This research aims to analyze hyper-reality of three-dimensional cinematic experience within postmodern era. In the study, (illusion of) realistic aspect of a cinematic experience is taken into account in order to examine the „shifts‟ occurred in the expectations and the understanding of a cinematic experience due to changes within the social paradigm. In this mentioned context, the movie Avatar (2009) is analyzed through its hyper-realistic characteristics with respect to postmodernist notion of understanding. As a result, it could be said that, due to changes on the mode of thought, any understanding could be shaped inevitably, under the effect of the „norms‟ that came with the mode of thought. In this study, the point tried to be shown is that the changes in the mode of thought has a reflection on the understanding of a cinematic experience.
