IN SHORT: nnn. [Rated PG-13 by the MPAA for intense sequences of action and peril, brief startling violence, and thematic material.. minutes]

about the dramatic true journey of the whaling ship Essex.

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. "In the 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.

[ New England whaling ship Essex ] the vessel's veteran first mate Owen Chase (Chris Hemsworth); its inexperienced Captain, George Pollard (Benjamin Walker); as second mate Matthew Joy (Cillian Murphy); and as novelist Herman Melville (Ben Whishaw), whose inquiries into the event 30 years later helped bring the story to light.

also stars as young seaman Tom Nickerson (Tom Holland), and as the same man, 30 years later (Brendan Gleeson). is the captain of another ship, the Archimedes (Jordi Mollà), who tries to warn the Essex of what may lie ahead.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-winning director of photography Anthony Dod Mantle ("Slumdog Millionaire," "Rush"); production designer Mark Tildesley ("The Fifth Estate"); Oscar-winning editors Mike Hill ("Apollo 13," "Rush") and Dan Hanley ("Apollo 13"); costume designer Julian Day ("Rush") and composer Roque Baños

On average, a first run movie ticket will run you Ten Bucks. Were Cranky able to set his own price to In The Heart Of The Sea, he would have paid . . .
