Watch: New Trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s ‘Everest’

Universal has released a new trailer for Jake Gyllenhaal’s mountain climbing thriller “Everest,” three months ahead of its September 18 release.

The trailer offers spectacular footage of the world’s highest mountain before showing climbers stuck in snow during brutal blizzard conditions.

Directed by Baltasar Kormákur, the movie recaps the 1996 multi-expedition assault on Everest that left eight climbers dead. Gyllenhaal plays Scott Fischer, with Jason Clarke as Rob Hall, Josh Brolin as Beck Weathers and John Hawkes as Doug Hansen.

Producers are Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Tyler Thompson, as well as Nicky Kentish Barnes.

Jon Krakauer’s bestseller “Into Thin Air” chronicled the commercial expeditions that were caught in a blizzard on the mountain, but is not the basis for the film. “Everest” had been adapted for the screen by Mark Medoff (“Children of a Lesser God”) and Simon Beaufoy (“Slumdog Millionaire”).
