Based on an inspiring true story, a small-town news reporter (Krasinski) and a Greenpeace volunteer (Barrymore) enlist the help of rival superpowers to save three majestic gray whales trapped under the ice of the Arctic Circle. ‘Big Miracle’ is adapted from the nonfiction book ‘Freeing the Whales: How the Media Created the World’s Greatest Non-Event’ by Tom Rose.

I'm looking forward to this movie. I just finished reading the newest edition of the book by Tom Rose, and I compared the real people's names that were involved with the rescue to the character names from Universal.
Universal created new names for all the top people involved in the rescue. They even invented a new name for the Governor of Alaska in 1988. For example, the Greenpeace woman's name is really Cindy Lowery, not Racheal Kramer played by Drew Barrymore. The real governor's name was STEVE COWPER, not Governor Haskell. The real guy who shot the video in Barrow, played by John Krasinski as Adam Carlson, was actually the government TV Studio Manager of the North Slope Borough, Oran Caudle. The big oil executive's name was Bill Allen of VECO, not Liam Peterson played by Ted Danson. And so on and so on...
It would have been better if Universal had used the real names. I guess that is why they advertise "Inspired by" instead of "based on" the book by Tom Rose.
I'm still going to go see it. But shame on you Universal.
