The movie, which has a new trailer, is unrelenting in showing the savagery of the sea. Chris Hemsworth leads the embattled crew, as they attempt to survive the attack, try (and fail) to save the ship, then face the cold, vast ocean on three small rescue boats.
The whale attack is just the start of the crew's horrific ordeal — you can imagine what happens when a bunch of men are stuck in close quarters, with no food or water. This isn't just man vs. nature; it's man vs. man. Can they hold onto their humanity and get home at the same time? The questions the movie seems to pose, as well as the epic scenery, is all classic Ron Howard.
"In the Heart of the Sea" also stars Benjamin Walker, Tom Holland, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, and Ben Whishaw, and opens December 11.
