When Warner Bros. decided to pull Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea from its March 2015 release date and push it back all the way to December, we all were wondering why. But as we really sat on it, we realized that WB made an incredibly smart move as this film has award potential written all over it. So over the past few months we’ve seen absolutely nothing on the film after seeing so much, until today that is.
Warner Bros. has (again) released a brand new trailer for Ron Howard’s epic adventure film, which stars Chris Hemsworth. Yes, we’ve already seen two trailers for the movie, but that was months ago. Plus, the way this trailer is cut makes it feel completely new and gets you just as excited, possibly even more than the other trailers. It looks thrilling, exciting, and absolutely stunning as far as visuals go; check it out:
This is a film I’ve been waiting over a year for. Ron Howard is one of my favorite working directors today and Chris Hemsworth is definitely on my list of favorite actors. The last film these two worked together on was Rush and look how that turned out… I would say WB made one damn good move to push the Moby Dick inspired film back to a spot where it will definitely get a lot more love.
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 hits the open water on December 11th, 2015. Directed by Ron Howard starring Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson.
