The Mountain Between Us Trailer

"Look, I don't want to die up here because you're too scared to take a risk." 20th Century Fox has debuted the first official trailer for a dramatic survival thriller titled The Mountain Between Us, starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba and survivors of a plane crash in the mountains. It's yet another survival story set in desolate snowy mountains, similar to The Grey, but it's also about the relationship between these two people - who were strangers before the crash. This was filmed up in Canada, and it looks beautiful, but also deadly. "I think optimism and hope is crucial to survive," director Hany Abu-Assad tells USA Today. This looks solid, with these two very talented actors leading the way. Where did the dog come from? See below.

Here's the first official trailer for Hany Abu-Assad's The Mountain Between Us, direct from YouTube:

Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection in order to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. When they realise help is not coming, they embark on a terrifying journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing one another to endure and igniting an unexpected attraction. The Mountain Between Us is directed by Oscar-nominated (for two of his Foreign Language films) Dutch-Israeli filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad, of the films Rana's Wedding, Paradise Now, Do Not Forget Me Istanbul, The Courier, Omar, and The Idol previously. The screenplay is written by Chris Weitz and J. Mills Goodloe; based on the novel by Charles Martin. Fox will release The Mountain Between Us in theaters everywhere in the US starting October 6th later this fall. Who's interested in seeing this?

    It's nothing new, of course, but those two make an interesting couple, or a team, or whatever you call them when they end up together out there in frigging snow ...

    Sorry, but my first thought was that now someone wrote a „The Revenant“ for Kate... and they are going to eat the dog, I am sure of it!

    Ugh, I just don't see Idris Elba as a leading man. He was great in Beasts of No Nation and has had some good supporting roles (Prometheus) but I rate him as more of a small screen guy.
    • Bo
      Really? each his own, I reckon, but man oh man do I disagree with you. I think it's great he's gotten this kind of role because he's a man of huge talent and deserves this opportunity. Just sayin....
      • TAH
        He certainly is a man of talent, no denying that. Maybe I've seen him on too many Sky adverts!
        • Bo
 so. He is coming out as one of the leads in that big adaptation of King's book...which I'm not a fan of...what is it? The Dark...something...Matthew Mc is playing the villain or whatever. Not my cup of tea kind of movie, but happy for Elba because he is as you say, 'a man of talent'. Cheers.

            'The Dark Tower'.

            Thanks, Mark. I hit it on imdb later, which I probably should have done while posting, but I knew someone, if not everyone here on this site would know of what I was referring to. Thanks again. Cheers.

            You're welcome, bud.

    I'm surprised at my positive reaction to this trailer. I liked everything about it starting with the title. Then the two very talented actors. I've always like Elba and look forward to seeing him in this kind of role; a big one for him which I couldn't be more delighted. I like him almost as much as I do Tom Hardy. And yea, where did that dog come from? It didn't seem to be on the plane with them and I think a bit of an error in marketing with a trailer with this kind of open question present. I'll still take a look at this movie, for sure even for no other reason then to find out where the heck that dog came
    Looks like Idris's coat would for sure not keep him warm enough. // I do like the dramatic vibes the trailer is giving off.

    I love these kind of stories, plus Kate Winslet & Idris Elba look really good in this. On side note the director Hany Abu-Assad is Dutch/Palestinian filmmaker.
