Bevy Of Clips And Chilling Screenshots For Everest Showcase An Oscar-Tipped Thriller

31 August 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

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.

Things Go From Bad To Worse In Gripping New Clip And TV Spot For Everest

27 August 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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, »

House of Cards’ Michael Kelly on Why He Chose ‘Chapter 27’ for His Emmy Submission

27 August 2015 8:13 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

As the Emmys approach (September 20), Vulture reached out to some of the nominees to talk about the episodes they submitted for consideration. Today, House of Cards' Michael Kelly walks us through Doug Stamper's season-three transformation, and the day he found out he was nominated for his first Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. The Episode: "Chapter 27" Going into House of Cards' third season, fans were left with a crucial cliff-hanger: Was Doug Stamper alive? We last saw Frank Underwood's chief of staff and go-to henchman lying in the middle of the woods, having been bludgeoned with a rock by his captive, Rachel Posner, and presumably left for dead. The season opener revealed that while Stamper had survived the attack, he'd suffered a severe brain injury that would require months of rehabilitation away from the White House corruption he thrived on. The blow to his »

27 August 2015 2:17 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

At Monday's cocktail reception for Emmy nominees hosted by the Performers Peer Group of the TV academy, we chatted with Best Drama Guest Actress contender Rachel Brosnahan (“House of Cards") on the red carpet about being in an Emmy race for the first time. Watch our fun interview below. -Break- Click here to see the updated list of all 2015 Emmy episode submissions For Brosnahan, the nomination was “very shocking." As she explains, “it was never going to happen, I was not expecting this.” Although she has been busy since her exit from "House of Cards," she readily admits, “to play this beautifully complex woman was a dream come true.” When Gold Derby spoke with her in June she told us that she was as shocked as the audience would be about the death of her character. “I had no idea I was making a grand exit until I turned up for the table reading. »

'House of Cards' creator Beau Willimon on diabolical presidency of Kevin Spacey [Exclusive Emmy interview]

24 August 2015 11:18 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"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.

21 August 2015 2:36 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Michael Kelly took a break from filming Season 4 of “House of Cards” to talk with TheWrap about his Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for the show’s third season. Kelly plays the ultimate righthand man, Doug Stamper, on the Netflix series that follows Southern politician Frank Underwood (fellow nominee Kevin Spacey), who will stop at nothing to rise to power. Kelly could not be more different than the character he plays, however, and laughed while describing his lack of fear regarding his acting career. “I was always so naive to think, ‘Oh, I got my degree. »

13 August 2015 12:11 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As Stefon might say, the 2015 Emmy race for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series has everything: previous winners, first-timers, comebacks from Snubs-ville, even former nominees recognized for new series.

The Changing Landscape of Emmy Supporting Nominees

11 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s nominees in the supporting categories are evidence of a changing television landscape. Writing teams are experimenting as the medium gets bolder, transforming traditional second-banana characters into more fully rounded individuals.

Take Uzo Aduba’s inmate Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on Net-flix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” The thesp credits the writing for giving her a rich foundation to work from. “I think that the easy route would have been to make a stock character,” she says. “If you just looked at her on the surface it would be easy to not fight for this person. And I love the challenge of fighting for her.”

While all the supporting drama actresses are past nominees, only Aduba has won a trophy, last year for guest actor. Christina Hendricks’ turn in AMC’s “Mad Men” and Christine Baranski’s in CBS’ “The Good Wife” are among those in the »

How ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Modern Family’ Supporting Actors Stand Out in Ensemble

11 August 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Once the Emmy announcement comes out pundits and insiders alike contemplate why one actor gets the nom while another does not. With so many ensemble shows, there’s an endless pool of talent being considered, particularly in the supporting actor categories. The “Angry Obama” social media blitz might have led Keegan-Michael Key to get nominated while his equal billing comedy partner Jordan Peele did not. Questions remain on why “American Horror Story” casts get multiple nominations, while “Girls” or “Getting On” have just one actor chosen from the talented herd.

There’s no doubt that being part of a high-profile ensemble series boosts the chances of getting noticed. This year alone, the buzzy “Game of Thrones” fills three slots with Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke and Lena Headey. But that pales in comparison to the whopping five supporters nominated from “American Horror Story: Freak Show” with last year’s winner Kathy Bates back in the mix, »

To Live and Die in TV

9 August 2015 6:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Moments before Frank Underwood became President in House of Cards, it happened. It happened at the end of the second season of Hannibal too. Suffice to say, this brief article will spoil up to (but not including) the third season of both Hannibal and House of Cards. I have a sneaking suspicion that it’ll happen again in Game of Thrones, but we won’t know until the sixth season.

You’re still in the dark. The discussion here is death. Or, crucially, fake deaths. House of Cards spent an entire arc building Doug’s (Michael Kelly) relationship with ex-prostitute Rachel (Rachel Brosnahan), without the knowledge of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey). In the climax, as Frank’s puzzle pieces all slip into place in Washington, we cut away to Doug and Rachel and a chase that left Doug, knocked out, in the middle of a snowy forest. We reflect and judge the series so far. »

Everest’s IMAX Trailer Is As Tense As It Is Star-Studded

6 August 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

Everest had me at the cast – Josh Brolin, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal?! Heck, I still like Jason Clarke even after the mess that was Terminator Genisys. But as its September release gets closer, we’ve been getting a few trailers for Baltasar Kormákur’s climbing movie that make it look even more exciting. Imagine Into The Void, only with a larger, A-List cast, or Gravity on a mountain.

Sure, Kormákur hasn’t got the best track record – he’s the guy behind Contraband – but maybe it’s the case of picking bad projects, rather than poor filmmaking chops. That’s certainly the impression I’ve got from the atmospheric marketing campaign.

On that note, the latest trailer has just dropped. Technically it’s for the IMAX release, so as you’d expect there’s several large scale set-pieces shown – Josh Brolin »

New IMAX Everest Trailer Freezes The Internet

If you only see one film in 3D IMAX this year, Everest's combination of disaster epic and National Geographic snowscape cinematography is probably the one to don your goggles for. Contraband's Baltasar Kormakur directs Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal, and here's a new IMAX-branded trailer to give a brass monkey pause.Everest's story is of the 1996 events, made famous by Jon Krakauer's book Into Thin Air (already filmed as a TV movie with Christopher McDonald as Krakauer), in which three separate Everest expeditions ran into tragic difficulty in a sudden storm. This version of what happened is drawn from more sources than just Krakauer however, including other books and new interviews with the survivors. The screenplay is by William Nicholson (GladiatorLes Misérables) and newcomer Justin Isbell.Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner »
