Life of Pi Trailer (2012) Ang Lee Movie HD

Synopses & Reviews
Publisher Comments:

The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is sixteen, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes. The ship sinks. Pi finds himself alone in a lifeboat, his only companions a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra, and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon the tiger has dispatched all but Pi, whose fear, knowledge, and cunning allow him to coexist with Richard Parker for 227 days while lost at sea. When they finally reach the coast of Mexico, Richard Parker flees to the jungle, never to be seen again. The Japanese authorities who interrogate Pi refuse to believe his story and press him to tell them “the truth.” After hours of coercion, Pi tells a second story, a story much less fantastical, much more conventional — but is it more true?
Review:

“This breezily aphoristic, unapologetically twee saga of man and cat is a convincing hands-on, how-to guide for dealing with what Pi calls, with typically understated brio, ‘major lifeboat pests.'” The New Yorker

About the Author
Yann Martel, the child of diplomats, grew up in Costa Rica, France, Mexico, Alaska and Canada and as an adult has spent time in Iran, Turkey and India.

The first trailer for the upcoming Ang Lee movie, “Life of Pi,” is now available for your viewing pleasure.

Based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Yann Martel, “Life of Pi” follows Indian boy Piscine Molitor “Pi” Patel, who is stranded on a boat in the Pacific Ocean after a shipwreck, with only a couple of animals — including a Bengal tiger — to keep him company.

From what can be seen in the trailer, the movie will be quite a visual feast, with a lot of digital effects and some amazing imagery from cinematographer Claudio Miranda, known for his work on “Tron,” “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “Seven.”

The film is directed by Academy Award winner Ang Lee, known for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,” “The Ice Storm” and “Brokeback Mountain.” It is slated to hit the cinemas on Nov. 21, 2012.

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.
