Everest will be a disastrous thriller full of life changing moments. The film is actually based on a true story depicting a climbing expedition on Mt. Everest that ends in turmoil once the hikers encounter a severe snow storm. The events that took place actually occurred in 1996 when eight people were caught in a blizzard and died on Mt. Everest during summit attempts. This notoriously led to 12 people losing their lives and has been noted in history as one of the deadliest days on Mount Everest.
The film features an awesome cast featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Clarke, and John Hawkes. I’m sure Jake Gyllenhaal will shine throughout the film as he never disappoints when selecting a film role; although Southpaw tanked IMO. I think it’ll also be cool to see how this real life situation is portrayed on the big screen.
The release date is set for September 18, 2015. Be sure to add it to your calendar as a film to see this Fall and be sure to let us know your thoughts on the film.
