Warner Bros. Pictures delivers trailer #2 of the upcoming Ron Howard-directed adventure, 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 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 go on to inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But… that told only half the story.
The film 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.
In the Heart of the Sea opens on March 13 in theaters and IMAX.
