Following the inclusion of some complete scenes playing exclusively in theaters before Fox’s summer blockbusters, the studio has finally released a theatrical trailer for Ang Lee‘s major fall blockbuster, the adaptation of the hit novel Life of Pi. Although opinions wavered for his last drama Taking Woodstock, Lee re-confirms himself as a master of imagery here. It’s rare we get a family drama that also has this level of scope and adventure, something I certainly look forward to later this year. Featuring a boy and his newfound tiger the film stars Suraj Sharma, Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu, and one can see the promising new trailer below via Apple.
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.
Life of Pi hits theaters on November 21st, 2012.
