In the Heart of the Sea (2015)
Apparently Chris Hemsworth and Ron Howard enjoyed their time together while making Rush, because they have reteamed for the nautical actioner In the Heart of the Sea. A full synopsis follows (via Warner Bros. Pictures):
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.
In the Heart of the Sea is directed by Ron Howard from a screenplay by Charles Leavitt, based on the book In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick. In addition to Chris Hemsworth, the film also stars Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, and Brendan Gleeson.
In the Heart of the Sea is scheduled for release on March 13, 2015.
