Teaser Trailer For Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea'

Warner Bros. just released the first teaser trailer for In the Heart of the Sea from director Ron Howard’s upcoming drama.  Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book of the same name, the film revolves around the story of the whaling ship Essex, which in 1819 was rammed by an angry whale in the South Pacific.  The surviving crew drifted for 90 days in three tiny whaleboats and encountered disease, hunger, and eventually cannibalism.  It’s a heartwrenching true story, and it served as the basis for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  Howard’s amazing cast is led by Chris Hemsworth as the ship’s first mate, Tom Holland as a young cabin boy who eventually tells his tale to Melville once he’s an adult, and Benjamin Walker as Captain George Pollard Jr.  All of the actors lost a significant amount of weight for the film. 

 
 

The film also stars Cillian MurphyBen Whishaw, and Jordi Molla.  In the Heart of the Sea opens in theaters on March 13, 2015.
