Suraj Sharma in Life of Pi

When there's more amazing imagery from this film, I can't help but feature it. It was recently announced that Ang Lee's Life of Pi would be the Opening Film of the 50th New York Film Festival coming up in late September. We've already seen one magnificent trailer for Life of Pi and plenty of other stunning photos, but we have four more shots worth taking a closer look at. The Playlist found these photos and they focus mostly on young Indian actor Suraj Sharma, who plays Pi Patel in the film, the boy lost at sea in a lifeboat with a tiger. "Water, kids, animals and 3D. Everything you should avoid in the movie business," Lee joked.

"I am both delighted and honored to be back at the New York Film Festival with Life of Pi." The new photos:

Bobo you have a superficial vision.It may appear to be like Castaway, but it's a bit different.Read the book and you will see the details which make it so.

You made a screen name based solely on my screen name? Wow. Stalker much? And I've read the book. I know the surprise ending. But I'm sure that's not the point as much as you wanting to brag that you've read a book. Kudos, Poindexter.
