The novel Life Of Pi contains some pretty stunning and imaginative visuals. So fans of the Yann Martel book were a little hesitant when they heard that 20th Century Fox would be turning the novel into a 3D movie.
Would Ang Lee be able to successfully convert Martel’s book into a blockbuster film? Fans got their first hint of an answer today as Fox released a trailer for Life Of Pi.
The novel tells a unique story about a boy who is shipwrecked with various circus animals. That can’t be easy to film. But Ang Lee’s trailer gives viewers one beautiful image after the next.
Time Magazine writes: “If the trailer is any indication, the movie is going to be gorgeous.”
Ang Lee has created some beautiful movies in the past (Broke Back Mountain, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon) but this will be his first 3D movie.
According to IMDB, Life Of Pi tells 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.”
Here’s the trailer for the new Ang Lee movie.

Life Of Pi hits theaters this November.
