Earlier this week, we saw a great new TV spot for the film, and now Fox have released a new featurette, going behind the scenes to give us a great inside look at how the film was shot.
“Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.”
Newcomer Suraj Sharma takes the lead in the coming epic drama, promising a strong acting debut, supported by Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Rafe Spall, and Gérard Depardieu, with Lee directing from a script by Oscar-nominated David Magee (Finding Neverland), adapting the critically acclaimed and best-selling novel by Yann Martel.
Life of Pi will be released in 3D in the US on 21st November, in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, followed by a release here in the UK on 20th December, just in time for Christmas. I can’t wait. This looks remarkable.
