The First Trailer for Ang Lee’s Life of Pi


20th Century Fox has released the first trailer for Ang Lee’s adaptation of Yann Martel’s bestselling novel Life of Pi.

The film stars Suraj Sharma as a young man who ends up sharing a lifeboat with a zebra and a hungry Bengal tiger after surviving the sinking of a freighter ship in a thunderstorm. The film also stars Tobey Maguire, Irffan Khan, Gerard Depardieu and Adil Hussain.

The first trailer is very similar to the montage of scenes shown at CinemaCon earlier this year, setting up Pi’s journey at sea then cutting to a quick glimpse of the type of visuals we can expect from the Oscar-winning director’s latest venture.

You can view a hi-res version of the trailer over at iTunes Movie Trailers or check it out in the video player below.

Life of Pi is scheduled for a Thanksgiving release in 2D and 3D theaters on November 21.
