Everest Releases New Images That Highlight Unfriendly Terrain

27 August 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

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.

Baltasar Kormakur’s ‘Everest’ to Open Venice Film Festival

8 July 2015 4:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Baltasar Kormakur’s mountain climbing thriller “Everest,” which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, will open the 72nd Venice Film Festival.
