Trailer & Poster For Ron Howard’s ‘In The Heart Of The Sea’ – Starring Chris Hemsworth, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw…
From Warner Bros. Pictures comes this first trailer and poster for Ron Howard’s ‘In the Heart of the Sea,’ which opens on March 13th, 2015. Based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling novel about the dramatic true journey of the whaling ship Essex, ‘In the Heart of the Sea’ stars Chris Hemsworth as the vessel’s veteran first mate Owen Chase; Benjamin Walker as its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard; Cillian Murphy as second mate Matthew Joy; and Ben Whishaw as novelist Herman Melville, whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light. The film also stars Tom Holland as young seaman Tom Nickerson, and Brendan Gleeson as the same man, 30 years later. Spanish actor Jordi Mollà is the captain of another ship, the Archimedes, who tries to warn the Essex of what may lie ahead.
A captivating mythological adventure steeped in the wondrous world of Irish folklore, ‘Song of the Sea’ speaks powerfully of a long lost respect for the balance of nature based on the loss of old traditions in modern society. A follow up to director Tomm Moore’s Academy-Award nominated ‘The Secret of Kells,’ ‘Song of the Sea’ is a gorgeous spellbinding experience that captures fantasy in its purest form. The film tells the story of Ben and his little sister Saoirse – the last Sea-child – who embark on a fantastic journey across a fading world of ancient legend and magic in an attempt to return to their home by the sea. ‘Song of the Sea’ takes inspiration from the mythological Selkies of Irish folklore, who live as seals in the sea but become humans on land. ‘Song of the Sea’ is playing at the London Film Festival on October 18th and 19th. Look out for the film in cinemas later this year.
Given a similar emphasis on Irish themes and folklore, do you consider ‘Song of the Sea’ to be a continuation of your first film, ‘The Secret of Kells’?
Tomm Moore: ‘Song of the Sea’ grew from ideas I had during the making of Kells and was developed with many of the same artistic team members, so it is in many ways a spiritual follow up rather than a real sequel or anything like that. It’s got a similar feeling in that the art style is again very handmade looking, 2D animation and the music is also again by Bruno Coulais and Kila. Also the story is based around Irish folklore and legends, but this time I wanted to focus on a younger audience, and tried to make a more personal film based on my memories of being a child in Ireland in the 1980s.
I really worked hard this time to make a film that would appeal to as broad an audience as possible. I’m pretty sure that adults and teenagers will enjoy the visuals and the music and story, but I wanted make a film like ‘The Jungle Book’ or ‘My Neighbor Totoro’ that younger audiences could enjoy and then come back to again and again as they grew up.
