Warner Bros. have released the first teaser for Ron Howard’s seabound drama.
Packing more sperm that Ron Jeremy, In the Heart of the Sea is the true story of the whaleship Essex, which was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale (stop sniggering) in 1820. The shipwrecked crew were adrift for 90 days and resorted to cannibalism. Om nom nom. The story of the Essex was the inspiration for Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick.
Howard has assembled an impressive supporting cast, including our Cillian Murphy and the untouchable Ben Whishaw.
And Andy Serkis is playing the whale.*
*(Andy Serkis is not playing the whale).
In the Heart of the Sea is released on 13th March 2015.
