Trailer Watch: Ang Lee’s Life of Pi

I didn’t fall completely in love with Yann Martel’s novel Life of Pi — there were parts I loved and parts I didn’t, but the ending pulled it all together for me, even after a late turn in the story kind of pushed me away.

I am, though, a fan of Ang Lee (when he’s not directing Hulk), and the trailer for its long-awated feature adaptation looks beautiful. The big question mark will be the script by David Magee (Finding Neverland) and how well Ang Lee can handle the tone of the books… trickier parts. (I think there’s a little irony in the choice of David Magee, but it would be a bit of a spoiler to say why, unfortunately.)

Alongside Sharma as Pi, Tobey Maguire, Irrfan Khan (Amazing Spider-Man) and Gérard Depardieu round out the cast. The film will hit the US on November 21, 2012. Definitely gunning for an Oscar. (Oh yeah: it’ll be in 3D, of course.)

Trailer Watch: The AMAZING full Amazing Spider-Man trailer

Holy cow. I was already kind of excited about this, but this looks beautiful. The web-slinging, the quips… this looks more like Spider-Man to me than Raimi’s movies ever did (except for the costume).

Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man will be out in theaters on July 3, 2012.
