Chris Hemsworth, In the Heart of the Sea

Trailer Time: In the Heart of the Sea Trailer #2 (2015)

I’ll put up Killing Time’s most anticipated films of 2015 this coming week, but I’m fairly certain this will be on it.  Based on the fantastic book by Nathaniel Philbrick, Ron Howard directs Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw and Michelle Fairley in the true story of a whaling vessel in 1820 that was trapped at sea by a single sperm whale.  Many think the incident was the impetus for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  I’d love to see Howard get his game back and with Blackhat, In The Heart of the Sea and Avengers: Age of Ultron, 2015 may be the year of Chris Hemsworth.

  1. This looks GREAT. I always thought there needed to be a modern-day retelling of Moby Dick on screen, but why not tell this lesser-known story instead? New(er) is always good. The book is fascinating and I still have tremendous faith in Howard… he lost his stride when he tried to capture Dr. Suess and Dan Brown (and discovered there were at least two types of movies he couldn’t get right) but otherwise the man is the biggest chameleon in the annals of directordom.


    1. I’m rooting for Howard to come back. He’s directed some of my favorite films and I absolutely encourage anyone who wants a fascinating non-fiction read to pick up any of Nathaniel Philbrick’s works.
