Paramount has released a new set of four posters for the skilfully staged 3D film Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away.

Shrek and Narnia director Andrew Adamson used slo-mo, close-ups and inventive camera angles to smooth the the spectacular skills of the Cirque du Soleil performers from big top to big screen.

A drama set against a variety of Cirque styles and acts, whose plot is still under wraps, but involves a young woman Mia (Erica Linz) who falls for a circus performer, a trapeze artist simply known as The Aerialist (Igor Zaripov)and slips with him into a strange, dreamy underworld where they get separated.

They spend the movie looking for each other while experiencing seven Cirque-themed worlds, such as a parallel universe where she meets the madly prancing clown (John Clarke).

Produced by James Cameron, Cirque du Soleil opens in theaters on December 21st, 2012.
