For his next Throwback Thursday, Ron Howard looks to Nathaniel Philbrick‘s book, In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex – the IRL events of which would inspire Herman Melville’s classic novel – and a litany of sepia-toned filters to bring out the best in Chris Hemsworth’s Moby Dick.

In The Heart of The Sea opens March 13th, 2015.
