Baltasar Kormakur’s New Drama ‘Everest’ Opening In Theaters September 25th

Director Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband, 2 Guns) will see his latest drama titled Everest open on big screens across the country this September 25th. Working from a screenplay by Oscar-nominee William Nicholson (Gladiator, Les Miserables) and Oscar-winner Simon Beaufoy (The Full Monty, Slumdog Millionaire), the film follows an expedition to the top of Mount Everest that quickly becomes a nail-biting fight for survival when a snow storm hits the mountain. Starring in the film are actors Jason Clarke (Lawless, Terminator: Genisys), Josh Brolin (Men in Black 3, No Country For Old Men), John Hawkes (American Gangster, Lincoln), Robin Wright (Forrest Gump, House of Cards), Emily Watson (Red Dragon, War Horse), Keira Knightly (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Imitation Game), Sam Worthington (Avatar, Terminator Salvation), and Jake Gyllenhaal (October Sky, Prisoners). Seeing as William Nicholson and Simon Beaufoy, who combined have an incredibly impressive catalogue of work, including Nell (1994), Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007), 127 Hours (2010), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), and Unbreakable (2014), on top of having an excellent cast, I’m sure this one will be much better than everybody is anticipating. The trailer is available here on MADE, so remember to mark your calendars!
