Picture of Robert Redford in All is Lost

The official trailer for "All is Lost" is finally here. The film is written and directed by J.C. Chandor ("Margin Call") and has garnered enthusiastic reviews at Cannes. Robert Redford stars as a man lost at sea after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. Not only that, but he unknowingly sails into a violent storm. The sailor must now rely on his intuition and strength to survive. The film is a meditation of sorts on mortality and Redford is said to have almost no dialogue at all for the film's entire running time. "All is Lost" opens on October 25, 2013.

Watch the trailer after the jump.

Official Synopsis

"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."
