New ‘Life of Pi’ Clip: Message in a Bottle

'Life of Pi'
20th Century Fox

Ang Lee’s adaptation of ‘Life of Pi‘ garnered rave reviews after its premiere at the New York Film Festival, with many lauding its celebration of the human spirit as well as its technical prowess. (Its use of 3D is said to rival ‘Avatar.’) While this was apparent in the official movie trailer and clips, an additional brief peek into this fantastical world Lee created has just hit and it’s definitely worth your 54-seconds.

Based on the footage shown courtesy of Moviefone, this scene takes place not too long after our hero Pi (Suraj Sharma) has found himself floating in the middle of the ocean after a shipwreck. His only companion, for the moment, is a Bengal Tiger, and the two are just learning to co-exist. Naturally, though, Pi needs to find help any way that he can. A message in a bottle is just as good an idea as any.

‘Life of Pi’, based on Yann Martel’s novel, hits theaters on November 21st.  Here’s the synopsis:

The son of a zookeeper, Pi Patel has an encyclopedic knowledge of animal behavior and a fervent love of stories. When Pi is 16, his family emigrates from India to North America aboard a Japanese cargo ship, along with their zoo animals bound for new homes.

The ship sinks during a storm, leaving Pi alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a wounded zebra and Richard Parker, a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon the wild cat has dispatched all but Pi, whose fear, knowledge and cunning allow him to coexist with Richard Parker for 227 days while lost at sea.
