Talk about eclectic. Ang Lee sure likes to keep doing new things. Who else has gone from drama to martial arts to period war/romance to superhero movies? Lee’s latest is “Life of Pi”, based on the supposedly “unadaptable” book by Yann Martel. I don’t know, it sure looks like Lee managed to get it done, and it looks pretty good, too. Check out a new trailer for “Life of Pi”. And remember, kids, when you get stuck with a tiger in a life boat, try not to look too delicious.
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates an all-audience movie event about a young man on a fateful voyage who, after a spectacular disaster, is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. He becomes marooned on a lifeboat he must share with the ship’s only other survivor, a fearsome Bengal tiger with whom he makes an amazing and unexpected connection.
Pi’s life consists of Suraj Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan, Tabu, Adil Hussain, and Ayush Tandon.
