bitchin’” and “make you s— yourself with your mouth wide open.” It was not enough for Disney to begin development on an Avatar theme park, effectively making the world of the movie real. The only place left to take Avatar-branded entertainment is to the realm of unsettlingly surreal, and that is where Cirque du Soleil comes in.
Cirque du Soleil
Cirque du Soleil has been running for nearly thirty years now, and it's done phenomenal business in towns like Las Vegas. But - so far - all reproductions of the show have mostly gone direct to video. They couldn't recreate the experience. But now that 3D is so prominent it makes sense that 'Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away' will play theaters this December 21.
