Roofing & Salvage Depot were very pleased to supply some original architectural antiques which featured in Hollywood Blockbuster "In The Heart Of The Sea"
The film, which stars Chris Hemsworth and Cillian Murphy follows a New England whaling ship, which was sunk by a whale in 1820.
Also starring Brendan Gleeson, Michelle Fairley and Tom Holland, the story follows whaling ship Essex as it was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.
The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville's Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. "In the Heart of the Sea" reveals the encounter's harrowing aftermath, as the ship's surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, as their captain searches for direction on the open sea and his first mate still seeks to bring the great whale down.
It was exciting to see some of our products on the big screen, and we look forward to the next opportunity to work with a Hollywood film studio.
