The 'Charlie's Angels' star plays a Greenpeace volunteer who struggles to raise people's awareness to rescue a family of stranded grey whales in Alaska.

Universal Pictures has premiered the first trailer for Drew Barrymore's "Big Miracle". Coming out via Apple, the video gives a look at the 36-year-old actress struggling to save some stranded whales in Alaska.

At some points, the "Grey Gardens" actress is interacting with the sea mammals, touching and even diving with them. She is also seen promoting a campaign to save the animals, saying, "Sometimes whales are a little vulnerable and need our help."

Inspired by a true story that happened during the Cold War, "Big Miracle" centers on a Greenpeace volunteer and a small town reporter who team up with U.S. and Soviet governments to rescue a family of majestic gray whales which are trapped in rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle.

Barrymore plays the Greenpeace volunteer, while John Krasinski stars as the local newsman. Joining them in the cast ensemble are Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson and Ted Danson. Ken Kwapis tackles the directorial duty, with Jack Amiel and Michael Begler providing the script. The movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters across the U.S. on February 3, 2012.
