Chris Hemsworth is about to get slammed – by a giant CGI whale.

Warner Bros. released a new trailer for the Ron Howard-directed action thriller, In the Heart of the Sea, which is based on the 2000 biographical book of the same name by Nathaniel Philbrick, and follows the real-life sinking of the whaleship Essex, in the Pacific Ocean in 1820.

Hemsworth plays first mate Owen Chase alongside Benjamin Walker, who plays Captain George Pollard Jr. Cillian Murphy also joins in on the whale mayhem as second mate Matthew Joy, while Tom Holland plays cabin boy Thomas Nickerson.

In the Heart of the Sea is slated for release on March 13, 2015.
