For his follow-up to the ridiculously underrated Rush (also starring Chris Hemsworth), Ron Howard is taking on a truly powerful story. An adaptation of the Nathaniel Philbrick book, In the Heart of the Sea retells the true story that inspired Herman Melville’s classic Moby Dick. The story features the whaling ship, the Essex, as it sets sail in the early 1800s for a normal job, only to find themselves as the single target of one incredibly aggressive sperm whale. And that is only the beginning…
Chris Hemsworth leads Ron Howard’s film adaptation, with a ton of other amazingly talented actors falling in right behind him. The story is sure to be fascinating on all kind of levels, and with Howard helming the project, there’s no doubt it’ll be a visual treat. The film was suppose to be released back in March, but because of the complete confidence behind the film, Warner Bros. decided to push it back into late 2015 to give it a shot at awards season. And from everything we’ve seen, that was a very smart move.
As In the Heart of the Sea is fast approaching, we’re beginning to see many more looks at the film. Its latest batch of marketing includes the following new clips:
For a much closer look at the film, here’s a very large gallery of images recently released by WB featuring a variety of great looks at Howard’s latest epic:
