Behind the Scenes of 'Life of Pi'


Academy-award winning director Ang Lee is known for his dedication to getting things perfect before they are captured on film and without doubt Life of Pi will have no shortage of scenes that make you go "wow." Don't be surprised if cinematographer Claudio Miranda (Tron: Legacy, Curious Case of Benjamin Button) takes home an Oscar for his work on Pi.  He has been nominated before, but given all the raves the film has received from screenings, this year could very well be the one for him.

It is easy to forget that with all of the techniques made available with CGI and companies like Weta that some shots still require physical work and finesse to get it right. Like filming in an Olympic sized pool. So that we have beautiful scenes like these.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
