One of the upcoming films that caught my eye, mainly by its trailer, is Life of Pi.  It is based on the novel Life of Pi by Yann Martel and it about a kid who survives a “disaster at sea” and is stuck on a small boat.  The only problem is, he’s joined by a Bengal tiger.  In a miracle of events the tiger doesn’t eat him.

From the stills it looks like it covers more than just the “at-sea-with-a-tiger” part of his life, it probably covers a good deal of it…besides, it is called “Life of Pi”.

For the record, this is sponsored post (that is where all the cool photos come from).  My opinions still are my own and I wouldn’t agree to post about if I didn’t want to see this film.  

Here is the official synopsis:

With LIFE OF PI, director Ang Lee (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with another survivor…a fearsome Bengal tiger.

Here’s the trailer: And here are some movie stills:

Finally, since I have them, here are a few behind the scenes photos:
