WB has released another trailer for director Ron Howard‘s (Rush, Thor) In the Heart of the Sea, the Moby Dick-style action adventure film starring Chris Hemsworth.

The studio has pushed back the release of this movie nine months, from its originally slated March 13, 2015. The film is based on Nathaniel Philbrick‘s book ‘In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex,’ which follows a whaling ship that go up against their prey and are stranded at sea.

Check out te trailer below for the December 11 release that also stars Benjamin Walker, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, and Jordi Molla.

The CGIs yet don’t look too good. Hopefully it’ll get sorted by the time the movie comes out.

 Moby Dick-Style 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. “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.
