There has not been a lot of chatter about Ron Howard’s upcoming film In the Heart of the Sea ever since it was pushed back to December from its original March release date. While some have been skeptical, most have seen the delay as a good sign that says that Warner Bros. thinks this movie will have Oscar chances. Nonetheless, as we creep closer and closer to December, a new trailer for In the Heart of the Sea was released. The movie that is based off of the real story that inspired the myth of Moby Dick seems to be an epic survival tale against a massive beast. Check out the trailer below.
In 1820, crewmen (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write “Moby-Dick.”
In the Heart of the Sea splashes into cinemas on December 11, 2015.
