Following the release of the poster earlier this week, iTunes Trailers has released the first official trailer for Ang Lee’s Life of Pi, based on the novel by Yann Martel. Visually stunning, this gives us a taste of how this fantastic tale will be translated to the big screen. It stars Suraj Sharma, Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu.
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.
Life of Pi is released in Australia on 1 January 2013 from Fox. It is released in the US on 21 November 2012.
