EVEREST Behind-the-Scenes Featurette

Everest Behind-The-Scenes Featurette

The first behind-the-scenes featurette for the fact-based mountain climbing drama "Everest" has been released. The film is directed by Baltasar Kormakur ("2 Guns") from a script by Mark Medoff ("Children of a Lesser God") and Simon Beaufoy ("127 Hours"), and it documents the journey of two different Everest expeditions that become trapped on the mountain by one of the fiercest snowstorms in history.

The featurette offers a quick look at the making of this spectacular-looking movie and a particular highlight is the fact that it was all filmed on location in Nepal on real mountains which should keep the CGI to a minimum. Of course, I don't expect every stunt in the movie to be executed in real conditions, because obviously the movie will feature some uniquely dangerous situations, so I assume there will be plenty of visual effects in the finished film. Anyway, it will definitely look gorgeous in IMAX.

The film stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Robin Wright, Emily Watson and Keira Knightley.

"Everest" opens in theaters on September 18th (2D, 3D and IMAX 3D).
