The first trailer for the highly anticipated (and heartwarming) film “Big Miracle” (thankfully changed from the previous working title of “Everybody Loves Whales”) has hit – and it looks to be a great retelling of the 1988 dramatic grey whale rescue.

Do you remember 1988? Even though I was 10, I can’t say this one rings a bell – though it was a widely followed story and later largely credited with changing the public’s perception of whales. For those not already familiar, three grey whales were discovered trapped in an ice pack off Point Barrow, Alaska in October ’88. What followed to free the animals was an amazing collaboration between scientists, villagers, and governments – with even the Soviet Union lending a hand.

The event was such a big deal that even President Reagan felt compelled to issues a statement upon hearing that the whales had finally been led to open waters. “The human persistence and determination by so many individuals on behalf of these whales shows mankind’s concern for the environment,” he lauded.

Fast forward to 2011, and we’ve finally got a film based on the rescue mission. John Krasinski (“The Office”), Drew Barrymore (“E.T.”), and Ted Danson (“Damages”, some “CSI” show) star; with the latter amusingly playing a whale-hating oil tycoon.

Check out the trailer below. “Big Miracle” splashes into theaters February 3rd.
