“Hey, we need to promote this new Ang Lee movie.” “Sure, dude, send out that picture of the tiger on the boat.” Based on the novel by Yann Martel, Life of Pi is about a zookeeper’s son who gets stranded on a boat with a Bengal tiger. Oh, and a hyena, an orangutan, and a zebra (not pictured). Will they all get along? Will there be wacky hijinks? The book is a sort of fanciful analogy that examines three religions – Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. Suraj Sharma stars as Pi. I don’t know the name of the tiger. This promotional image has to be one of the most bizarre things to ever come out of a major studio. The film is scheduled to be released on December 21st.
