Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
Everest is set for release on September 18th, with a cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, John Hawkes, Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, Clive Standen, Michael Kelly and Sam Worthington.

The brand new trailer for Everest brings its ensemble cast to dizzying new heights filed with some high-altitude terror, proving that the climb down the mountain is much tougher than reaching the summit.
Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) leads the expedition as climber Rob Hall whose day on the world’s highest peak goes from bad to worse. While climbing at the heights similar to the cruising altitude of a 747 airplane, disaster strikes a team of climbers as they attempt to make their way down the peak amid a deadly blizzard.
Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, Keria Knightley, John Hawkes, Sam Worthington, Robin Wright, Emily Watson, and Elizabeth Debicki appear in Icelandic director Baltasar Kormakur’s mountain-drama which is scheduled to make its debut at the Venice Film Festival next month.

With little less than a week to go until Venice Film Festival gets underway – during which time Baltasar Kormákur’s Oscar-tipped drama will premiere – Paramount has unveiled the motherload of info dumps for the director’s upcoming thriller, Everest. Comprised of four all-new clips and an array of chilling screenshots, this is our best look at the film to date, and it only reaffirms its status as one of our most-anticipated features of the awards season.
Ramping up the tension as Jake Gyllenhaal et al. set out for the world’s highest peak, the new sizzle reels effectively cast our leading characters astray, after the pair of expeditions are thrust into turmoil when a ferocious storm comes bearing down off the face of the titular mount. Situated at a bone-chilling 8,848 meters above sea level, Everest‘s budding explorers are an awful long way from home, and »

The Venice Film Festival gets underway this week and kicking things off is the starry survival tale "Everest."

The terrible, true story of what was, at the time, the deadliest summit attempt on Mount Everest is now being told in the new film, "Everest," which features an all-star cast and breathtaking special effects.
In the clip below, premiering today exclusively on Moviefone, climber Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal) finally reaches the top of the titular mountain, and the achievement literally takes his breath away.
But while the scene in question is lighthearted -- the pair joke about who among their group has fallen behind, and who will make it to the summit first -- the circumstances that await them are anything but. As chronicled in Jon Krakauer's famous book, "Into Thin Air" (Krakauer was part of Hall's group, »

Everest is just about to hit (September 18th), and while the man vs. nature genre isn’t for everyone, there are some movies worth seeing just for the effort involved, and anything shot, at least partially, on location in Nepal is on that list. Add an incredible cast, and even if the true story about an attempt to reach the summit of Everest gone wrong doesn’t instantly appeal to you, this still has to be one on your radar.
In order to make sure that you’re not misled by the days of CGI and fantastic sets, the film has released some very cool images that, if nothing else, clue you in to the fact that this perhaps wasn’t just a walk in the park for most of the actors.
Take a look below, and lose yourself in the frosty goodness.

Standing tall at an eye-watering 8,848 metres above sea level, few environments on planet Earth are as hostile to the average human as that found on Everest. With temperatures fluctuating between -20ºC and -35ºC at the summit, it’s little wonder why the famed mount attracts only the bravest of the brave. In 1996, though, an expedition went awry when two groups of explorers were caught in the throes of a relentless blizzard, and it proved to be one of the worst disasters in the mountain’s long and storied history.
Almost a decade on, that event has inspired the release of Baltasar Kormákur’s title drama, charting the real-life events of the doomed mountaineering exercise. Lifting inspiration from Jon Krakauer’s acclaimed book Into Thin Air along with a variety of interviews and records from the ’96 disaster, Kormákur’s Everest is gunning for a frighteningly realistic portrayal of the climb, »

Beasts have always provided fantastic source material for horror filmmakers across the ages, whether from the mythical world or the natural. To celebrate the release of Into the Grizzly Maze last week we take a look back at some the biggest, baddest beasts on film…
Into the Grizzly Maze (2015)
Starring James Marsden, Thomas Jane and Billy Bob Thornton, Into the Grizzly Maze tells the story of a sheriff (Jane), thrown into turmoil when a massive rogue grizzly wreaks havoc in a local Alaskan community. Enlisting the help of his estranged brother (Marsden) he enters the labyrinthine Grizzly Maze to track down his missing wife, before the bear does. As the body count mounts, things are only further complicated when an infamous bear hunter (Thornton) enters the fray, determined to take down the bear he’s been waiting for his whole life…

"Now that he's achieved his goal and climbed his way to the summit, what does he do with his power?," asks "House of Cards" showrunner and creator Beau Willimon about his diabolical character of Frank Underwood. In our recent webchat (watch below), he discusses the character (played by Kevin Spacey) and his rise to be the American president: "The pressures of the presidency weigh heavily on his shoulders and on Claire's (Robin Wright) shoulders. What affect would it have on their marriage, which is the central story of 'House of Cards'?" -Break- Related: Watch our 'House of Cards' webchats with Michael Kelly and Rachel Brosnahan The third season of the Netflix political drama has 11 nominations at next month's Emmy Awards.

