Ship to Thor.
A year ago, In The Heart of the Sea may have barely registered on our radar, so insignificant have we found much of Ron Howard’s recent work (not to impugn some of her earlier films, which are top notch). And then Rush was released and proved that Ol’ Ginger Guts still had it in him. We honestly don’t even like cars, and Rush was just awesome. Howard and Rush star Chris Hemsworth are reteaming for a true story involving boats and whales and harpooning and Chris Hemsworth with a funny accent. And we’re excited.
“In 1820, the whaleship Essex is crewed by Captain George Pollard, Jr., first mate Owen Chase, second mate Matthew Joy, and cabin boy Thomas Nickerson. During their voyage, the ship is struck by a large bull sperm whale, ultimately leaving its crew shipwrecked at sea for 90 days over a thousand miles from home. After the attack, the crew sails for South America and is forced to become cannibalistic.“
In the Heart of the Sea stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy and Tom Holland and is set for release in March, 2015.
