Ron Howard‘s new movie In the Heart of the Sea takes its major inspiration from the story of the whaling ship Essex, which ran afoul of a sperm whale in 1820, much to the dismay of its crew. The story was among the inspirations that led Herman Melville‘s creation of Moby Dick, and now Chris Hemsworth and Tom Holland lead the cast portraying the embattled seamen. A new In the Heart of the Sea trailer helps to show that this story is more than just a tale of a single encounter at sea; check it out below. Read More »

Ron Howard just felt a Force push. Howard is prepping Inferno for an April 2015 shoot; it will be his third film based on a Dan Brown novel. Tom Hanks will once again star as Professor Robert Langdon in the adaptation of Brown’s 2013 novel. But the film was scheduled to be released in December 2015.
And while there is no doubt that an audience made up of all your parents and extended family will show up for Inferno, Sony doesn’t want to compete with Star Wars Episode VII, which is scheduled to be released on the same day Inferno was planning to hit theaters. And so Sony has wisely decided to push the film into 2016. Read More »
With Ron Howard‘s ever-busy schedule, many fans surely wondered when he was going to shoot Inferno. Based on the best-seller by Dan Brown, the film will mark the third time he and Oscar-winner Tom Hanks bring Brown’s work to life. Last summer Sony set a December 18, 2015 release date for the film and have since kept that plan firm. Howard has been attached to at least three or four projects since, however, and with no movement on Inferno, plus another major film opening that day, precisely when Inferno would happen was the subject of questions.
Well, it’s happening in the Spring. A new report states Howard and Hanks have closed their deals and finally scheduled April as the start of production on the film, which once again follows symbologist Robert Langdon (Hanks) as he travels the globe using his ancient knowledge to save the world from a psychotic maniac. The question becomes: can Howard finish the Inferno movie in eight months? Read More »
