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.

First Trailer For Everest

4 June 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A disaster movie played out at 35,000 feet, Everest is essentially a true-life Cliffhanger, less the criminal schemes and Craig Fairbrass shouting about soccer. The film’s first trailer lends a sense of nature’s awe to the derring-do of a small band trying to scale the Earth’s highest point. Then things go wrong. Very, very wrong...Far from keeping its powder dry, Universal’s first trailer plunges us straight into to the freezing chaos of a fateful summit climb. The story is loosely inspired by real events (the 1996 disaster recounted in Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air) and sees Jason Clarke leading a party of climbers up the Nepalese monolith as Kiwi mountaineer Rob Hall. Alongside him on the slopes are Josh Brolin as Doctor Beck Weathers, John Hawkes as Doug Hansen and Jake Gyllenhaal as Scott Fischer, the leader of a separate expedition. Things are progressing nicely, with »

The Everest Trailer Is Haunting And Intense

4 June 2015 8:21 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

The Everest trailer is "another beast all together." Cut together with that haunting, high-pitched piano pluck and foreboding words, the footage features a cast that includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and Jason Clarke as they make their way up to the tippy top of the world's most famous mountain, only to get knocked back down in a horrific storm.

Everest: Jake Gyllenhaal Has a Snowbeard in New Images

3 June 2015 2:43 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ahead of tomorrow’s trailer debut, Universal Pictures has released a couple of new images from director Baltasar Kormakur’s (2 Guns) upcoming survival drama Everest. Based on true events that occurred in 1996, the film follows a cluster of summiters who got waylaid at the top of Mount Everest to disastrous results: eight climbers lost their lives. If the story sounds familiar, it’s also the basis for author Jon Krakauer’s best-seller Into Thin Air. Kormakur shot the pic in Nepal and the Italian Alps, and as you can see in these new images, the actors didn’t have to work hard to fake the chilly conditions. Jason Clarke stars as climbing guide Rob Hall, while Josh Brolin plays his client. The impressive ensemble also includes Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Sam Worthington, Emily Watson, and Keira Knightley. Check out the new images below, via People, and check back »

Exclusive: Thomas Dekker Talks Stepping into the Claustrophobic Chamber for Fear Clinic

20 February 2015 8:59 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

From the Laid to Rest films to Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Thomas Dekker has played a plethora of memorable roles in the horror and sci-fi genres. His performance in Robert Hall’s Fear Clinic is no exception—in his third collaboration with director Hall, Dekker turns in a fascinating performance as Blake, a young man suffering from brain damage and Ptsd after surviving a madman’s public shooting spree.

With Fear Clinic now available on Blu-ray and DVD from Anchor Bay, we caught up with the Dekker to discuss bringing Blake to life in non-vocal ways, his character’s chilling backstory, working with the legendary Robert Englund, facing his own fear during filming, and much more.

What were the challenges of realistically portraying a character with brain damage and Ptsd? Did digging into that role require any in-depth research?

Thomas Dekker: I have to give a lot of credit to Rob Hall. »

Icons of Fright Interview With Fear Clinic’s Thomas Dekker!

16 February 2015 6:29 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Beginning his acting career very young, Fear Clinic‘s Thomas Dekker has worked with everyone from John Carpenter to Jerry Seinfeld and most people in between. Always jumping into each role and doing a hell of a job with them, Dekker’s always good, even if certain films might not have been (I’m not the biggest fan of the A Nightmare On Elm Street remake, but still liked what Dekker brought to the table). When Dekker was cast as a young John Connor in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, he met and began a creatively rich working relationship with FX maestro Rob Hall, who went on to cast Dekker in both Laid To Rest films, as well as Fear Clinic. Playing Blake, a mysterious (and somewhat catatonic) survivor of a shooting which comes to the film’s Fear Clinic to be cured of his fears, Dekker does an excellent »

Exclusive: Robert Englund Talks Returning as Dr. Andover in the Fear Clinic Film, Freddy Krueger vs. the Fear Chamber & More

16 February 2015 4:17 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

As dream stalker Freddy Krueger in eight A Nightmare on Elm Street feature films and two seasons of Freddy’s Nightmares, Robert Englund expertly exploited people’s fears before adding yet another Elm Street notch to his kill list. But as Dr. Andover in Robert Hall’s 2009 Fear Clinic web series, Englund played a character with benevolent traits opposite of Krueger’s malevolent methods. Dr. Andover helped patients conquer their fears by having them face their personalized horrors in hallucinatory, dream-like states induced by his innovative Fear Chamber.

Englund recently reteamed with co-writer/director Hall to reprise his role as the good doctor in the Fear Clinic feature film, now available on home media from Anchor Bay, and we caught up with the legendary actor to discuss how Dr. Andover has changed since we last saw him in the web series, the David Cronenberg-esque elements of Fear Clinic, what »

Review: Fear Clinic

9 February 2015 1:48 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

When the FEARnet web series, Fear Clinic, appeared a few years back, it was great to see different phobias put under the microscope and dealt with, with the help of Robert Englund’s Dr. Andover character at the helm of his “Fear Chamber”, a device used to force people to face whatever scares them. Each entry was very episodic, and when it had finished, a feature-length version of the film seemed like a surefire thing to do. Thanks to director Rob Hall and co-writer Aaron Drane, fans get just that, with the new Fear Clinic feature, a film that while still feeling close to the original web-series, does an excellent job standing on its own and offering fans a wild ride.

In the time that has passed in between the web-series and the film, Dr. Andover has become somewhat of a medical celebrity, winning awards, gracing the covers of magazines »

Patients don’t see Dr. Andover (Robert Englund) for a typical check-up.

28 January 2015 4:17 PM, PST | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

The Rob Hall/Aaron Drane created Fear Clinic web-series was a big hit with horror fans, when it first aired on the now defunct (and sorely missed) FEARnet back in 2009. Anchored by genre legend (and Freddy himself) Robert Englund, the series dealt with the various phobias people have, with each episode featuring Englund’s Dr. Andover character helping the patient face and defeat their fears.

Featuring Englund’s return as Andover, and starring Curse Of Chucky‘s Fiona Dourif, Angelina Armani, Thomas Dekker, as well as Stone Sour and Slipknot lead vocalist Corey Taylor in his acting debut, the film is a fully »
