Everest: first trailer

5 June 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin and Jake Gyllenhaal star in the survival movie, Everest. Here's the first trailer...

"Human beings simply aren't built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747. Our bodies will be literally dying."

Our advice? Don't climb Everest, Jason Clarke. Stay at home. Play some Xbox.

Jason? Oh, he's already gone - and he's taken Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal and a bunch of other bearded explorers with him.

Still, their harrowing experience is our gain, as they recreate the true story of an expedition which went terribly awry following a fierce snowstorm.

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, who previously brought us the thrillers 2 Guns and Contraband, captures the dizzying highs and icy terror of being trapped in one of the most hostile places on Earth. It's also co-written by Simon Beaufoy, who's no stranger to writing stories of survival - he's previously written 127 Hours for Danny Boyle, as »

Watch: Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Keira Knightley & More Take On ‘Everest’ In First Trailer For Mountain Climbing Thriller

4 June 2015 8:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur splashed onto the international scene in the early aughts with films like “101 Reykjavík,” “Hafið,” “A Little Trip to Heaven,” and while Hollywood’s embraced him fully—see the mainstream crime thrillers “2 Guns” and “Contraband”— neither has demonstrated much auteurist vision. It’s the classic dilemma, a talented and coveted international director makes a big splash, but when they get to Hollywood, they are sucked into some fairly generic scripts and thus generate some fairly generic movies (see the problem that Swedish “Easy Money” filmmaker Daniel Espinosa has found himself in after what seemed like a promising start in Hollywood). But with Universal’s mountain climbing thriller, “Everest,” Kormákur just might find his way back on track. The movie’s cast is epic and its very much an ensemble film that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, »

'Everest' Trailer: Climbing Up Is Easy, Getting Down Is the Hard Part

4 June 2015 5:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Scaling Mount Everest is an amazing feat. But it's sort of meaningless if you don't survive the trip back down the mountain.

The first trailer for "Everest" features some breathtaking vistas as two teams of climbers - including Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Hawkes, and Sam Worthington - ascend to the peak of Everest. It's a tough, grueling trek, with plenty of dangerous moments, but they seem to triumph and bond on the way up. Then, the real battle begins, as a terrible storm threatens their lives on the harrowing journey back.

The movie is based on the true story of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, in which eight people died. The footage looks incredible, and the cast list is very impressive (the movie also features Keira Knightley, Robin Wright, and Emily Watson). Director Baltasar Kormákur shot the film in real conditions and in IMAX 3D so we can expect some jaw-dropping scenery. »

First Look: New Photos Of Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin And A New Poster From Himalayan Peak Thriller ‘Everest’

3 June 2015 4:12 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Given the earthquake that happened in Nepal, Universal's "Everest" will seem more relevant than ever. Based on a true-life story, "Everest," which features a star-studded cast, recounts a horrific 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives trying to summit the famed Himalayan peak. Details and photos have surfaced of who plays who in the movie. The movie stars Jason Clarke as a climbing guide, and Josh Brolin as his client, as well as Jake Gyllenhaal, Keira Knightley and Robin Wright among many others. "There was a cluster [of summiters] on the top," director Baltasar Kormákur told People. "In the end, what happened is that a lot of small things went wrong and waylaid them. People missed their passes, then a big storm hit." (Jon Krakauer's best-seller "Into Thin Air" was about the same events. Suffice it to say given the premise, you’re probably going to see a lot of movie stars die in it. »
