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 »

Jake Gyllenhaal and Keira Knightley’s mountaineering thriller will open this year’s oldest surviving film festival, which is learning fast how to beat off competition from the likes of Toronto and Telluride
The Venice film biennale may be the world’s oldest surviving film festival, having staged its first edition in 1932, but venerable origins and a glorious past are no guarantee that Venice can secure its future. Especially if you consider its recent near-eclipse by the Toronto film festival, the near-simultaneous North American event that has in recent years become a powerhouse of international dealmaking and a magnet for world-premiere film launches. But the signs are increasingly evident that Venice is regaining its poise and making new headway in what has become a frantically competitive area of the film universe.

The Venice Film Festival gets underway this week and kicking things off is the starry survival tale "Everest." As usual, pundits will be watching the movie to see if it's an awards season contender or just a wintry thriller, or perhaps, it's both. But if you can't make it to the Lido, five clips are here to give you a healthy look at the movie before it opens in cinemas next month.

Keira Knightley smiled big while taking a sweet stroll through NYC with her husband, James Righton, on Saturday. The couple stayed close during their walk and alternated between holding hands and keeping their arms around each other. We've only seen Keira a few times since she and James welcomed their baby girl in May: the following month, they enjoyed a parents' night out at a Blur concert in London's Hyde Park, and it was only a few weeks ago that Keira revealed their daughter's name, Edie, in Elle's September issue. She gushed about her new life with baby Edie, calling it "a very primal, primal love," and opened up about admiring her postbaby body, saying, "You go through those periods where you look in the mirror and you think, 'Oh, if only I had different legs,' or arms, or whatever. You go through pregnancy and labor and then feeding the kid, »
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.

New mom Keira Knightley is all smiles! The 30-year-old actress showcased a slim post-baby body and looked radiant in a gorgeous black, knee-length dress with a pleated skirt as she strolled with her musician husband James Righton, 32, and her mother—playwright, novelist and former actress Sharman MacDonald—in New York City on Wednesday, marking one of her first public appearances since giving birth to her first child, daughter Edie. Knightley, who was photographed smiling while holding hands with her hubby, paired her look with gold, strappy, flat sandals. "Also, I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body," Knightley recently told Elle magazine. "You go »
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, »

Wizard World Chicago – the one of the largest comic book conventions in the U.S – welcomed Arrow star Stephen Amell to its stage last week and, during the question and answer session that followed, Amell addressed a number of points regarding both the fourth season of Arrow, and its implications for the wider DC universe.
Excitement among DC fans escalated recently when it was announced that Matt Ryan – star of the now cancelled Constantine series – would be reprising his role as the con-man-turned-occultist in at least one episode of Arrow. Onstage at Wizard World, Stephen Amell teased those scenes.
“I’ve been filming scenes all week long with Matt Ryan. He is such a treat. And a trip. He’s always saying his lines – and he’s getting ready to go on Broadway right now with Keira Knightley, so he’s always saying those lines too. I can’t tell »

The UK’s biggest film production company has its eyes on larger-scale films.
Working Title, whose biggest successes have included rom-coms Four Weddings And A Funeral and Bridget Jones’s Diary, is looking to make more big-canvas films in the vein of Les Miserables and Venice opener Everest.
Speaking to ScreenDaily ahead of Everest’s world premiere on the Lido next Wednesday (Sept 2), Working Title co-chair Tim Bevan said the company would like to produce more films on the scale of the $60m adventure-thriller, which is the company’s first 3D feature:
“I think it’s very much something we want to do, yes: intelligent popcorn [movies] at a scale,” he said. “It’s fun to do a bigger movie.”
Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley, Jason Clarke and Emily Watson are among the stellar ensemble cast of Baltasar Kormakur-directed Everest, which charts the events surrounding the 1996 Mount Everest disaster when a climbing expedition was devastated by a severe »

Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions bought worldwide rights to "The Meddler," starring Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne and J.K. Simmons, before the start of the production and will distribute internationally. Sony Pictures Classics will handle the 2016 North American release. Written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, the film will world premiere at the The Toronto International Film Festival. On the strength of her screenplay for "Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist," Scafaria wrote and directed 2012's "Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World," starring Keira Knightley and Steve Carell, which was not well-reviewed. In "The Meddler," recent widow Marnie Minervini (Susan Sarandon) decides to start a new life, moving from New Jersey to Los Angeles to be closer to her daughter (Rose Byrne). Also starring are Cecily Strong, Jerrod Carmichael and Michael McKean. Produced by Joy Gorman Wettels of Anonymous Content, »

The September issue of Elle has a special twist: in honor of the magazine's 30th anniversary, it's rounding up quotes on what it's like to finish out your 20s and head into the next decade of life. Anna Kendrick is one of the actresses to sound off on the subject, and she did not hold back. We've gotten used to getting tons of laugh-out-loud moments from Anna, so it should come as no surprise that some of her quotes dish a heavy dose of humor. Read on to find out what she said, and then catch Keira Knightley's words on therapy and body positivity. On what being 30 means: "I guess I'll find out in a lot of ways. I started calling myself 30 when I turned 29. I feel really ready for it. I feel like in your twenties you have to put up with a lot of bullsh*t. I »
Much like past seasons, Arrow Season 4 is set to introduce quite a few new characters pulled directly out of the DC comic books. Heck, it's even bringing back Hellblazer from the failed NBC series Constantine, with Matt Ryan set to reprise his title role. But there are two superhero characters who we've been told will never show up on the small screen. The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel. And we only have Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to blame for that. But Arrow star Stephen Amell doesn't think it will always be this way. He actually envisions a day when Bruce Wayne will come to Star City (yes, Starling City is getting a name change this year).

Stephen Amell appeared at Wizard World Chicago today, and had plenty to say about what's to come when he transforms into Green Arrow later this year. Confirming that he's already shot scenes with Matt Ryan for Constantine's appearance in Arrow season four, the actor had nothing but good things to say about working alongside the Welsh actor. "I've been filming scenes all week long with Matt Ryan," he told fans in attendance. "He is such a treat. And a trip. He's always saying his lines -- and he's getting ready to go on Broadway right now with Kiera Knightley, so he's always saying those lines, too. I can't tell if he's having a conversation with me, or preparing. And sometimes I chime in, he'll be like 'I wasn't talking to you, mate.'" It's going to be interesting to see if Ryan's new acting commitments stop him from making »
The D23 Expo had their Marvel and Star Wars panels yesterday, giving those at the conference a chance to catch a sneak peek at some of the biggest properties coming later this year and beyond. Among them: a new director to the Star Wars, a new cast member for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, a run-time for The Force Awakens, and a preview at upcoming Pixar movies.
After J.J. Abrams directs The Force Awakens and Looper director Rian Johnson helms Episode VII, Colin Trevorrow, who most recently directed the massive hit Jurassic World, will go behind the camera for Star Wars: Episode IX. Trevorrow is set to direct Book of Henry next as well as help write the sequel to Jurassic World with Episode IX coming out in 2019. It isn’t the most inspired choice, even though Trevorrow just made nearly a billion dollars with Jurassic World, »

Motherhood looks good on Keira Knightley! The "Imitation Game" star, who welcomed a baby girl in May, puts her incredibly hot post-baby bod on display on the (many) covers of Elle's September issue. Sporting a sexy Ralph Lauren Collection leather jacket with black bikini bottoms, the actress proves that she's already bounced back into shape. Check out her tiny waist! In her first post-baby interview, the new mom can't help but gush about her new addition, Edie. "The love thing is astonishing. It's a very primal, primal love. That's quite extraordinary. And the ability to have no sleep and continue going," she tells the mag. "It's not pleasant—I never thought that I could actually do it for the amount of time that I've done it." It seems having a baby has helped Keira learn to love her body. "I have to say, as a woman, you hate certain parts of your body. »
