Beautiful First Images & First Clip Revealed from Ang Lee's 'Life of Pi'

Few directors have captured the visual element of cinema with well-told stories and excellent acting than Ang Lee. Best known to Western audiences for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain, Lee has, for the most, done an excellent job at giving audiences the best of what cinema has to offer (omitting Hulk and Taking Woodstock, of course) .

So it shouldn't come as any surprise that the first glimpse we get for his upcoming Life of Pi is both visually intense and thoroughly cinematic.  Lee has fallen off the American movie radar since '05's Brokeback Mountain, but Life of Pi has the potential to notch up a few Oscar nominations, if for anything, visual achievement.

But what is Life of Pi? The title sounds like something proposed by a philosophical mathematician. In fact, you may remember Yann Martel's best-selling novel on which the film is based, about an Indian boy named Pi, a zookeeper's son, who finds himself in the company of a hyena, zebra, orangutan and a Bengal tiger after a shipwreck sets them adrift in the Pacific Ocean. The author is portrayed by Tobey Maguire in the film, most likely in a narrator's role, while Suraj Sharma plays the titular Pi.

The film arrives in theaters November 21 and for once, we can't wait to see this film converted to 3D. It's visual treats like Life of Pi that 3D movies were made for. Check out the new images below as well as the very brief clip that appears when you first arrive at the film's official site (which features a haunting score I've been listening to for the past half hour).
