Watch: 5 Clips From 'Everest' With Jake Gyllenhaal Plus New Images And More

31 August 2015 6:27 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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.

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.

Straight Outta Compton movie review: men’s anger, but only when it makes them righteous

27 August 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

The seething rage radiating from the screen elevates this above similar movies. But that rage is truncated in ways that are hard to ignore. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Even you don’t know anything about rap music, you might remember — if you’re old enough — all the late-80s national handwringing in the U.S. over the N.W.A. song “Fuck tha Police.” It’s an angry, incendiary piece of work, and whatever you may have thought about it at the time, or even still to this day, Straight Outta Compton will bring you completely to the side of the young black men who wrote and performed that song, much to the consternation of cultural watchdogs and scared white people. In this biopic of the group, director F. Gary Gray (Law Abiding Citizen, Be Cool »

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

6 August 2015 2:24 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

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 »

Jake Gyllenhaal And Co. Are At The Mercy Of Nature In Intense New Everest Trailer

5 August 2015 8:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

2 Guns and Contraband director Baltasar Kormákur took us behind-the-scenes of his upcoming biographical thriller a couple of weeks ago, detailing the trials and tribulations faced by the cast and crew as they shot on location in Nepal and the Alps. Combining real-world shoots with work in the UK’s famed Pinewood StudiosEverest is gunning for a strikingly realistic depiction of the 1996 mountaineering disaster, which proved to be one of the deadliest years in the mountain’s history.

Over the past two decades or so, the calamitous event has inspired many works of fiction and non-fiction, though Kormákur will primarily be concerned with Jon Krakauer’s best-selling, non-fiction novel Into Thin Air, which Everest draws inspiration from. With such an unflinching commitment to capturing the fear, isolation and near-unbearable environment of the world’s highest peak, the director’s latest almost demands to be seen on the biggest IMAX screen possible, »

16 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | CinemaNerdz | See recent CinemaNerdz news »

A new trailer for the film Everest was released the other day, and it looks like it might be that rare “must-see” IMAX movie. I know you’ve probably heard that line before, but this one looks like it could deliver some definite jaw-dropping moments (and maybe even a bit of drama too). Take a look for yourself.

Mark Wahlberg versus Mark Wahlberg: A tale of two actors

26 June 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

How many Mark Wahlbergs are there? I ask because I like the guy who showed up in this week's "Ted 2." I like goofball Mark Wahlberg. I like belligerent Boston Mark Wahlberg. I like dancing silly Mark Wahlberg. I like dim bulb but well-meaning Mark Wahlberg. I do not, however, care for "I'm smarter than I look" Mark Wahlberg. I do not like humorless Mark Wahlberg. I do not particularly care for serious action mode Mark Wahlberg. And when I look at the ones I don't like side-by-side with the ones I like, I find it hard to reconcile that this is all one person. So again… I ask… how many Mark Wahlbergs are there? When Paul Thomas Anderson's "Boogie Nights" was released, it was a breakthrough for the young actor, part of a banner year in his nascent acting career. He had made a few films before that, including »

Results – The Review

18 June 2015 4:00 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

For the last half a century or so, Americans have been on a seemingly never-ending quest for physical perfection. This has manifested itself in the proliferation of cosmetic surgeons, health food stores, diet books and programs, and the wide spread, often popping up overnight, health clubs (Aka spa, the gym, the fitness center, etc…). So, naturally these places would become a movie location, in comedies (in the 63′ classic original The Nutty Professor, Jerry Lewis causes havoc at a “Vic Tanny Gym”) to documentaries (the Pumping Iron flicks). Then there’s those hybrid comedy/drama/romances like the John Travolta 1984 vehicle Perfect and the Robert Altman ensemble called, simply, Health. Now, in this new low-budget “indie” flick, three unlikely (and often unloveable) characters come together when one of them heads into a health club (sounds like an old joke set-up, “A guy walks into a spa…”), hoping, needing ,to achieve eventually, »

9 June 2015 2:14 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"We're going to make this as real as we can make it." Whoa this looks crazy! Universal has debuted a short behind-the-scenes featurette for Baltasar Kormákur's Everest movie, about the 1996 disaster on Everest. The video profiles the on-location shooting in the Dolomites, to make the film feel and look as authentic as possible. It definitely works. Some of the behind-the-scenes shots from this are as amazing as the footage from the movie itself - see the first trailer. I've been anxiously awaiting this movie ever since first hearing about it, and the footage so far looks incredible and so intense. This video explains why - because Baltasar wanted to achieve "big, epic movie moments" for real. Watch this video below, then rewatch the first trailer. Here's the new behind-the-scenes featurette for Baltasar Kormákur's Everest movie, found on YouTube: For more info on the film visit the official website »

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: First Intense Trailer for Baltasar Kormákur's 'Everest' Movie

4 June 2015 8:36 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"There's no oxygen!" Universal has unveiled the incredibly intense first trailer for Everest, the movie from director Baltasar Kormákur telling the true story of one of the climbing disasters on Mount Everest. The ensemble cast features Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, and Emily Watson. They shot this on location in the Dolomites, and it looks and feels real, which is important because Mount Everest is such a spectacular and singular landmark. Thankfully this footage looks intense and not overly cheesy or dumbed down, I'm looking forward to it quite a damn bit actually. Everest is my jam, and this is my kind of film. Take a look.

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, »
