BOX OFFICE: Ang Lee's LIFE OF PI Passes $500 Million Mark Worldwide

The "unfilmable" fantasy-adventure film Life of Pi, directed by Ang Lee (Hulk), has crossed $500 million at the global box office, despite many saying it won't be a big money maker for the studio. More after the jump...


Director Ang Lee spent four years working on Life of Pi, a big screen adaptation of Yann Martel's novel from 2001. The picture was unfilmable according to many who tried bringing this story to the big screen. But, Lee managed to make a wonderful film that captures human emotions in a very powerful way.

The work paid off at the end, because Life of Pi got nominated for 11 Academy Awards, including "Best Picture" and "Best Director." The film is also a big box office hit for the studio, as it passed $500 million at the worldwide box office. It made $100.4 million domestically, and $401 million internationally ($90.8 million came from China). Have you seen the film? What did you think of it?

Visually, it was a breathtaking film. I really enjoyed it. It is one film that has changed my mind on 3D. I am telling anyone I talk to about the film to see it in the theater to get the full visual affect.

Amazing film. And anyway, it's based on a book.

Same same.

Best picture 2012.

Everybody saying I'm wrong: water is perhaps the most difficult thing to work with next to animals in Hollywood.

This movie, the visuals, the story, the score, absolutely terrific, even unforgettable.

Watch the movie a second time and you want to cry yo!

The film was great right until the "twist" that made me eat my hat.
