Twentieth Century Fox has released the first official trailer for the upcoming “Life of Pi.”
After Twentieth Century Fox debuted footage from Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's best-selling novel at CinemaCon in the spring, the studio attached clips from Life of Pi to its 3D summer releases such as Prometheus and Ice Age: Continental Drift. Now the studio has given moviegoers a first extended look at the film, with stunning visuals:
Life of Pi isn't the only film this season trying to expand the use of 3D imagery into genres other than superhero movies and Michael Bay action flicks. The Wrap reports that Baz Luhrmann is also experimenting with extra dimensionality in his upcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
With a cast that includes Tobey Maguire, Irrfan Kahn and Suraj Sharma, Life of Pi is set to release on November 21, 2012.
