    Culver City, Calif. (TBD) ? On June 7, 2011, families will revel in the imaginary worlds, inspired dance and gravity-defying acrobatic creativity of the famed Cirque du Soleil performers when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment releases Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man in 3D on Blu-ray 3D for the SRP of $19.95. Originally shot in 3D for IMAX theatrical distribution and filmed on location at various natural and historical landmarks around the world, the magical film takes viewers on an incredible journey - from bungee-diving through the giant redwoods in Boulder Creek, California to submerged synchronized swimming in the islands of the Bahamas.



    Narrated by Sir Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, X-Men: The Last Stand), the film stars Cirque du Soleil artists Brian Dewhurst, Nicky Dewhurst and Yves Decoste, who were challenged to perform out of the protective theater setting and in the unpredictable great outdoors.



    Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man in 3D is presented in high definition 3D, optimized for the latest 3D playback devices and eyewear. For those who prefer to witness the daring journey in two dimensions, 2D playback is also available.

From the opening explosion of light and sound that represents the universe's formation, Cirque du Soleil: Journey of Man in 3D leads us through the birth of the Universal Child as it travels from childhood, through adolescence and manhood, on to maturity. An awe-inspiring feast for the senses, incomparable artistry and stylish elegance make this an adventure of a lifetime.
