Post-Avatar Blues

I just heard about this over the radio that somehow people worldwide who have followed and watched the movie, Avatar, have experienced some kind of depression that they are now dubbing as Post-Avatar Blues. Avatar currently is one of the top-grossing films while gaining fame through its 3D versions.

According to news like from CNN, fans of this movie have been introduced in this very beautiful world of Pandora where the movie is set on. It is a make-belief world that made viewers wished and hoped to live in such a world, that some of them as felt suicidal to dream into being reborn in Pandora.

I haven't actually seen the movie yet, but these write-ups makes me feel more to watch it soon. I guess others do too. :D
