In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

Film adaptation

The story was adapted into a feature film by director Ron Howard, starring Chris Hemsworth, Ben Whishaw, and Cillian Murphy.[3] Advertising for the film points out that the historical story inspired the Moby Dick mythology.[4]

The film was scheduled for release in the US on December 11, 2015, but was released in major markets like Brazil, Russia, India and 37 other countries, as well as parts of the US, on December 3, 2015 to avoid competition from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
