John Krasinksi plays Alaskan small town reporter Adam Carlson who report on three California gray whales that are trapped in the ice in the upcoming film Big Miracle. His ex-girlfriend is a eco-activist played by Drew Barrymore. Between the two of them they briefly unite Cold War-era USSR and the US to help save the whales. It seems to be going for the heart-warming vibe.
Big Miracle will be in theaters on February 3rd, 2012.
