Harpoon yourself on the first official UK trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea and watch Thor Chris Hemsworth take on the monster sperm whale, the true tale that inspired Moby Dick.
After their previous collaboration with the brilliant Rush it was only a matter of time before Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth would work again.Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex whale ship, and looks Hemsworth would dearly love get his hands on his Asgardian Hammer.
In The Heart Of The Sea is set in the winter of 1820 and the Essex Whaling ship that faced an tragedy when they confronted a mammoth Sperm whale. Those fortunate to survive find themselves group to together with limited supplies,braving storms, starvation, panic and despair. As the captain seeks a route of escape his first mate seeks revenge to take the whale down.
Visually this looks breathtaking, the tone of the trailer sits nicely as an narrative tease, not revealing to much in the scares. The trailer certainly builds characters as the main focus whilst glimpsing into the the action and destruction that will follow the group, typical Howard. Impressive cast here’s hoping the film pardon the punt isn’t a shipwreck but an entertaining ‘salty’ popcorn pre-easter treat.
In The Heart Of The Sea arrives in UK Cinemas from 13th March 2015 co-starring Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy,Tom Holland, Brendon Gleeson and Ben Whishaw as author Herman Melville who write Moby Dick.
Oscar winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind”) directs the action adventure “In the Heart of the Sea,” based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “In the Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
