When Chris Hemsworth isn’t daring the other Avengers to try and lift his hammer, he’s racing fast cars and shouting into the stormy waves at the white whale. To be clear, he’s not playing Captain Ahab in his new movie In the Heart of the Sea, but we are talking about the white whale.
Based on the
novel book of the same name, the movie follows the crew of the Essex led by Hemsworth (who seems to have studied at the Russell Crowe School of Accents), who are besieged by a real dick of a whale. Once shipwrecked, they must do “unthinkable” things to survive. So… cannibalism?
But mostly you’re just watching this trailer for the moment when Hemsworth picks up a harpoon to show that whale who’s boss. (Also, how cheesy is that line “…and demon” followed by the murderous whale tail?)
Let’s not forget to add that Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) and Cillian Murphy (The Dark Knight Rises) are also on the crew, so the pedigree of actors in this film is honestly pretty amazing. The movie comes out March 13, 2015.
