CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
OVERVIEW: “A gorgeous movie” (Joel Stein, Time) that critics have hailed as “mesmerizing” (Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune) and “ravishing” (Alan
Scherstuhl, The Village Voice), Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away soars onto Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D and DVD March 12, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Executive produced by James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic) and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Adamson
(The Chronicles of Narnia, Shrek), Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away takes audiences on a wondrous journey across the imaginative landscapes of Cirque du Soleil. Capturing the feats of the extraordinary artists up close using cameras that sometimes soar 70 feet in the air,
Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away “immerses audiences in…the inspiring acrobatics of the world’s most glamorous circus troupe.”(Time Out New York Kids). From spectacular sets and dazzling costumes to the fantasy of enchanted worlds, Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away gives viewers “a chance to experience the wonder of the circus from a perspective you’ll never get ringside” (Chris Knight, Postmedia News).
