Lanzarote is featured in the trailer for the movie “In The Heart of the Sea" directed by Ron Howard, which is due to open in cinemas from the 13th March 2015.
This trailer released on the 16th of October, has an aerial shot of Alegranza, one of the islands off the north coast of Lanzarote, part of the Chinijo Archipelago and marine reserve of La Graciosa. The beach featured in the 3 minute clip is that of the Charco de los Clicos, the green lagoon and black beach by El Golfo in the south of the island.
The Warner Bros. Pictures presentation is an action adventure based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book of the Essex. Both the Canary Islands of Lanzarote and La Gomera were picked as filming locations, which took place late last year, to portray the classic true story of the whaling ship that inspired the tale of Moby-Dick.
The cast includes Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Tom Holland, Brendan Gleeson and Jordi Mollà.
