One thing this year has lacked is thrilling, true action films; however Everest looks to fill the void with the true story of the 1996 Mount Everest expedition that turned deadly. With an all-star cast and stunning visual effects, Everest appears to capitalize on the record-breaking year in film. It has the potential to have a monster opening; however could prove to be the stereotypical rescue mission.
Everest brings on tons of impressive cast members including Jake Gyllenhaal (Southpaw), Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game), Robin Wright (House of Cards), and Josh Brolin (Avengers: Age of Ultron) among the many. If this stunning cast isn’t enough to get you to the theater, Everest brings in a wonderful special effects team from the Harry Potter franchise to help this movie shine above the rest. From the trailers, Everest’s cinematography looks to rival that of Interstellar and Inception. With this great combination of excellent casting, wonderful plot, and stunning visuals, Everest could become the Interstellar of this year.
Although this film may have to follow some ridiculously successful films, (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road) Everest could stand out for its completely different and unique style. It will be an exciting and thrilling trip to the theater when Everest is released September 25th.
