Just a quick reminder to everyone that the new film Everest goes into wide release in the U.S. and other parts of the world this weekend. The film, which starts Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, and Jake Gyllenhaal, tell the story of the infamous 1996 climbing season on the world’s highest mountain. The film debuted in IMAX theaters last weekend, but will now be showing on hundreds more screens starting today.
If you haven’t read my review on the film yet, you’ll find it by clicking here. You can also watch the trailer for it below. If you’re still undecided about seeing the film, I’d say that if you are a regular reader of this blog, and enjoy the mountaineering coverage I provide, it is worth it for you to check the movie out in the theater. The cinematography alone make for quite an experience on the big screen.
