Days before its world premiere at the New York Film Festival, an extended trailer for Ang Lee's big-screen adaptation of "Life of Pi" has hit the web.

Based on Yann Martel's Booker Prize-winning novel, the movie follows Pi (Suraj Sharma), a zookeeper's son, who finds himself adrift on a small lifeboat after his ship was destroyed in a storm. He, of course, is not quite alone: Pi is accompanied by a a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a not-so-friendly Bengal tiger -- all of whom are fighting for their survival.

Check out the new spellbinding trailer above. "Life of Pi," starring Sharma, Tobey Maguire, Gerard Depardieu and Irrfan Khan, bows at NYFF this Friday and hits theaters November 21.
