Did You Know....

That AVATAR is available in a multitude of "flavors"

Most people have seen it in 2-D and 3-D. A few lucky ones have experienced the IMAX 3-D version. But that isn't where it ends. In some theaters around the world there are also 4-D versions.

4-D theaters have programmed seats for the viewers that move in response to the action in the movie. Not only are your audio and visual senses being stimulated but also your sense of motion. The ultimate form is the 4-D IMAX experience. I've heard rumors that one man in Bangkok, Thailand actually died while watching Avatar 4-D IMAX. I guess the experience is as close as current technology can get us to a Star Trek halodeck .

Have any of you had the 4-D or 4-D Imax experience? I'd sure like to hear a first hand account.

BTW - Avatar is now the highest dollar grossing film of all time. Beating Titanic, also a James Cameron film, this past week. It will probably exceed $2 BILLION in the next week or two.
