Universal Pictures announced today that director Baltasar Kormákur’s Everest will hit theaters in 3D and IMAX 3D on September 18, 2015, nearly seven months after it’s originally announced February 27 release. It is the first film to claim the new date.
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everestdocuments the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind. Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.
The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal. They are joined by Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly and Thomas M. Wright.
