I’ve known for sometime that Hollywood was making a movie that based around the events that took place on Everest back in 1996. The all-star cast that includes Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal, Robin Wright, and Keira Knightley was announced ages ago. Yesterday, the first trailer for the film was released, allowing us to get our first look at the film which is set for release on September 18. You’ll find that trailer below.
I will admit that the film looks intriguing, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that Hollywood may have made a good mountaineering film for a change. Some of the dialogue in the trailer is a bit clichéd however, and there are a lot of overly dramatic scenes too. Hopefully those are just being played up to hype the film, and the full movie will offer a good look at the events that took place on the mountain. Either way, you know I’ll be headed to the theater to catch this one. The scenery and cinematography alone look like they will be worth it. We’ll find out in a few months. Meanwhile, take a look for yourself.
