‘LIFE OF PI’ Journeys Onto Blu-ray This March

Life of Pi was a film I was really happy to embrace.  This is the story, based off the bestselling novel (claimed to be unfilmable for a long time), which chronicles the journey of Pi, a young boy who is stranded at sea, along with a tiger.  I saw it multiple times in theaters, namely because the 3D experience was among the best I have seen in a theater and wanted to give it a few goes before it left the big screen.  Everyone will soon be able to see the beauty of this film (Oscars for Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects are practically in the bag), as it arrives on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD on March 12.  Continue on to learn more details about this upcoming release, which is packed with special features.
