Lately, Ron Howard has been tackling genres not especially known for making the easiest box office bank. The very underrated “Rush” arrived last year, and in just a few months he’ll reteam with Chris Hemsworth, travel back in time and get out on open water with “In The Heart Of Sea.” Can the duo make it work this time? Well, a new trailer is here, and you’re going to need a bigger boat.
Co-starring Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw and Benjamin Walker, the movie tells the true story that inspired Herman Melville‘s masterpiece “Moby Dick.” And while Hemsworth isn’t playing Queequeq (we’d pay to see that), he does play a hearty sailor who leads everyone else in battling the giant whale who looks like it could flip the entire ship just by flicking tail (in case you’re wondering, Whishaw plays the writer). So, battling Loki, saving the internet next month in “Blackhat,” and taking on whales the size of buildings….is there anything Hemsworth can’t do?
