If you went to see "Prometheus" in 3D over the past week, you might have received a little bit of a treat. With Oscar already in their eyes, 20th Century Fox has begun the long marketing road for Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi," placing a 3D sequence from the film in front of Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic (with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" also getting bonus scenes). But if you were out getting popcorn or didn't get the special scene, a very, very brief taste of some first footage has landed online.

If you went to see "Prometheus" in 3D over the past week, you might have received a little bit of a treat. With Oscar already in their eyes, 20th Century Fox has begun the long marketing road for Ang Lee's "Life Of Pi," placing a 3D sequence from the film in front of Ridley Scott's sci-fi epic (with "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and "Ice Age: Continental Drift" also getting bonus scenes). But if you were out getting popcorn or didn't get the special scene, a very, very brief taste of some first footage has landed online.

The studio has launched the official website for the film and it kicks off with a brief look at a surprised Suraj Sharma and a roaring Bengal tiger. This would actually make a nice update to the MGM logo...Anyway, that's all there is too it and we realize, that a few seconds of footage isn't exactly enthralling. But these banners for the movie also on the site are pretty nifty and certainly tease that the world Yann Martel conjured up in his novel, will be creatively realized on screen.

Co-starring Irrfan Khan, Gérard Depardieu, Tobey Maguire, Adil Hussain, and Shravanthi Sainath Tabu, "Life of Pi" starts gunning for awards on November 21st. Watch below. [SlashFilm]
