New Life Of Pi Poster Online
And a fresh clip from the film

Update: we have a new poster from Life Of Pi for your viewing pleasure, showing Richard Parker in fine, growling form opposite Pi himself. Check it out, then watch the clip below.

 
 

We’ve had posters and a trailer for Ang Lee’s ambitious and, by all accounts, visually spectacular take on Yann Martel’s Life Of Pi. Now the first clip from the film has arrived, showing Pi (Suraj Sharma) and Bengal tiger Richard Parker) dealing with some flying fish. Take a look above.

The footage showcases the effects-driven but startlingly realistic look of both the fish and the feline antagonist.

Pi follows Piscine Molitor "Pi" Patel, who is voyaging with his parents from India to Canada as they relocate their zoo’s menagerie after political tensions rise at home.

But when the ship sinks in a huge storm, he’s forced to take 227-day journey in a lifeboat when his ship sinks in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. It's a journey he shares with his feline friend (frenemy?), and some other of the zoo’s inhabitants, though suffice to say they don’t last all that long with a tiger hanging around.

Lee's latest docks at our screens on December 20.

i agree it does look gorgeous,just a shame the poster is poor...the typeface banged in the middle of the poster is aligned all wrong and the 2 characters seem to have been photoshopped pretty badly but i am really looking forward to seeing this on the big screen. More

Holy Hell!
I thought the trailers for this looked really good but that little clip has completely sold me. How properly, beautifully wonderful does this film look!? More
