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

22 December 2014 10:52 AM, PST | 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.

Ron Howard’s true-life tale will take moviegoers »

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

22 December 2014 10:20 AM, PST | 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

22 December 2014 10:18 AM, PST | 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 »

Watch: New Trailer for Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea'

22 December 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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. Set for release on March 13, the film stars Chris Hemsworth, »

Second Trailer: "In the Heart of the Sea"

22 December 2014 9:12 AM, PST | 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".

International Teaser For In The Heart Of The Sea Pits The Man Against The Myth

9 December 2014 8:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Come 2015, Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth will set sail for the high seas for Warner Bros.’ upcoming maritime adventure, In The Heart of the Sea, which recently debuted a new international teaser.

Chronicling the true-life tale of Hemsworth’s grizzled first mate, Owen Chase, the film is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s eponymous novel which sees a ragtag crew of sailers go up against the myth known only as Moby Dick in and around 1820. Joining the Thor actor on the daring expedition are Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy and Skyfall’s own Ben Whishaw.

Moreover, In The Heart of the Sea marks Howard’s second collaboration with Hemsworth, following the pair’s work on last year’s award-winning F1 biopic, Rush. So, given that we’ve already seen the two tackle character-driven drama set against high-octane action, it’ll be fascinating to see how their latest outing is received when it makes its bow next year. »

Kojima May Have Revealed MGS5's Release Date

8 December 2014 8:25 AM, PST | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Kojima may have secretly revealed the release date to the upcoming Metal Gear.... or he may have simply been saying something a little special to the fans! 

If you know Kojima, the creator of Metal Gear, then you know every time he steps out in a press conference there is something more going on. A countdown, a secret reveal, or a blatant troll to trick the entire audience. Remember we are talking about a guy that created an entire fake studio for an elaborate trick! 

Well according to fans he is at it again. If you check out the picture above you will notice his shirt has text on it, and fans have figured out the text is in fact Swedish. Reddit user zWePoNz has suggested the text covered up by his jacket reads "tjugoandra den sjätte."

This translates to "twenty Second" and "sixth." Now here is where theories come flying in from every angle, »

Roger Deakins on WWII, the ocean's 'endless prison' and inspirations for 'Unbroken'

2 December 2014 4:32 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"The Shawshank Redemption," "Fargo," "Kundun," "O Brother, Where Art Thou?," "The Man Who Wasn't There," "No Country for Old Men," "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford," "The Reader," "True Grit," "Skyfall," "Prisoners." Surely one of those films won the Oscar for Best Cinematography, right? Nope. Roger Deakins has 11 Oscar nominations but, to date, has not been granted access to the Dolby Theater stage (or the Kodak Theater…or the Shrine Auditorium…he's a veteran of multiple Oscar venues at this point). Could that change with Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken?" Possibly. Deakins pushed himself quite a bit on the film and played with a few aesthetic ideas he hadn't really dabbled in before. It's only the second time he's worked in the war genre (after 2005's "Jarhead"), but he paints Jolie's canvas with striking hues of contrast. For a film that could be a formidable prestige Oscar player, »

Review Round-Up: The Pigman from Das Cabinet to The Void

18 October 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With so many films released on the run up to Halloween it’s been hard to keep up with reviews, so we’re going to play catch-up with another review round-up looking at some recent releases in brief. This time round we have reviews of Das Cabinet Des Dr. Caligari, Saints & Soldiers: The Void, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The Pigman Murders.

Synopsis: At a local carnival in a small German town, hypnotist Dr. Caligari presents the somnambulist Cesare, who can purportedly predict the future of curious fairgoers. But at night, the doctor wakes Cesare from his sleep to enact his evil bidding…

Watch: Chris Hemsworth in First ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ Trailer

18 October 2014 1:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“We were headed for the edge of sanity, like we were apparitions, phantoms,” Brendan Gleeson narrates over haunting vfx in the first trailer for Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea.” “Trust gave way to doubt. Hope to superstition.”

Chris Hemsworth battles a bull sperm whale — and personal demons — in the movie based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book, “In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex,” about the real-life story that inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”

Hemsworth stars as the first mate of the Essex, a ship struck by a gigantic whale in 1819, leaving its crew shipwrecked and stranded for 90 days, thousands of miles from home. After the attack, the sailors head to South America and are forced to resort to cannibalism to survive.
