Lord of the Dance appears in 3D

SuperVision Media has just sent over this item. It's about the new film from Michael Flatley and "Lord Of The Dance". In some strange way I feel that this is what 3D is for - not the shock value from Saw, or the 80s version of 3D, where things are just thrown at the audience at random points to a more impressive experience with the dances coming out towards the audience making it feel more that "you are there" watching it live not "what a nice film about dance"!

Tickets are on sale now for the ground-breaking new movie project from the original Lord of the Dance, Michael Flatley. The hotly anticipated “LORD OF THE DANCE 3D” uses pioneering 3D technology to give cinema audiences the opportunity to experience the show as never before.

Filmed over five nights, in two different cities, and using twenty alternating 3D camera angles, audiences are offered a truly unique viewing experience.

Since its premiere in 1996, Lord of the Dance, a classic tale of Good versus Evil, based on Irish folklore and expressed through the universal language of dance, has thrilled audiences worldwide, catapulting Irish dance to a new dimension and unprecedented worldwide acclaim. Now fans will have a once in a lifetime opportunity, when its creator, producer, director and star, MICHAEL FLATLEY, brings it to the screen in spectacular 3D. “LORD OF THE DANCE 3D” gives the viewer unprecedented access to Flatley’s performance, with an unparalleled sense of the scale of the show, as never seen before. An acclaimed multi-camera specialist with over 20 years’ experience in the live music industry, director MARCUS VINER has collaborated with MICHAEL FLATLEY to capture the show’s incredible energy and its ability to cross boundaries of age, gender and cultural diversity. The spectacular new set design, lighting, special effects and costumes promise to excite and enchant audiences worldwide, making the show an unforgettable experience.
Truly a global phenomenon, Lord of the Dance has been seen by more than sixty million people in sixty different countries, on every continent. MICHAEL FLATLEY sold out twenty-one consecutive nights at Wembley Arena, as well as thirteen consecutive nights in New York’s Radio City Music Hall. He went on to appear at the legendary Madison Square Garden, and tickets sold out within days of going on sale in Australia. Remarkably, he then went onto break all known box office records in South Africa. The show completed an incredible six-year residency in Las Vegas and performed before an audience of more than one hundred thousand in a football stadium in Budapest, Hungary. Now, for the first time ever, fans and audiences around the world can enjoy watching the charismatic Michael Flatley dominate the stage, while experiencing the movie event of the year.

Presented by Unicorn Entertainment and Dance Lord International, the film has been produced by the pioneering UK-based 3D production company Nineteen Fifteen Productions, in association with ITN Productions. “LORD OF THE DANCE 3D” will be brought to movie theatres worldwide by SuperVision Media, with Kaleidoscope distributing other formats.

“LORD OF THE DANCE 3D” will be released in UK cinemas nationwide for one week only on March 13, 2011
