Avatar Gets Its Own Themed Nightclub ... Here are 10 More Movies We'd Like to See Club-ified
First it was the box office's highest-grossing film in the world, then it was the creepiest (and rarely well-executed) Halloween costume, and now, it's the inspiration for Avastar, a nightclub in South Africa.

Getting your drink on as an Avatar seems cool and all, but here are 10 movies we'd much rather see as nightclubs, in no particular order.
10. Fight Club Picture this: a gritty, sleezy location tucked in the crevices of your city. All the bartenders would dress like Tyler Durden. And you have to fight them to get your Kilt Lifter. Don't know what we'd do about advertising though, because, well, the first rule of Fight Club ...
9. Inception Good luck finding the bar.

If you regret sucking face with your ex on the dancefloor, take solace in the fact that you could just be dreaming.
