Life of Pi

Audiences seem to be uncertain what to think about Ang Lee's adaptation of Life of Pi. While two pretty stellar trailers have surfaced, the visual style and fantastic nature of the story just don't seem to be met with a lot of excitement. Hopefully some good word of mouth will change that when the film gets close to release, but in the meantime, here's a new featurette featuring the Brokeback Mountain director talking about the challenge of this story that many people thought was unfilmmable. There's a few bits of new footage and a cool look behind the scenes of this special effects heavy adventure, including the gorgeously animated tiger.

Here's the new "Impossible Journey" featurette for Ang Lee's Life of Pi, originally from MSN:

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?

      The tiger looks good/realistic. The real question is: will he move like a realistic tiger?
