All Is Lost trailer: but where is the tiger?

Introducing Robert Redford as Tom Hanks in The Perfect Castaway.

But I kid the movie. This looks harrowing. I love how the trailer is almost free of dialogue… as I imagine the film will be, too, since Redford is all alone in the middle of the ocean.

Hmm. Is there something in the zeitgeist that’s prompting movies about desolation and survival in harsh conditions? (I’m thinking of Gravity, opening around the same time, about astronauts stranded in orbit outside their ship. And there was Life of Pi last year.) Are we all feeling metaphorically adrift and vulnerable these days? I know I am…
