Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment presents a groundbreaking cinematic experience you will have to see to believe when LIFE OF PI debuts on stunning Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD from March 8 internationally and on March 12 in North America. Based on the acclaimed best-selling novel from Yann Martel that has been published in 40 languages, and brought to life by visionary Academy Award winning director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), this magical adventure of hope, wonder, survival, and the power of the human spirit has been celebrated by critics all over the world.

A “magnificent and moving” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) motion picture event that has been hailed as “a masterpiece” (Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times), taking in over $500 million in worldwide box office. LIFE OF PI follows Pi Patel, a young man on a fateful voyage who, after a spectacular disaster, is marooned on a lifeboat with the only other survivor, a fearsome 450 lb Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker. Hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery Pi and his majestic companion make an amazing and unexpected connection.

With incredible cinematography from Oscar nominee Claudio Miranda** (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Tron: Legacy) and masterful performances from newcomer Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan (The Amazing Spider-Man, Slumdog Millionaire), Rafe Spall (Prometheus, Anonymous) and Gerard Depardieu (Paris, je t’aime, City of Ghosts), the LIFE OF PI Blu-ray 3D is loaded with over two hours of behind-the-scenes special features, including deleted scenes that will make you rethink the story (also presented in 3D), five featurettes that dive into the making of the visual spectacle, 60 pieces of inspirational artwork, storyboards and more.

Fox Bows Oscar-Nominated ‘Pi’ Early on Digital HD

Oscar-nominated movie, which is still in theaters, is available four weeks before its March 19 retail release via packaged media and VOD

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment Feb. 19 said it is making Oscar-nominated Life of Pi available one month early on its proprietary Digital HD platform via connected televisions, tablets or smartphones.

Pi streets on Blu-ray Disc, DVD and transactional VOD March 19.

Fox launched Digital HD last September with the 14-day early digital release of sci-fi actioner Prometheus. The platform also offers digital access to hundreds of catalog titles.

Life of Pi follows Pi Patel, a young man on a fateful voyage who, after a spectacular disaster, is marooned on a lifeboat with the only other survivor, a 450-pound Bengal Tiger named Richard Parker.

Directed by Ang Lee, Pi is up for 11 Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. The movie is still playing in theaters, including in 3D. It has grossed more than $500 million at the global box office.

Digital HD is available at Amazon Instant Video, Best Buy’s CinemaNow, Google Play, iTunes, Kindle Fire, Nook Video, Sony's PlayStation 3, Walmart’s Vudu, Xbox Video and YouTube for less than $15.

"Today, digital platforms offer us greater flexibility to innovate our consumer offerings," said Mary Daily, president of worldwide marketing and chief marketing officer with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.
