Ron Howard's In the Heart of the Sea delayed until December

HEart of the sea Hemsworth

Looks like Thor won’t be fighting that big ass whale for a while as Warner Bros. has decided to delay IN THE HEART OF THE SEA just two months before its release. The studio is now aiming for an awards-friendly date that will see the Ron Howard-directed drama land in theaters on December 11th. And that's that, folks.

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA stars Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Brendan Gleeson, and Frank Dillane in a film based on the true story of the Essex whaleship that was attacked and sunk by a sperm whale in the southern Pacific Ocean in 1820.

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. “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.
