Big Miracle Synopsis

Based on the inspiring 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 a Greenpeace 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.

Weekend Box Office: Chronicle Works Its Powers Super Bowl Weekend Weekend Box Office: Chronicle Works Its Powers Super Bowl Weekend
Does the Super Bowl effect ticket sales? You'd better believe it. While Sunday does tend to be the lowest money maker of any three day weekend, Super Bowl Sunday is usually (and predictably) one of the lowest Sundays of the year. After all, how could anything Hollywood cranks out compare to watching commercials featuring dogs barking out themes from Star Wars?

Drew Barrymore And John Krasinski Talk Spreading The Message In Big Miracle Drew Barrymore And John Krasinski Talk Spreading The Message In Big Miracle
There are some strong messages at play in Ken Kwapis’ Big Miracle. The film tells the story of a family of whales that is trapped under a patch of Alaskan ice and is unable to make it out into open water. There are, of course, comments on environmentalism, but also the media, oil drilling, political/military action and the importance of respecting cultural differences.

Big Miracle Trailer: Drew Barrymore Gets On The Ice And Saves Some Whales Big Miracle Trailer: Drew Barrymore Gets On The Ice And Saves Some Whales
The good news is that this looks like the kind of cheesy, delightful inspirational movie that came out in the 80s, and since this one is set in the 80s it gets away with it. The better news is that Drew Barrymore and John Krasinski are adorable in pretty much everything they do, and from just one trailer i know I'll watch the hell out of them crouching on Arctic ice to communicate with the whales
