I really hope this becomes as big of a hit as it looks like it should be. 20th Century Fox has launched a brand new official website for Life of Pi, and it doesn't contain too much yet but is worth seeing. The studio just started an unconventional marketing plan for Ang Lee's Life of Pi adaptation, about an Indian boy stuck on a boat in the ocean with a tiger, showing full clips in 3D in front of their movies (Prometheus has one right now). The site shows a brief opening clip, but also contains five new beautiful images (integrated into the site) but they were all stunning enough to feature today. Plus, I'm going crazy with anticipation for this film.
Click on any of the five new images below to see their website, the first opening clip, and higher res versions.
And here's the first official Life of Pi clip that was also posted on the site, but is just a short opening promo:
Be sure to see Prometheus in 3D to check out the first full promo clip from Life of Pi playing before the film.
Life of Pi is 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 Tobey Maguire, Irrfan and Tabu, but is mostly the animals and Pi. Fox already has Life of Pi scheduled for release December 21st this year. We'll keep our eyes open for more Pi news and maybe a trailer soon.
