Mountain climbing on its own can be quite a dangerous activity, but it gets infinitely worse when you decide to climb the highest mountain on the planet. And that’s made abundantly clear in a new international trailer for Everest.

The mountain-climbing drama takes an impressive ensemble cast that includes Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal and hikes them up Mount Everest, which sits at the cruising altitude of a 747 according to the trailer. However, it’s not getting to Everest that proves to be the more dangerous part. It’s getting home.

Now an Everest featurette shows what that was like for the stars of the film, and you can watch it below. Read More »
