Introduced by director Ang Lee himself, the snippet shows Pi Patel's struggle to find food on the open sea while also dealing with a fearsome Bengal tiger on his survival boat.
Many critics and reviewers sing praises to Lee's stunning 3D work in the drama and predict that the film will become a strong contender for next year's Oscars.
It is reported that Lee decides to scrap Maguire's scene and replaces him with a new actor because the 'Spider-Man' thesp's starpower might affect other relatively unknown cast members.
Marking Lee's second film to take part at the prestigious event, 'Life of Pi' also becomes the first 3D film chosen for the Opening Night Gala presentation.
An Indian boy named Pi Patel finds himself alive in a boat with a ferocious tiger following a deadly storm that crashed his ship during his trip to Canada.
The 'Life of Pi' poster shows the titular character standing on a boat with a Bengal tiger, while the 'Canyons' one-sheet sees a Los Angeles landscape with a tagline that claims, 'IT'S NOT THE HILLS.'
The 11-second snippet of the Ang Lee-directed fantasy movie shows a glimpse at Bengal tiger named Richard Parker which attacks the titular character played by Suraj Sharma.
While Scorsese excitedly says he wants to shoot all his upcoming movies in 3D, Lee admits that he was 'very intimidated' when first using the high-definition format.
Among those are big titles like "Justice League of America", "G.I. Joe", "Thor", and "Monster Hunter."
