Russell Crowe on the high seas - Trailer Feature

HMS Surprise
28 guns
197 souls
Coast of Brazil
April 1805

“… Intercept French Privateer, Acheron … you will sink, burn or take her a prize”

Three-time Academy Award directing nominee Peter Weir and Oscar winner Russell Crowe join forces to create an epic, emotional adventure: MASTER AND COMMANDER: The Far Side of the World.

Set during the Napoleonic Wars, Crowe is Patrick O’Brian’s Captain “Lucky” Jack Aubrey, renowned as a fighting captain in the British Navy, and Paul Bettany is ship’s doctor Stephen Maturin. Their ship, the Surprise, is suddenly attacked by a superior enemy. With the HMS Surprise badly damaged and much of his crew injured, Aubrey is torn between duty and friendship as he pursues a high-stakes chase across two oceans, to intercept and capture his foe.

It’s a mission that can make his reputation – or destroy Lucky Jack and his crew. In the course of the characters’ epic journey, the movie travels the world – from the coast of Brazil to the storm-tossed waters of Cape Horn, south through ice and snow, to the far side of the world, to the remote shores of The Galapagos Islands (becoming the first feature film ever to film there).

MASTER AND COMMANDER is directed by Peter Weir from a screenplay by Weir & John Collee, based upon the novels by Patrick O’Brian. O’Brian’s “Aubrey/Maturin” novels, so named after the lead characters, were declared by Richard Snow, in The New York Times to be “the best historical novels ever written.” David Mamet, also writing in the Times, called O’Brian one of the greatest novelists writing in the English language over the past 30 years.

As to O’Brian’s creation, Captain Jack Aubrey, the Times later noted that Russell Crowe “seems born to play him.”

The film uses every state-of-the-art motion picture technique and an obsessive attention to accuracy and detail to put the audience back in time – not, as so common now, forward to some science fiction world – and lets us experience an adventure aboard a ship in Nelson’s Navy 200 years ago.

From the splinter of wood in an attack to the heat of the doldrums, to rounding Cape Horn in a violent storm, MASTER AND COMMANDER puts the audience at sea as never before in film.
