Warner Bros. Film Studio has postponed the premiere of In the Heart of the Sea, directed by Ron Howard. Instead of March 13, the picture will be presented to viewers on December 11, 2015. The reason for the change in the rental schedule was not specified, but, most likely, the studio rates the project as one of the main contenders for professional awards in the upcoming award season.
Recall that in the center of the plot of the picture is a real case with the whaling ship "Essex", which occurred in 1820. The schooner was attacked and sunk by a giant sperm whale, and the surviving crew members had to spend more than three months in the open ocean. This story formed the basis of the famous work by Herman Melville "Moby Dick".
The movie stars Chris Hemsworth, Michelle Fairley, Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson, Ben Whishaw, Charlotte Riley, Benjamin Walker, Tom Holland, Jordi Molla, Joseph Mole and other actors.
Note that a week before the release of "In the Heart of the Sea", the fantastic movie "The Martian" starts at the box office, and a week later - the most anticipated movie of 2015 "Star Wars: Episode 7 - The Force Awakens". Most likely, these particular movie projects will become the main competitors of the new movie by Ron Howard in the battle for the audience's wallets.
