After last year’s We Bought a Zoo, 20th Century Fox must quite like Sigur Rós. Before segueing into some Coldplay, the latest international trailer for Life of Pi kicks off with the sweet Icelandic sounds of Jonsi and shows a great deal not in our first trailer. We’re initially given proof that Tobey Maguire has indeed been replaced by Rafe Spall, as we’re privy to an introductory scene between the actor and Irffan Khan leading us into this story of a boy and a huge adventure.
Transitioning to newcomer Suraj Sharma, I’m still not sold on this digital cinematography, as it gives off a fake look to the surroundings, but Ang Lee has certainly created quite a world.

Check it out below for the film that will soon open New York Film Festival and also stars Gerard Depardieu and Adil Hussain.

Genre film fans are likely familiar with writer Alex Garland‘s output over the last decade and a half. He made his name with a splash when his novel was adapted into the backpacking adventure thriller The Beach in 2000 and struck again with screenplay for 28 Days Later which some credit as the fire that helped reignite […]
