Chris Hemsworth stars as veteran first mate Owen Chase in this gripping drama based on the true story that inspired the classic Herman Melville novel "Moby-Dick." In 1820, rookie captain George Pollard (Walker) and the crew of the whaling ship Essex are attacked by a colossal whale that appears to be out for vengeance. When the ship is destroyed, the surviving crew faces storms and starvation on the open sea as they struggle to stay alive, and Chase looks to exact his revenge on the monstrous whale.
