About a year ago we reported on Ryan Reynold’s involvement in a new documentary in the works called ‘The Whale.’ The trailer and poster for the film have just been released.

Set near Reynold’s hometown off the western coast of Vancouver Island, ‘The Whale’ follows the story of Luna, an orca who was separated from his family when he was young. He ended up in a narrow length of the sea called Nootka Sound. Being a social creature as orcas are, Luna still searched for companionship. He didn’t find it with his own species, so he became friends with the local human species.

The film explores the tension between those who know and love Luna as a friend and those who worry that this much interaction with humans and none with his own species will hurt the young whale.

‘The Cove’ director Ric O’Barry gives his thumbs up to the film, so you know it’s going to be good. In addition to narrating the film, Reynolds also served as executive producer alongside Scarlett Johansson.

See the trailer below.

    FFS … the first comment is from a whacko Christian spammer who believes Scarlett Johansson is a clone and has been working the internet with it, the second is spam for another movie … you guys need to pay more attention to your moderating!

    And no need to publish this one …
