James Cameron to Help Make 3D Cirque du Soleil Movie

By: Erik Davis on December 8, 2010 at 2:49PM Comments (13)

In his effort to turn every piece of entertainment into 3D, James Cameron will be producing a new family-oriented feature film that will in some way be connected to those high-flying, freakishly flexible wizards from Cirque du Soleil. The film itself sounds a bit confusing and we’re curious to see what the end result will look like, but based on the description provided by Deadline it appears as if the movie will include a narrative storyline that will be mixed with 3D coverage of different themed Cirque du Soleil performances in Las Vegas.

How they will connect the story to the different performances, we don’t know, but for anyone who’s experienced (and enjoyed) Cirque du Soleil in person (I’ve seen approximately 10 shows myself, and they’ve all been wonderful) should have a fun time with this. You may make fun of Cameron for obsessing over turning everything into 3D, but I commend his creativity and commitment to reach out to other mediums and explore them in the third dimension.
If Avatar taught us anything, it’s that this man knows how to do 3D the right way, and Cirque du Soleil – with its poetic, larger-than-life acrobatic performances – should fit right in with Cameron’s technological advancements. What do you think?

    I think it would be a strangely new masterpiece: CIRQUE De Solei is a phenomenal Circus of amazing Acrobatic professionals on Earth. I wish the fame AVATAR/TITANIC Director Mr. James Cameron much success with this new quest "Cirque De Solei" in 3-D...'and their unusual in 2D, too! Awesome show(s)!!!!!

    I think it's a great idea as it will expose people who can't afford to travel to Vegas or see a live show in their own city. It's the kind of thing that used to be done in IMAX on the six-storey screen, but isn't done much anymore. In fact, I think there was an IMAX Cirque film some time ago... not sure. While a 3D film won't ever replace the magic of a live performance, it is a way to capture what Cirque has to offer for posterity, and get up close to the performers, which can't be done in a live theater setting.

    I think its a terrible idea. People need to see Cique live and in person. A movie screen will sevre as a injustice for the beauty and amazement of the Cirque.

    I paid $165 a ticket to see KA at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. It was worth every penny. (Actually did it twice, a year apart.) I would LOVE to see it on the Big Screen!!

    I think this is creative and nice for people who can't afford or don't have time to go to an actual show.

    You spelled soleil wrong, and now I hate you forever. And I'm not sure how the movie would work out, but it's a neat idea...
