In The Heart of the Sea

In The Heart of the Sea is one of the films that I have been looking forward to all year as it not only marks the return of the fantastic Ron Howard to the director's chair, but it is set to be the most challenging acting role of Chris Hemsworth's career to date.

The movie follows the incredible true story of the Essex, a whaling ship that became the hunted rather than the hunter - this is the tale that inspired author Herman Melville to write the novel Moby Dick.

There's still just over three weeks to go until In the Heart of the Sea finally hits the big screen but we have some terrific new clips for you to take a look at:

We are big fans of Hemsworth here at FemaleFirst and he has enjoyed a very successful 2015 - it looks like it is going to go out with a bang as another great performance is on this cards with this latest film.

Hemsworth has already posted images of the amount of weight that he lost for this role - losing a staggering 33lbs - and I really cannot wait to see him in action in the central role.

A terrific cast has been assembled for the movie as Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Benjamin Walker, Paul Anderson, Charlotte Riley, and Michelle Fairley will all-star alongside Hemsworth.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story.

In the Heart of the Sea reveals the encounter's harrowing aftermath, as the ship's surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.

Howard is famed for delivering exciting but character driven movies - Apollo 13 and Rush being two fine examples of that - and I cannot wait to see what he delivers with In The Heart of the Sea.

In The Heart of the Sea is released 26th December.
