IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, directed by Ron Howard, is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling novel about the dramatic true journey of the whaling ship Essex. It stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw and Brendan Gleeson.

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 inspire Melville’s Moby-Dick. 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 are 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.
