There’s a gigantic sea monster! There’s Chris Hemsworth’s muscular and skeletal frame! There’s harpoons and storms and dolphins and waves and adventure! There’s even a British man (played by Ben Whishaw) narrating the story as told by another very talented actor (Brendan Gleeson).

It was fairly inevitable that director Ron Howard and Tom Hanks would team up for another sequel to The Da Vinci Code, despite the largely underwhelming Angels and Demons. As Inferno finally gears up for production, the new project is certainly making a case for our interest, adding a trio of international stars to the cast, including actors from X-Men and Jurassic World.

If you were itching to see Thor take on a massive, deadly whale in Ron Howard's sure-to-be-harrowing epic 'In the Heart of the Sea,' you'll just have to wait a little longer.