As “House of Cards” composer Jeff Beal, tells us during our recent webcam chat (watch below), he is inspired to create by the cast of this Netflix drama series led by a two-time Oscar winner and current Emmy contender: "For me, there’s a few actors who have always been on my bucket list, and Kevin Spacey was one of those names. And so the idea that I’m scoring a Kevin Spacey performance, and not just a movie, but now 36 hours of that, that’s a real dream come true, to have that kind of person you’re in support of in this musical score.” -Break- Spacey stars as conniving Us President Frank Underwood, who climbs the political ladder with the help of his equally duplicitous wife Claire (Robin Wright). “I like to write chronologically,” explains the composer, “so the first scene I ever scored was the opening of the pilot, »

Sean Penn and Gary Oldman are long-established in the movie firmament, but they were once young guys who fired on all cylinders in edgier fare. An opportunity to remind viewers of this has presented itself with the release of State Of Grace on Blu-ray. A well-made crime thriller set in Hell’s Kitchen, it caught a few actors on their way up the ladder, from Ed Harris to John Turturro.
Penn plays Terry Noonan, who returns to the New York neighbourhood he grew up in looking for employment. This means rekindling his relationship with the Flannerys, an Irish family with whom he was intimately involved. Best »

Unlike the other three drama acting categories, all the actresses nominated in 2014 for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series were eligible again this year. But four of them didn't make the cut anyway, including the winner. Julianna Margulies won here last year for "The Good Wife," and she was left off along with Lizzy Caplan ("Masters of Sex"), Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey") and Kerry Washington ("Scandal"). Only Claire Danes ("Homeland") and Robin Wright ("House of Cards") return, though Elisabeth Moss ("Mad Men") is also back after sitting last year out. Will one of those three win? If so, they'll have to beat out an epic trio of new competitors. There's Viola Davis, who many thought was a lock to win at the Golden Globes and remains a hot contender for freshman sensation "How to Get Away With Murder." Taraji P. Henson is also high on a lot of lists thanks to her show-stopping role in. »

From Emma Thompson to Amy Schumer to Taraji P. Henson, this year’s list of Emmy nominees reads like a who’s who of Hollywood. With marquee names adding panache to the primetime awards, can we assume that this year’s red carpet will pack an appropriately powerful punch?
“Absolutely,” says stylist Karla Welch, who’s dressing nominees Amy Poehler, Elisabeth Moss, Sarah Paulson and Lisa Kudrow in addition to Carrie Brownstein, whose IFC sketch series “Portlandia” received a nom. “There’s definitely much more excitement these days regarding the Emmy red carpet. I’m finding we’re getting way more opportunity to create custom gowns, so that really says something,” says Welch, who finds that the big labels are more enthusiastic than ever before. “Designers are right on you the second the nominations come out.”

Now that we know the complete list of Emmy episodes submitted by all of the "House of Cards" nominees, it's time to grab some popcorn and watch them all on Netflix. Below, see which episodes were entered for Emmy consideration by leads Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright, supporting player Michael Kelly, guest actress Rachel Brosnahan as well as the six episodes in contention for Best Drama Series. -Break- Click here to see updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions This year, Emmy voting for all program categories is opened up to the entire 18,300 members of the TV academy. That marks a change from the past when members had to opt in to voting and decide on just two program categories in which to cast their ballots. And in another big change, voters will be able to watch online all six episodes submitted by producers rather than getting a pair of them on DVD. »

So many factors go into Emmy voting, nostalgia could easily be considered one of them. How great was it to see Claire Danes step into the leading role on “Homeland” after adoring her as a teen on “My So-Called Life?” When voters cast their ballots for Julia Louis-Dreyfus in “Veep,” they likely have fond memories of her time as Elaine Benes on “Seinfeld” — or maybe they appreciated her recent appearance as herself on “Inside Amy Schumer.” The same could be said of “Nurse Jackie” star Edie Falco, who won three Emmys for playing Carmela Soprano, or “The Comeback” queen Lisa Kudrow, who won in 1998 for “Friends.” Once you’re in the winner’s circle, you stand a better chance of being invited back.
And the smallscreen has long been a great place for actors, particularly women. If “new golden era” is becoming a tired phrase to describe the current TV landscape, »

At least this wouldn’t be the year of #EmmysSoWhite. (Memo to Oscars: The pressure is on.)
This year’s slate of Emmy nominees offered up diversity across the acting categories. But that’s not to say TV has achieved anything close to parity. Far from it.
Witness the lead actress in a comedy race, which is shockingly pale. Whither Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”), and Constance Wu (“Fresh Off the Boat”)? At least in the supporting race, Niecy Nash (“Getting On”) made the cut in a lineup that stretched to eight nominees.
Only one black actress has ever won for comedy: Isabel Sanford took home the trophy in 1981 for “The Jeffersons.” There’s been a shutout for actresses of color in that race since Phylicia Rashad in 1986 for “The Cosby Show.” That’s 29 looooong years. There’s nothing funny about that.
