Final Trailer for Ron Howard’s Action Adventure ‘In the Heart of the Sea’

New England Whaling Ship

Warner Bros. Pictures has released the final trailer for director Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea, the Chris Hemsworth starring action adventure on the high seas.

Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s nonfiction book of the same name, the film also stars Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, and Jordi Mollà, and hits 3D and 2D theaters and IMAX 3D on December 11, 2015. Howard directs from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt, story by Leavitt and Rick Jaffa & Amanda Silver.

Here’s the brand new final trailer for the film about the New England whaling ship Essex which was assaulted by a massive whale with an almost human sense of vengeance. This is the last footage you’ll see until Howard’s movie is released in December. The film was originally slated to open in March, but the studio had moved In the Heart of the Sea to December, setting it up for 2015 Oscar season.

Good heavens! This would have been right up my alley, but they’ve destroyed the photography with that teal and orange look. CGI looks very good though. Despite all that cutting and noise it still looks pretty borring. I really hope it’s because they’ve stuck to the source material to preserve the realism and emotion of the men involved in the tragedy.

Ron Howard's Action Adventure

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.
