Just when you thought In The Heart Of The Sea had sunk to the deepest depths of the ocean along comes a brand new trailer like Doug McClure discovering Atlantis!Pardon the punt much of the trailer might be blubber to many but Empire magazine have went of there way to help us understand what the trailer was all about. When the film is based around the origins of Herman Melville‘s finest novel Moby Dick, it’s going to be a epic film, so who better to give us the lowdown? Ron Howard.
In this 8 minute video the In The Heart Of The Sea director obliges with a breakdown of the latest trailer with it’s key point s….
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.
In The Heart Of The Sea will arrive in UK&Irish cinemas 26th December (USA 11th) starring Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, and Jordi Molla.
