Movie Trailer - In the Heart of the Sea

Director: Ron Howard
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw
Release: March 13th, 2015

I've read Moby Dick, unabridged, and it was perhaps the most difficult read of my life.  It was painfully boring and detailed, well-written no doubt, but about a subject matter heaped with metaphors that I cared nothing about.  I like Ron Howard, and even Chris Hemsworth, but you can only make a whale so terrifying.  Perhaps the human element of the story will shine and it'll become a survival film; that I could get on board with.


  1. I love Chris Hemsworth for his good looks and sexy accent, but I'm not sure he's talented enough to carry such a dramatic story. But has Ron Howard ever made a bad movie? Could be interesting...

  2. The Missing wasn't any good, and I assume The Dilemma isn't, but other than that Howard is a strong director.
