Ang Lee's LIFE OF PI is set to open next month and already it's generating buzz as "the next AVATAR" in terms of visually stunning special effects.  I guess you could have a worse comparison.  In this new clip from the film, the titular star is writing a "message in a bottle" describing his plight just before coming face-to-face with his companion/adversary, a Bengal tiger.  Obviously, the visuals are the big show here and this looks to be a hell of a feast for the eyes. 

Take a look:


Our own review for the film is overwhelmingly positive and it certainly looks to be trending that way.  Having read the book many years ago I always envisioned it as a movie, although at the time it felt like there was almost no way to adapt it.  Fortunately, the effects realm has advanced to a point where, when done exceptionally, the lines of reality and effects are blurred. 

LIFE OF PI, starring Suraj Sharma, Irrfan Khan, Rafe Spall, and Gerard Depardieu is set to sail into theaters on November 21, 2012. in IMAX and 3D.

Extra Tidbit: Any other fans of the book? What were your expectations for an adapted version of it?

I'm a massive fan of the book and this looks quite perfect (probably more stylized than I imaged, but perhaps that's exactly what's needed to set it apart from other, more conventional adaptations). I really think Fox deserves some credit I know, I can't believe I typed that either for shepherding this along and sticking with it. The list of directors they attached to the project before Ang Lee finally got the job done were all well suited to the material. I'd happily have sat through

The list of directors they attached to the project before Ang Lee finally got the job done were all well suited to the material. I'd happily have sat through Jean-Pierre Jeunet's version, and even M. Night Shyamalan may have done a good job based on the material, his Indian heritage, and his ability to work with child actors. I have no doubt Ang Lee knocked it out of the park, though.

I love Ang Lee. What a masterful Filmmaker, and still consider Crouching Tiger to be his best film. This one looks like another masterpiece, it looks so beautiful.
