I found this while reading the Outdoorzy Blog over the weekend. It’s a movie trailer for John Krakauer’s Into The Wild. Apparently the movie is set to be released this September, and is being directed by Sean Penn.
For those that haven’t read the book, and I recommend it highly, it’s about a young man named Christopher McCandless who graduates college, gives away his possessions, and donates his life savings to charity. Then, he moves to Alaska, where he wandered off into the wilderness to live. Four months later he was found dead. Several notes and letters, along with a diary, were later discovered at his campsite, and they tell the desperate tale of him trying to survive. Great book. I hope the movie is worthy of the title, but since Krakauer is one of the screen writers, I’m thinking it should be worth watching.
