Chris Hemsworth in Ron Howard's 'In the Heart of the Sea' Trailer
"We were headed for the edge of sanity, like we were apparitions, phantoms…" Warner Bros has debuted the first teaser trailer for Ron Howard's new movie In the Heart of the Sea, adapting a book by Nathaniel Philbrick about the real-life story that inspired Moby Dick. Chris Hemsworth stars as Owen Chase, the veteran first mate of the Essex, a whaling ship that sets off with a crew to hunt down the gigantic demon of a whale haunting them. The cast includes Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw, Charlotte Riley, Tom Holland and many others. This first teaser is a rather poetic and beautiful look at the story, presenting us with a larger-than-life tale of ambition and adventure. As a first glance, this looks really good.
