Adventure fans get ready because this adventure is unlike any other, and it’s based on a true story. Disaster films have been a fan favorite for years, even if they may never actually happen in real life, but that is not the case with Universals next film EVEREST. With an all-star cast of Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal this epic adventure takes you to the worlds highest mountain and follows two different expeditions both attempting to reach the summit. As if making it to the top isn’t a journey of itself they are challenged with facing the one of the fiercest snow storm ever met.
THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW goes down as one of my favorite disaster films to this day and I am excited to see Gyllenhall back in this genre for sure. The talent in this film is stacked and it will be more than interesting to see Emily Watson, Robin Wright and Keira Knightley facing the elements of a film like this.
EVEREST is directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 GUNS, CONTRANBAND) and produced by Working Title Films’ Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Cross Creek Pictures’ Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson, as well as Nicky Kentish Barnes and Kormákur.
EVEREST is set to hit theatres on September 18, 2015. Check out the trailer below and let us know if you are excited for this epic adventure.
