Ang Lee Introduces the Flying Fish Clip from 'Life of Pi' Adaptation
"I'm pleased to present this special clip from the film which I hope gives you a flavor of the spirit of our lead character, Pi Patel." While it's not often that we feature clips, this is one I'm making an exception for. Not only because it's a good clip for a film that I am looking forward to seeing, but it's the same clip that was used as a trailer in front of Prometheus back in June. This time it has an Ang Lee introduction (where that quote at the beginning comes from). Pi is played by Suraj Sharma, and I bet you can't tell the tiger is CGI. It's a fun clip plus another reminder to keep an eye on this when it hits theaters this Thanksgiving. Enjoy!
Here's the flying fish clip/preview for Ang Lee's Life of Pi adaptation, originally from Yahoo:
Life of Pi is the story of an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son who finds himself in the company of a hyena, zebra, orangutan, and a Bengal tiger after a shipwreck sets them adrift in the Pacific. Life of Pi, based on Yann Martel's novel, is being directed in 3D by Oscar winning Taiwanese filmmaker Ang Lee, of Taking Woodstock, Lust Caution, Brokeback Mountain, Hulk and Crouching Tiger previously. The cast includes Irrfan Khan, Adil Hussain and Tabu, in addition to the animals and Pi, as it also looks like there's quite a bit going on in this. Fox has Life of Pi scheduled for a wide 3D release November 21st this year. You in?
