Warner Bros. has released a new trailer for Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea,” starring Chris Hemsworth as the first mate of the besieged New England whaling ship Essex.

The trailer focuses on the 1819 attack on the Essex by a mammoth whale, which inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.” It also shows the wreckage of the vessel and the desperation of the remaining sailors.

“We will survive,” Hemsworth intones at the end of the trailer.

Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson and Jordi Molla also star. The movie is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book “In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex.”

In the Heart of the Sea Trailer: Chris Hemsworth Is Literally Going to Punch a Whale

5 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The first trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea emphasized the mystery and majesty of the open ocean — a fine angle, sure, but when you cast Chris Hemsworth in your sailing movie, you don't do it to see him give lengthy philosophical monologues. You cast Chris Hemsworth in your sailing movie so that, when it comes time for our seafaring heroes to go toe-to-fin with an angry whale, you think they might actually have a chance. If you've read the book this movie's based on [spoiler alert], you know they really don't, but nothing wrong with giving people a little bit of optimism before all the shipwrecks and starvation.  »

Heart-Pounding New Trailer for In The Heart Of The Sea with Chris Hemsworth

6 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Director Ron Howard's new film In the Heart of the Sea looks awesome and intense! I'm really excited about seeing this epic adventure up on the big screen. The film is based on a book by Nathaniel Philbrick that tells the terrifying true story that inspired the classic tale of Moby Dick. it follows a whaling ship named the Essex, which was stalked and annihilated by a sperm whale in 1820. The crew was stranded thousands of miles from home, and they spent 90 days lost at sea doing everything they could to survive. I've got to say that this looks like it's going to be a filmmaking masterpiece. 

The cast of the film includes Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson, and Jordi Molla. Here's the official synopsis:

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could »

Chris Hemsworth Isn't Afraid in New 'In the Heart of the Sea' Trailer

7 hours ago | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Say you're scared!" When people go whale watching, they tend to be disappointed, so much that the hobby should probably just be called boat sitting. But back in 1820, a whaling ship had no trouble finding the giant sea mammals. In fact, they found one that they simply could not escape. In the Heart of the Sea is the tale of Moby Dick, and the encounter the Essex had with the massive sperm whale at sea. Chris Hemsworth leads his crew with unfathomable courage as the crew is forced to drift for more than ninety days in three tiny whaleboats, succumbing to weather, hunger, disease, and the monster himself. Watch it! Here's the new trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea, originally from Apple: You can still watch the first trailer for In the Heart of the Sea right here.

Watch: Chris Hemsworth Is Gonna Need A Bigger Boat In New Trailer For 'In The Heart Of The Sea'

7 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Lately, Ron Howard has been tackling genres not especially known for making the easiest box office bank. The very underrated "Rush" arrived last year, and in just a few months he'll reteam with Chris Hemsworth, travel back in time and get out on open water with "In The Heart Of Sea." Can the duo make it work this time? Well, a new trailer is here, and you're going to need a bigger boat. Co-starring Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw and Benjamin Walker, the movie tells the true story that inspired Herman Melville's masterpiece "Moby Dick." And while Hemsworth isn't playing Queequeq (we'd pay to see that), he does play a hearty sailor who leads everyone else in battling the giant whale who looks like it could flip the entire ship just by flicking tail (in case you're wondering, Whishaw plays the writer). So, battling Loki, saving the internet next month in "Blackhat, »

Chris Hemsworth Is Up Against A Force Of Nature In New Trailer For In The Heart Of The Sea

7 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. has unveiled the second trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart of the Sea, which pits Chris Hemsworth and his ragtag crew against an unrelenting force of nature in the form of a mammoth, seemingly-vengeful whale.

Showcasing more of the characters on this occasion than the marauding, elusive behemoth, this latest clip shines a light on the brave human crew that risked their lives on the expedition — one which would see them cast astray for close to 90 days, fighting against hunger, dehydration and each other.

Taking inspiration from Nathaniel Philbrick’s eponymous novel, Howard’s sea-faring epic will see grizzled first mate Owen Chase (Hemsworth) embark on a daring adventure that will have him come up against Moby Dick in the South Pacific ocean circa 1820. The Thor actor will be joined by Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy and Ben Whishaw.

