Universal Pictures has released the very first trailer for it’s upcoming adventure film, Everest, and it is intense. The trailer gives us a glimpse of some of the obstacles a team of mountain climbers face when their life-long dream of getting to the peak of Mount Everest, suddenly turns into a nightmare.
Based on true events, Everest follows the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur (2 Guns), the film stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal.
The film was shot on location in Nepal on the foothills of Everest, the Italian Alps and at Cinecittà Studios in Rome and Pinewood Studios in the U.K and will hit theaters on September 18.
Hopefully, the movie will be available in 3D in Nigeria. It feels like watching it in 2D won’t give me as much thrill as this movie has to offer.
