In the final trailer for In the Heart of the Sea Ben Whishaw as Herman Melville is introduced, narrating the spot. In a thrilling and awe- inspiring way In the Heart of the Sea brings to life the true encounter that inspired one of the greatest stories of all time. Utilizing 3D, from what we can see the film will feature amazing special effects and breathtaking images, including stunning cinematography. Having inspired Herman Melville’s Moby Dick, In the Heart of the Sea looks at the aftermath, the story of the ship’s surviving crew.
Again, we see Chris Hemsworth in a role that seems tailored for him and almost reminiscent of past Aussies in a similar role. Hemsworth stars as first mate Owen Chase. The cast also includes, Cillian Murphy as second mate Matthew Joy, Benjamin Walker as the Captain George Pollard, Tom Holland as the young seaman Tom Nickerson, Charlotte Riley as Peggy, Michelle Fairley as Mrs. Nickerson, Brendan Gleeson as the same man 30 years later (divulging these events to Melville) and Jordi Mollà as the Captain of the Archimedes.
The film, directed by Ron Howard is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex, about the true journey of the New England whaling ship Essex in 1819. The main event occurs in the winter of 1820, when the Essex was attacked by something no one could believe, ‘a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.’
In the Heart of the Sea looks to be the action adventure blockbuster that will thrill and excite us this holiday season.
