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.

Kate Winslet’s casting in the upcoming “Steve Jobs” biopic opposite Michael Fassbender is proof that sometimes an actor can benefit from playing against their “type.” As Joanna Hoffman, a “feisty immigrant,” Winslet had to convince producer Scott Rudin she was right for the part. “I could feel that the powers that be weren’t overly intrigued by the idea of me playing this role, maybe because physically, facially, I didn’t look like a Polish-Armenian immigrant,” she told Vulture. “But sometimes you have to convince people....” Written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by Danny Boyle (“Slumdog Millionaire”), “Steve Jobs” is set to drop Oct. 9.

Universal has debuted a poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, which is about to premiere and start earning real buzz with critics/journalists. I've heard from numerous places that the film will be premiering at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day, and it will also play at the New York Film Festival in October. We've already seen a couple of trailers so far, and it looks way better than I was expecting, though I'm very curious to see how much of an influence Boyle had. Since I'm perhaps more intrigued by Sorkin's script than anything else. Michael Fassbender plays the iconic black-turtleneck-wearing tech innovator Steve Jobs. Here's the newest official Us poster for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs film, direct from Universal. Thoughts? You can also still watch the full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs right here, if you're interested. Steve Jobs is directed by Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, »

The new dubbed version of Isao Takahata's movie will come out in Us cinemas for the first time in 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of its original release.
"With this 25th anniversary release, a broad new audience will now be able to discover what passionate supporters have known for years," said David Jesteadt of Gkids, which has full North American rights for the movie.
Watch the Only Yesterday trailer below: »
Bringing together Slumdog Millionaire star Freida Pinto and Ryan Kwanten as John, the film opens with the latter character, a dueller disillusioned after he no longer feels the adrenaline rush from his daring sport of choice. That leaves Kwanten’s protagonist with one choice: to seek out and find the elusive Zorringer (Mickey Rourke) and challenge who many consider to be the true expert in the field. Along this journey he’ll cross paths with Pinto’s Colt, and the pair have been described as “gunfighters and sometimes lovers, on parallel but very different journeys through an underground dueling culture.”
Though the plot doesn’t exactly leap off the page, the international trailer harbors enough gritty action and stylized set-pieces to hold our interest. »

On August 15th, Mr. A.R. Rahman along with a host of special musical guests and singers returned to The O2 in London after five years in a very special show to perform his greatest hits. Check out our special report.
The Warm Up
A. R. Rahman. Live in concert. To say my expectations were high before the show would be a little bit of an understatement. I had heard rumours that hearing Rahman live should be on every music lovers bucket list, and it had been on mine for a while.
Having missed his performance at various arenas and having this opportunity land was a dream come true. A one night only concert and I wasn’t about to give it up….
I packed myself off to enjoy my first night out in 8 months, and what better way to spent it than in the company of a music maestro. Mr. »

"What you make isn't supposed to be the best part of you! You're a father..." Universal has debuted an extended 60-second TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs movie, starring Michael Fassbender as the late technology innovator Steve Jobs. We've already seen two trailers for this already, but this new TV spot throws in some extra footage, including that line quoted at the start about how he's supposed to be a father (maybe they're focusing on that part of the story in the marketing more?). The cast includes Kate Winslet, Seth Rogen, Katherine Waterston, Jeff Daniels, and Michael Stuhlbarg. This looks outstanding. Here's the new extended TV spot for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs, direct from Universal's YouTube: You can also still watch the full-length trailer for Danny Boyle's Steve Jobs here, if you're interested.

This year, the Oscar-winning director is set to bring festivities to an end once more, with organizers revealing on Thursday that his latest feature Steve Jobs would close the 2015 edition of the annual event.

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.

Here's one of those 'This'll make you feel old' factoids - it's two years since the last ever episode of Skins aired.
E4's groundbreaking hormone-fest wrapped up on August 5, 2013 - with an older Cook (Jack O'Connell) heading off into an uncertain future at the close of 'Rise (Part Two)'.
Cook was but one of 27 major characters featured on Skins across three 'Generations' - in a total of 61 episodes, split into seven series. But where are the teen tearaways of Roundview College now?
Hoult played Tony Stonem - the pre-eminent bad boy of Skins - across its first two series. Later badly hurt in a traffic accident and forced to rely on others, Tony had mellowed by his final episodes.
Jason Clark, Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin in Everest Icelandic filmmaker Baltasar Kormákur’s Everest, the story of two expeditions to climb the world’s highest mountain, will be the opening night-film at the 41st Deauville American Film Festival on September 4, the organisers have announced today. The film features Josh Brolin - who also stars in the festival's closing film Sicario.
The film also has been slated to open the 72nd Venice Film Festival just two days earlier on September 2.
Kormakur’s previous films include The Deep, which was shortlisted in the foreign language Oscar category, as well as the English-language films Contraband and 2 Guns.
The script is by William Nicholson (Gladiator) and Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire), who were inspired by the incredible events surrounding a treacherous attempt to reach the summit of the world's highest mountain. »

Record-breaking Indian comedy drama “Pk” will get a theatrical release in South Korea in September.
Specialty distributor Waw Pictures has announced a Sept. 3 date for the Rajkumar Hirani-directed picture fronted by Indian superstar Aamir Khan.
The Utv / Disney-backed picture was an unsurprising hit in India and normal diaspora market, but also obliterated box office records for an Indian movie in China. Released in May this year, it grossed $19.4 million. (U.K. earnings were $3.17 million, while in North America it topped $10.6 million.)
Indian films have had flurries of success in Korea. After the global sensation of British-made, Indian-set “Slumdog Millionaire,” Indian originated films including Hirani and Khan’s ‘3 Idiots” and “My Name Is Khan” became hits with some 450,000 ticket sales for ‘3 Idiots.”
Since then, however, other titles have struggled as the novelty of Indian films pales and as exhibitors become less tolerant of two and a half hour running times. »

Scott Foundas: Well, the cat is really out of the bag now. After weeks of intense blogosphere speculation about the fall festival season and palate-whetting gala announcements from the New York Film Festival, the Toronto Film Festival kicked things into high gear this morning when it announced more than 40 titles that will comprise the festival’s Gala and Special Presentations categories come September. It’s a typically starry list, full of A-list names in front of and behind the camera, some very obvious Oscar bait, and a few Toronto stalwarts to satisfy the requisite quota of local Canadian talent, including Atom Egoyan, who makes a bid for a comeback (after the career-pummeling one-two of “Devil’s Knot” and “The Captive”) with “Remember,” starring Christopher Plummer as a Holocaust survivor trying to track down the former Nazi guard responsible for murdering his family.
Egoyan’s film is listed by the »
