EVEREST Trailer Pits Man vs. Nature
Freezing cold temperatures, incredible physical fitness and mental strength, it takes a lot climb Mount Everest. The new Universal Studios picture Everest follows two expedition teams as they try to conquer the tallest peak in the world while faced with a snowstorm headed their way.
With stars like Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke and Josh Brolin, this film is packed to the brim with testosterone and manliness. While it seems like the bulk of the film will focus on their descent from the mountain, in the midsts of a massive storm, I hope they don’t glaze over just how difficult the climb is on a good day. Many men have died trying to get to the top, and making it seem easy could cheapen their personal stories.
Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, the movie recaps the true story of a 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that several climbers dead.
