Have you heard about the new Universal Pictures’ movie called Big Miracle, starring Drew Barrymore & John Krasinski? My friend Caryn saw it and said it was “phenomenal”. I’ve also started seeing commercials for it and am intrigued. Here’s a bit more about the movie.
- Rating: PG
- Cast: Drew Barrymore, John Krasinski, Kristen Bell, Dermot Mulroney, Tim Blake Nelson, Ted Danson
- Directed by: Ken Kwapis
- Screenplay by: Jack Amiel & Michael Begler
- Produced by: Steve Golin, Michael Sugar, Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner
Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.
Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.
With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe, saving these endangered animals becomes a shared cause for nations entrenched against one another and leads to a momentary thaw in the Cold War.
Here’s the trailer.
