Directed by none other than Ron Howard, In The Heart Of The Sea follows author Herman Melville (Whishaw), as he visits the last surviving crew member of whaling ship The Essex, an innkeeper by the name of Thomas Nickerson (Gleeson).

Daniel Craig, Christoph Waltz, and more of the SPECTRE cast chat about the movie’s artful cinematography and seat-shaking audio.
Well what can we say about The Lobster. What can we not say? A film like nothing you have never seen before, while the film’s resemblance to the director’s earlier 2009 film Dogtooth may be startling, The Lobster represents another genre entirely in today’s current film market.
With a brilliantly crafted script by the ubiquitous Abi Morgan and very well directed by Gavron, this is an absorbing and moving dramatisation of an important part of feminist history.
