Director Ron Howard returns to direct this new action adventure, entitled In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex.
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was attacked by a whale of mammoth size and will. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, which only told 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 film opens March 13, 2015.
