Life Of Pi Trailer

It's been teased at online, and finally we get a look at Ang Lee's upcoming movie based on the book of the same name, by Yann Martel.

Life of Pi is the story of 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.

I was a big fan of the book when it came out in 2001 and won the Man Booker Prize the following year.

Life of Pi has a UK release date of 21 December 2012. I'll be seeing that at Christmas then!

Man Of Steel Teaser Trailer

Henry Cavill is next up as Superman after Brandon Routh's attempt at playing the Man of Steel.

Bringing out the big guns by putting up the names of director Zack Snyder (Watchmen & 300) and produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy) this is just a short snippet to tease us ahead of it's June 14th 2013 release. Looks like an episode of Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch.

I like the sonic boom as Superman flies out of the clouds - I hope Snyder does us proud!

Does Batman Die In The Dark Knight Rises - Spoiler Alert

Does Batman Die in The Dark Knight Rises?

Does Batman die in The Dark Knight Rises? This seems to be the question on everyone's lips after David Letterman publicly declared that Batman was dead on his show last week. Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy may be over, but that does not mean someone else cannot pick up the mantle and continue the adventures.

Spoilers ahead - DO NOT read unless you have seen the Dark Knight Rises!

Oz The Great And Powerful Trailer

Disney and Sam Raimi have finally released a trailer for their Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz The Great And Powerful.

The trailer may start out in black & white, in a 4:3 ratio, but once the scene switches from Kansas to Oz and the big pushes of "Director of the Spider-Man Trilogy" Sam Raimi and "Producer of Alice In Wonderland" Joe Roth come in, the trailer switches to 16:9 and in full rich colour, showing what we can expect in 2013.

What do you think? I say, bring on the flying monkeys!
