In the lead up to the release of “Life of Pi”, I openly wondered why the trailers focused so much on the visuals and gave us so little of the story. In actuality, the trailers gave us essentially ALL of the story. A young man escapes a sinking cargo-liner aboard a lifeboat with a Bengal tiger on board. He then struggles to coexist with the animal and survive the ordeal.
The true subject of the film, however, is something we rarely get in movies, and thus something the film would be reluctant to “sell” in its promos.
Ok, folks, here we are! One of the major movie release seasons of the year is upon us, The Holiday Movie Season!
The Holidays started a little early this year, with “Skyfall” (undeniably a major release) opening in the first week of November. So we’re underway! Between now and the end of the year, we’ll see some of the biggest films on the 2012 docket get released, including the conclusion to the “Twilight” Saga, “The Hobbit”, and “Django Unchained”!
