You may watch below the first official trailer of The Mercy, the upcoming drama biography movie directed by James Marsh and starring Colin Firth, Rachel Weisz, David Thewlis, Jonathan Bailey, Adrian Schiller, and Eleanor Stagg:
Based on the true story.
From the Director “The Theory of Everything”.
Discover the unsolved mystery that shocked the world.
“Based on the incredible true story of amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst (Colin Firth), and his attempt to win the first single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968.
Crowhurst entered the Sunday Times Golden Globe race, partly as an opportunity to publicise a new navigation device he had been working on. He fitted another of his inventions, a stability system, to his untested trimaran and set off to on his solo mission to circumnavigate the globe.
Leaving his family behind, his inexperience and loneliness found him confronted with dramatic struggles and acute isolation alone on the high seas.
A haunting tale of a man going to sea and the family he leaves behind.”
The sea shows no mercy, especially to frauds…
The film will be released on February 9, 2018 in the UK, but it has yet to get an official US release date.
Stay tuned for updates.
