More: An Emotional Brendan Fraser Receives Minutes-Long Standing Ovation for Performance in The Whale at London Film Festival



“The Whale” starring Brendan Fraser received another enthusiastic standing ovation, this time at the London Film Festival on Tuesday.

In a video shared by Jack Aling for Escape Film Club, the 53-year-old actor stands on stage during the minutes-long standing ovation, and takes a deep bow. Director Darren Aronofsky and screenwriter Samuel D. Hunter joined him.

“I have never seen a standing ovation at London Film Festival but Brendan Fraser just blew the roof off,” Aling tweeted alongside the video.

“The Whale,” which follows a severely obese English teacher (Fraser) who is trying to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Sadie Sink), will arrive in theaters Dec. 9.
