Rush was one of Ron Howard‘s best films in decades, and hopefully this is the beginning of career resurgence when it comes to quality. His next film, In the Heart of the Sea, certainly has the potential with its incredible true story. In 1819, the whaling ship Essex was rammed by an angry sperm whale in the South Pacific. The surviving crew drifted for 90 days in three tiny whaleboats and encountered disease, hunger, and eventually cannibalism. Howard has released a couple set photos of the production working on the last day of their interior tank work.
