Not one single word is spoken in the first ever trailer for Ang Lee's Life of Pi, which is perfect. Words could only have distracted from the insane beauty of this wildly theatrical magical realist movie. Fingers crossed, the boy and his tiger friend eventually come upon the carnivorous plants on the mystical floating islands from the original Yann Martel novel. This is what 3D was made for.

Here's the official synopsis:

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.
