The trailer for Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away 3D has gone online. Producer James Cameron and writer/director Andrew Adamson (Shrek) have adapted the popular show into a 3D motion picture that’s about…something. Cirque du Soleil shows aren’t really about story as much as they’re about seeing people who are comprised only of double-joints. I was skeptical about a screen adaptation of Cirque du Soleil since it would be tough to recapture the excitement and energy of their live shows, but their performance at this year’s Oscar ceremony was one of the program’s few highlights, so now I’m curious to see what Worlds Away has to offer.

Cirque du Soleil is a unique experience that everyone should see at least once. Paramount and James Cameron are going to try and make that happen by taking Cirque du Soleil out of the massive tent and bringing it into comparatively tiny theaters. The film, entitled Cirque du Soleil World Away, will be written and directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek) and be released in 3D because 3D is immersive and if you’re not immersed then you clearly hate cinema. Worlds Away will have an original story, and show off the acrobatics and absolutely bizarre tone Cirque has become known for. Don’t tell your kids, “Oh! It’s a circus!” They will be disappointed. Instead, tell them “We’re going to see a man try to stick his head up his own ass! In 3D!”
Hit the jump for the full press release. Cirque du Soleil World Away will be released later this year.
James Cameron is producing a 3D film set in the world of Cirque Du Soleil that combines “narrative storytelling” with filmed Las Vegas performances of the various shows. Director Andrew Adamson (The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian) is currently shooting the narrative segments in New Zealand based on a story of his own creation. Adamson has reportedly completed about a third of the film already, and shown sample footage to several interested distributors.
Cirque Du Soleil is the primary financier on the project, with hopes for a series of family friendly films that prominently feature the circus. Hit the jump for a 3D-ready clip (read: hula hoops!) from the Cirque show Alegría.
