Essex on the silver screen

The trailer for Ron Howard’s film In the Heart of the Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s bestseller of the same name, is finally out.  It’s about time somebody put the tragedy of the Essex on the big screen; it’s one of the most harrowing and incredible episodes in human history.

  1. Thanks for this — I wasn’t even aware this was in production.

    It’s also about time Philbrick got some love from Hollywood. His books are great.

      I really enjoyed his Essex book. I’m kind of a wannabe whaling history nerd anyway, though; I’m dying to visit the museum at New Bedford.
