Fox has released the first trailer for Life of Pi that’s just as beautiful and surreal as you might expect from director Ang Lee’s adaptation of the acclaimed fantasy-adventure novel by Yann Martel.
It’s the spiritual story of an Indian boy nicknamed Pi who survives a disaster at sea only to be marooned on a lifeboat for 227 days with a Bengal tiger named Richard Parker.
Watch the trailer below, or in HD at Apple.com. Starring Suraj Sharma, Gérard Depardieu, Irrfan Khan and Tabu, Life of Pi opens Nov. 21.
Director Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) creates a groundbreaking movie event about a young man who survives a tragic disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While marooned on a lifeboat, he forms an amazing and unexpected connection with the ship’s only other survivor — a fearsome Bengal tiger.
