A featurette for The Mercy is now online which includes insight from the film’s leads, Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz and director James Marsh. You can check it out above.

Based on a true story, Firth plays Donald Crowhurst, an amateur sailor who built his own boat in order to compete in the 1968 Sunday Times Golden Globe Race, in the hopes of becoming the first person in history to single-handedly circumnavigate the globe without stopping.

The Mercy is in cinemas this Friday. Check out the featurette and clip below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
