Director Ang Lee won critical and commercial acclaim for his use of technology during the filming of Life of Pi. His latest film, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, is no different:
His new movie, about Iraq War heroes whisked back Stateside for a victory tour, is slated for release on Veterans Day weekend (Nov. 11). The picture blends different flavors of high-tech — 3D, 4K and high frame rates — to push filmmaking beyond anything the public has ever seen, even beyond the capacity of the world’s movie theaters. It marks Lee, who turned “Life of Pi” into a surprise global smash (and earned a directing Oscar for it) as one of the boldest explorers in cinema today.
The movie stars relative unknown Joe Alwyn, as Billy Lynn, and features performances by Vin Diesel, Steve Martin, Chris Tucker, and Kristen Stewart.
Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk hits theaters November 11, 2016.
