I guess that’s one way to sell a movie.
Trailer: ‘Life of Pi’ - Nov 21
Directed by Ang Lee, starring Suraj Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Gerard Depardieu and Irrfan Khan.
This is the live action adaptation of ‘Madagascar’ right? If nothing else, Ang Lee is showing a mastery of color and imagery, while the sweeping music and cutting structure try to match but seem a bit overwrought. In modern terms, the film might glean comparisons to ‘Castaway’ or ‘127 Hours’, the difference being this doesn’t have the benefit of a marketable star. Will audiences be motivated by its visuals and source material alone?
