Cirque du Soleil coming to movie screens

Want to see the magic of Cirque du Soleil in the comfort of a movie theatre? Here's your chance.

Cirque du Soleil coming to movie screens

Ask anyone who has seen a Cirque du Soleil performance in person: It's a breathtaking adventure that showcases the best acrobatics and showmanship the world has to offer. Seeing a performance on a movie screen doesn't have the same effect, but Paramount Pictures is doing their best to recreate the magic with a new 3D experience.

Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away — written and directed by Shrek's Andrew Adamson and produced by James Cameron — features performances from some of the company's most elaborate productions.

"The coupling of filmmaker James Cameron's groundbreaking 3D visual accomplishments and Andrew Adamson's beautiful direction, combined with a timeless original story written especially for this movie, will make for a truly amazing moviegoing experience for audiences of all ages," said Rob Moore, Vice Chairman of Paramount Pictures, in a statement.

Jacques Méthé, Executive Producer, General Manager, Images, Events, Lifestyle of Cirque du Soleil, agreed.

"This 3D event brings the spectator beyond what they could see at a show, it takes them on the stage. This unique point of view allows the audience to discover the artistic details of our productions and reveal[s] the human spirit that our artists bring to the audience in their performances," he said. "Jim and Andrew have masterfully captured what a Cirque du Soleil 3D experience could offer and Paramount will present it to the world."

Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away will play worldwide starting this year — and we'll be there to see how it compares to a live experience. Want to see it, too? Keep an eye on the official Cirque de Soleil website for release dates.
