Watch: Chris Hemsworth Faces Ocean’s ‘Dark Secrets’ in ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ Final Trailer

Chris Hemsworth has likely never faced an adversary like a giant sperm whale.

Warner Bros. released the final trailer for Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea” on Monday, showing a last look at survival drama adaptation.

The movie is based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s 2000 novel “In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of Whaleship Essex,” which follows the true story of the Essex whaleship as it was attacked by a giant sperm whale in 1820. The true story inspired Herman Melville’s (who appears in the movie as Ben Whishaw and can be seen in the trailer) classic novel “Moby Dick.”

In the new trailer, first mate Owen Chase, played by Hemsworth, struggles to keep himself and his crew mates alive in their epic encounter with the massive sea beast.

Hemsworth stars alongside Tom Holland, Benjamin Walker, Brendan Gleeson, Jordi Molla, Cillian Murphy and Whishaw. Joe Roth, Paula Weinstein, Will Ward, Brian Grazer and Howard produced the movie, which was co-produced and co-financed by Village Roadshow.

“In the Heart of the Sea” dives into theaters Dec. 11. It was originally slated to debut in March, but Warner Bros. bumped the movie to December to have it jumping into the thick of awards season.
