Yahoo! posted the new trailer for All is Lost starring Robert Redford and directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call).  In the film, Redford plays a man fighting for survival as he becomes lost at sea.  Judging from the trailer, this looks to be quite a nail biter, and as a fan of containment thrillers, I’m very excited to check it out.

All is Lost is set to hit theaters October 18th, hit the break for the synopsis and trailer.

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.
