"All we have is difficulty," director Ang Lee told Entertainment Weekly in last week's Fall Movie Preview issue describing the challenges of "Life of Pi," his adaptation of Yann Martel’s best-selling novel. "Water, kids, animals and 3D. Everything you should avoid in the movie business. I thought it was unmakeable, even though it's very inspiring."

20th Century Fox has been taking an unconventional approach to themarketing for "Life Of Pi" so far. After a showing at CinemaCon that wowed delegates and press alike, the studio chose to eschew more traditional trailers in favor of showing three brief clips from Ang Lee's much-anticipated adaptation of Yann Martel's beloved best-seller in front of their big 3D summer releases, to emphasize the dimensionalized aspect of the picture. And so footage was shown in front of "Prometheus," "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift." But they had to release something for a broader audience at some point, and unheralded, the first proper trailer for the film arrived online early this morning via Apple.

Tobey Maguire's career in recent years resembles a guy who won the lottery. Between 2002 and 2007, the period of the three Sam Raimi-led "Spider-Man" films, the now-37-year-old actor only worked on two films in between the trilogy -- "Seabiscuit" and the supporting role in "The Good German." Post "Spider-Man 3," the actor has all of three credits on screen. The voice work he did for "Beyond All Boundaries," his severely underrated performance in Jim Sheridan's "Brothers" and "The Details," a Weinstein Company indie that was shown at Sundance in 2011 which the studio is apparently releasing this fall via their VOD Radius shingle.

With the release of a second teaser trailer of Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" this morning, we got another look at one of the most anticipated films of the year. And with the picture already slated for an October 13th release, for some traveling film critics and fans, and those prepared to head to Italy, the Venice Film Festival could be where the film makes its world premiere, with artistic director Alberto Barbera suggesting a few weeks back that Anderson was heading to the Lido for the fest, which kicks off on August 29th.

If you went to see "Prometheus" in 3D over the past week, you might have received a little bit of a treat. With Oscar already in their eyes, 20th Century Fox has begun the long marketing road for Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi," placing a 3D sequence from the film in front of Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic (with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" also getting bonus scenes). But if you were out getting popcorn or didn't get the special scene, a very, very brief taste of some first footage has landed online.

The unexpected highlight of this year's CinemaCon was undoubtedly Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi." The industry convention (which is gaining a larger press presence year by year) found 20th Century Fox unveiling the first footage from Ang Lee's 3D project that the studio has had in development for years, with a variety of directors unable to crack it. Well, it seems Lee has not only found a way into the story based on the acclaimed novel by Yann Martel, but knocked it out of the park. Reactions were breathless, with many proclaiming after only seeing ten minutes of footage that is was going to be a major Oscar contender. And while that remains to be seen, Fox is clearly buoyed by the early word and want to start getting audiences excited too.

Only earlier today, we were thinking to ourselves: "By jove, this Christmas season at the movies is going to be an absolute clusterfuck" (and yes, the voice inside our heads is that of David Niven in "A Matter Of Life And Death"). Last Christmas was pretty bad on its own, when films like "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," "War Horse," "The Adventures of Tintin" and "We Bought A Zoo" all cannibalized each other, and this summer, we're already seeing at the box office the effects of one massive hit overwhelming the competition, as "The Avengers" decimates "Dark Shadows," "The Dictator" and "Battleship" beneath it.
