Few people live to ever tell the story of climbing Mt. Everest. Director Baltasar Kormákur and what could be this year’s strongest ensemble cast — read: Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, and Keira Knightley — will do just that with this fall’s harrowing survival epic, Everest.
Based on a true life story, the film follows two teams who brave one of the most violent storms on record while conquering one of Earth’s most unforgiving tests. Kormákur worked with his A-list talent in real life conditions and shot the whole staggering adventure in IMAX 3D to give us all heart attacks. See if you can handle the first trailer below.
