A whale of a film (lol).
Anyone else completely forget about this film? No slight against Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea, which looks fantastic, it’s just that the last time we posted a trailer for it was almost a year ago. We’re hoping that the delayed release date has more to do with the studio’s hopes regarding the Hollywood awards season rather than any concerns of quality. By the looks of it, it’s the former because the flick looks like an absolute ripper.
Chris Hemsworth versus a whale. We’re assuming that’s all the filmmakers needed to say in the pitch meeting to get this bad boy greenlit. It’s all we need to know. It’s all you need to know. We’re all in, Hollywood. Chris Hemsworth versus a damn whale.
“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 definitely set for release in December, 2015.
