One of the great things about film festival and conventions is that even though everyone can’t attend, film studios always release tons of promo images for upcoming films. Adhering to that transition, the first image for Ang Lee’s 3D adptation of Life of Pi has made its way online via Collider. Starring Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Kahn, and Tobey McGuire, the film is ”the 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 Ocean.”
Though this image is pretty simple, it is very beautiful and gives us an idea of the composition that Ang Lee is going for. From the cleanliness of that boat to the size of the tiger to the sky, it looks pretty cool. Life of Pi is Ang Lee’s first film in three years and first 3D film, so it will be interesting to see how his skills translate to the new medium.
Life of Pi will be released December 21, 2012.
