Cost Plus World Market to Launch "Life of Pi" Collection
November 13, 2012,
OAKLAND, Calif.-Cost Plus World Market is partnering with 20th Century Fox on a line of products, including home decor, based on the soon-to-be-released movie "The Life of Pi."
Based on the book that has sold more than seven million copies and spent years on the bestseller lists, "Life Of Pi" takes place over three continents, two oceans, many years and a wide universe of imagination. The story centers on a young man who survives a disaster at sea and embarks on an adventure while forging a connection with another survivor...a fearsome Bengal tiger. The movie will be released Nov. 21.
Said World Market CEO Barry Feld, "Cost Plus World Market is a natural fit to partner with 20th Century Fox on the release of "Life Of Pi". We sell a number of items from around the world, including India, and our merchandise assortment reflects the film's themes of discovery. During this holiday season, our "Life Of Pi" shop will offer unique gifts that can't be found elsewhere."
