Universal Pictures Ireland has released a new clip from Margin Call director J.C. Chandor’s All Is Lost. The footage shows one of the best scenes in the film as Robert Redford’s life-raft is surrounded by sharks.
The film stars Redford as a man cut adrift, alone in a 39-foot yacht and in the path of a storm.
All Is Lost is out in Ireland on December 26th.
Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.
Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
