Jake Gyllenhaal and Josh Brolin vs. Mt. Everest…Fight! Another trailer that came out today, Everest tells the true story of a group of mountaineers who get more then they bargained for when climbing the world’s tallest mountain. I feel like I’ve seen this before, I’m just not sure where. Correction, I do know where. Namely, every other mountain climbing movie preceding it. There are a lot of them.
Based on Jon Krakauer’s book Into Thin Air, the book they made you read in middle school, and probably scarring you in the process, I’m curious to see how they make Everest stand out from all the man vs. mountain movies out there.
