Wow. The trailer for Ron Howard’s In the Heart of the Sea surfaced (HA!) today and it’s spectacular. Just to recap: this is a movie based on a National Book Award-winning history (Nathaniel Philbrick’s In the Heart of the Sea); based on gripping first accounts, one of which was only discovered in the 1980s (Chase and Nickerson’s The Loss of the Whaleship Essex, Sunk by a Whale); that inspired one of the greatest novels ever written (Moby-Dick). If that’s not good pedigree, what is?
