For his follow-up to the disappointing Taking Woodstock, director Ang Lee has been hard at work on his adaptation of Life of Pi. With a release date set for this fall, we’re finally starting to get a peek of the film, as Fox is placing uncut scenes for the 3D adventure film before many of its major movies, including last week’s Prometheus.

Based off a script by David Magee, Life of Pi stars Suraj Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Irrfan Khan, Gerard Depardieu, Shravanthi Sainath,Tabu, and Adil Hussain. It will hit theaters November 21, 2012.
