Avatar in 3-D is soooo last week

Forget 3-D, the Koreans are taking the Avatar viewing experience all the way to 4-D. Which means you’ll actually get to feel the spittle from a wild banshee hit your cheek, mid-scream.

According to the Post Chronicle Korea’s Seoul Theater has lined up 25 different special effects to give audiences the full 4-D experience

Avatar is coming in 4D at Korean theaters. Don’t know what 4D is? It’s one of the coolest ways to watch a movie and feel a part of the action. Korea will give a full 4-dimensional experience for its viewers and tickets will cost $15.80.

The 4D seats are movie activated. When theres a scene of sprinkling water, you’ll feel real sprinkling water hit you. When there are explosives, you will be able to smell them. you’ll feel the wind as the characters fly through the sky. Your seat will also move during tense movie scenes. There are over 25 different special effects added to Korea’s Seoul Theater.

Korea’s Wonderworld Studio partnered up with an U.S. animation picture company to present 4D movies and rides. It is unclear if America and other countries may start implementing these movie experiences to movie theaters here

This isn’t the first 4-D experience for Korea, the theater has been throwing water in the audience’s faces since Journey to the Center of the Earth and plans on doing the same thing for Percy Jackson and The Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

My only issue, wet popcorn!

Best Avatar Review Yet!

The brains behind the hilarious 70-Minute video review of Phantom Menace is back and taking on James “Snake-Oil Selling” Cameron. The lunatic critic takes the director to task for tricking the audience into loving his theme-park ride of a film.

If you haven’t seen the original Phantom Menace review, we highly recommend it. This one is a bit more of a slow-starter, but it has it where it counts. We especially appreciate the Disney eye break down and Garbage Pail Kids reference.

Avatar Becomes Top Grossing Film of All Time

When I first saw the trailer for Avatar I can honestly say that I never expected the sci-fi epic, to overtake Titanic… or for that matter even be good. Now after seeing it for myself I can see why it’s become the top grossing film of all time.

The BBC has a pretty good story up about Avatar beating Titanic –

The original Titanic sank in 1912. Now the blockbuster movie it inspired has also gone down.

Avatar’s worldwide takings in just six weeks stand at $1.859bn (£1.15bn), versus Titanic’s $1.843bn (£1.14bn).

The figures are not adjusted for inflation or the higher cost of Avatar’s 3D film tickets.

Director James Cameron holds the remarkable distinction of directing both the world’s top grossing movies.

Titanic, which starred Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, set a new box office record during its release in 1997-1998.

As long as you don’t account for inflation or increased ticket cost…
