New Trailer for Universal Pictures’ Everest Released

16 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.

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 face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

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.

Buzz pic, set to bow out of competition on the Lido September 2, recaps the 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that left eight climbers dead. Gyllenhaal plays Scott Fischer, with Jason Clarke as Rob Hall, Josh Brolin as Beck Weathers, and John Hawkes as Doug Hansen.

It marks a nice coup for Venice artistic director topper Alberto Barbera, following “Birdman” as opener last year, and sci-fi thriller “Gravity” in 2013.

Euro exhibitors who got a closed-door screening of “Everest” at the CineEurope meet in Barcelona last week were impressed.

Producers are Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Baltasar Kormakur, Nicky Kentish Barnes, and Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson.

According to The Daily Mail, Working Title Films is hoping to shoot the third movie in the Bridget Jones series this year, with Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth said to be in talks to reprise their roles from the first two movies.

“We are keen to try to make it later this year, but there’s still nothing definite yet,” states Eric Fellner of Working Title. “If the script and all our deals with the actors fall into place, then this one will be up and running.”

The third movie, entitled Bridget Jones’s Baby, has been written by author Helen Fielding, and Sharon Maguire – who helmed the 2001 original – is said to be back in the director’s chair. However, Hugh Grant has already opted against a return as Daniel Cleaver, with his character said to be absent from the script.
