Ang Lee‘s return in the director’s chair looks set to be an unbelievably beautiful affair as Life Of Pi marks an adventure like no other. Not content with wowing us through one already released trailer, an international trailer has now been released, this time also focusing on the human edge of the proceedings.
Giving us glimpses of the older Pi (Irrfan Khan) talking through his epic adventure, the trailer involves the humans who will be at the centre of the film as well as the animals we are already familiar with, following our first encounter with the movie’s advertisement. Moving on from the human side of the events, the trailer moves on to once to again showcase a breathtaking and awe-inspiring spectacle as we witness a staggering storm take down the ship Pi is aboard.
Once the storm clears, the visuals appear to become even more striking, with a wide range of animals and beautiful landscapes gracing the screen as Pi embarks on an epic adventure. In the capable hands of Ang Lee, the film possesses firepower in both character representation and, as the trailer proves, a superlative visual aspect.
