Ron Howard's take on the origins of Moby Dick gets itself a stunning new trailer.

In The Heart Of The Sea follows the fate of the Essex, a whaling ship that was attacked by a giant sperm whale and shipwrecked the crew.

The true story was used as a basis for Moby Dick, one of the greatest novels ever written.

Hemsworth plays Owen Chase, the Essex's first mate while our own Cillian Murphy plays Matthew Joy, the second mate. Brendan Gleeson also stars as an older version of one of the crew's survivors while Ben Whishaw plays Herman Melville, the author of Moby Dick.

Although the trailer is a little heavy on the CGI, Howard's never had an issue with harnessing raw emotion from his films. There's a solid cast at work and the story itself looks very interesting.

We're excited about this one. Here's the trailer.
