Life of Pi Trailer: Tiger, Tiger Burning Bright

The Life of Pi movie feels like it's been gestating for a decade, but now there's finally a full trailer for Ang Lee's take on Yann Martel's novel. It looks bright! Bright and colorful and sea-faring. So much of the book is about religion and cultural identity, but how do you explain a few of the differences and similarities between Hinduism and Islam as experienced by an Indian preteen when instead you can show a maybe-drowning zebra, a territorial tiger, or an island full of meerkats? Such is life.
