In the Heart of the Sea is an upcoming historical biographical disaster drama-thriller film directed by Ron Howard. The film stars Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, and Tom Holland. It is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s 2000 non-fiction book of the same name, about the sinking of the whaleship Essex. The film is scheduled for release on December 11, 2015.
In 1820, the whaleship Essex is crewed by Captain George Pollard, Jr., first officer Owen Chase, second officer Matthew Joy, and cabin boy Thomas Nickerson. During their voyage, the ship is sunk when it is rammed by a very large and enraged bull sperm whale, ultimately leaving its crew shipwrecked at sea for 90 days more than a thousand miles from land. After the attack, the crew sails for South America and is forced to resort to cannibalism.
