Second Breathtaking Trailer for Baltasar Kormákur's 'Everest' Movie
"There is a massive storm headed your way!" Catch the second trailer for Baltasar Kormákur's Everest movie, the intense adventure thriller based on the real story of a climb up Mount Everest gone bad. We've seen one trailer and a featurette already, but this second one shows a bit more and has a breathtaking "holy crap!" feeling. There's also some very tricky editing, as that part where Josh Brolin is climbing over the big crevasse on the ladder is not actually after the scene where they reach the summit, that's part of the climb very early on on the mountain. But it all ties together at the end, and they really sell the intensity and sheer awe of this. I really can't wait to see it! Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley & Emily Watson. See the trailer below.
Here's the second official trailer for Baltasar Kormákur's Everest, found on YouTube:
Everest is directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) and written by Mark Medoff (Children of a Lesser God) and Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours). The film follows a treacherous attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, documenting the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. The climbers (Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal & John Hawkes) face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a struggle for survival. Universal will scale Everest on September 18th.