New Trailer for Ron Howard’s In The Heart Of The Sea Teases a Gorgeous, Terrifying Ocean-Set Adventure

8 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new international trailer for director Ron Howard’s adaptation of the Nathaniel Philbrick non-fiction book In the Heart of the Sea has landed online.  The film tells 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, and the harrowing true story served as the basis for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  I was a big fan of what Howard put together for his previous film, Rush, and it looks like he's on a roll with this follow-up.  Once again reuniting with cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, they appear to capture the terrifying nature of this sea expedition in visceral fashion, putting the audience right in the middle of the drama that ensues. Check out the new In the Heart of the Sea trailer after the jump. »

Second 'Heart of the Sea' Trailer with Chris Hemsworth

8 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just two weeks after an international trailer surfaced, Warner Bros. has released a new domestic trailer for In the Heart of the Sea, starring Chris Hemsworth. After fighting alien warriors and several other enemies as Marvel's Thor, the actor faces perhaps his biggest foe yet, in the form of a massive sperm whale in this adaptaton of Nathaniel Philbrick's book. If the footage in this trailer looks a bit familiar, it's because this true story served as the inspiration for Herman Melville's literary classic Moby Dick.

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. 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 »

Warner Bros. has released a brand new trailer for Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea telling the story that inspired Herman Melville's "Moby Dick". Set 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. 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.

Second Trailer: "In the Heart of the Sea"

9 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It's a beloved book, and the first trailer for Ron Howard's film adaptation of "In the Heart of the Sea" was one of the best trailers of the year. It showed a promise of a more stylised take than you'd expect from Howard, the lush visuals more akin to old oil paintings and myths of sea-faring than expected - though some of the effects looked a tad dodgy.

The new second trailer is about on par with the effects looking decidedly better this time around. The trailer also takes a bit more time unfolding the story of the Essex, the whaling ship sunk by one of the giant beasts and how the crew were forced onto whaling boats and ultimately resorted to an act of cannibalism to survive. The tale inspired Herman Melville to pen "Moby Dick".

The international trailer for In the Heart of the Sea showcases the action

11 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

When the first trailer debuted for Ron Howard's In The Heart Of The Sea, it arrived with a fairly formulaic presentation. We saw the crew of the Essex, including stars Chris Hemsworth and Cillian Murphy, saying goodbye to their families and beginning a long journey that would end in tragedy. The trailer paid special attention to the Godzilla-like tease of the whale that would shipwreck the crew. This new international trailer jumps right into the action and pulls no punches.

Roger Deakins recalls 'The Man Who Wasn't There' and film noir favorites

19 December 2014 12:17 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It seemed this year that if any artist was due for the retrospective treatment, it was "Unbroken" cinematographer Roger Deakins. While I of course did not address all of the 50-plus films he has shot throughout his illustrious career during a recent extended interview, I settled on a few in particular that I think represent a nice cross-section of his work. Each of them — "Nineteen Eighty-Four," "Sid and Nancy," "Barton Fink," "The Shawshank Redemption," "Kundun," "The Man Who Wasn't There" and "The Village" — will get their own space in the next few days. 2001 was an interesting year for Roger Deakins. With John Nash biopic "A Beautiful Mind" — the only time he's ever worked with director Ron Howard — he shot the year's Best Picture winner, while his on-going collaboration with the Coen brothers' yielded "The Man Who Wasn't There" and the chance to work on a cinematographer's dream: a film noir. »

New Pictures from 'Star Wars 7', 'Insurgent', 'Furious 7', 'Ted 2', 'Jurassic World' and More

Photo: Walt Disney Pictures Entertainment Weekly has released several new images from upcoming 2015 releases including the likes of some artwork from Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens as seen directly above as well as pics from Ted 2, The Divergent Series: Insurgent, Furious 7, Jurassic World and many more. Full disclosure, just from looking at these pictures I wouldn't have been able to figure out what some of them are from, but lucky for you this isn't a "Guess the Movies" installment. Here's a look at several of the new pictures along with a little commentary of my own over the course of the next couple pages. I would have guessed this first picture below was for a Baby Mama sequel I didn't yet know existed -- in which case I'd have yelled, "Whoop whoop!" -- but alas, it's for a film called Sisters (previously known as The Nest »

Interview: Anson ‘Potsie’ Williams on His Book ‘Singing to a Bulldog’

18 December 2014 10:20 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – When is comes to appreciating life, one great practitioner is Anson Williams, better known as the character “Potsie” from the 1970s TV series “Happy Days.” Williams wants to remind everybody to “pay it forward,” as he does in highlighting his unlikely mentor in his new book, “Singing to a Bulldog.”

The focus for Anson Williams is on Willie Turner, a custodian he worked with in a department store. Willie gave the 15-year-old Williams life lessons, as he was navigating the road to being an actor. Even though Turner was illiterate and a drinker, he stuck with and guided Williams, which provided the impetus for the young actor and singer to find his path.
