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

"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.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Baltasar Kormákur's Everest, direct from Universal's 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.

    Looks amazing, watching it for sure. I have spent a good hour and a half watching youtube clips about Everest expeditions after this. The human spirit is boundless and ever curious to find its limits. People that go up to 8,5km of altitude are one more proof of this. Makes me think of what I could do if I set my mind to it. Now that I did the inspirational thing, I really dig Jason Clarke, he looks like a normal guy, right? There's nothing crazy hollywood about him.

    There are some gross inaccuracies here for example the Asian Sherpa with the oxygen mask. They don't need them nor all the expensive high end clothing and equipment that Westerners require to survive. They're totally acclimated.
