The clip is brief, straightforward, and gets across everything you need to know. With Pi Patel (Suraj Sharma) stranded at sea, he puts a missive in a bottle hoping that someone, somewhere will find him and help him. "My name is Pi Patel. I have been in a shipwreck. I am on a lifeboat alone with a tiger. Please send help," he writes. And as the scene ends, we get a brief moment with the tiger who, at first, poses a real threat to the young man struggling to survive.
Calling it "a harrowing journey of survival, self-discovery and connection," we think this is one you need put on your must-see list before the end of the year. "Life Of Pi" opens on November 21st. [Moviefone/Photos via Kinopoisk]
