This is what I thought when I first saw the trailer, in the movie; Bait that I watched few months ago:
"pretty nice graphics. and I assume it's about someone got lost at the sea, got friend with a tiger, arrived at unknown island (Survivor like, Robinson Crusoe)."
but, at the end of the trailer, the title of the movie appeared: Life of Pi
"ehhh...Pi? π? 3.14159..<insert infinite numbers here> ? is this a story of a mathematical symbol or what...? maybe it's the name of the tiger?? cuz, whose people name be a "Pi"?"
So many speculations I did just based on one trailer lulz. And I didn't even care to google about the movie, because it didn't interest me that much despite all the question marks.
Before I start, a synopsis from imdb:
A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor ... a fearsome Bengal tiger. -imdb
