"Everest"- The movie that's got Nepalese hyped up and every reason to watch.

Some good news for Nepali movie watchers. This newly released trailer of Everest will surely make you want more out of the movie.

Based on a true story, the trailer shows the breathtaking climb to the Everest, and struggle to reach back to the base. The cast starting with Jason Blarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhall heads on to this epic journey to reach the summit of Everest.



The trailer showcase the survival of character Jason Clarke who successfully summits Mt Everest but on the way back, he encounters a storm along with other climbers. When he is about to loose hope, the character played by Keira Knightley who is his wife in the movie, talks to him about not giving up and believing in hope. What happens next and who survives, you've got to watch the movie to find that out. The movie is set to release on September 18, 2015.



The official Everest Movie site describes the movie as:
Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents 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 Movie looks adventurous but the lack of involvement of the locals "Sherpa" in the trailer might be a point of concern for some Nepalese viewers. Sherpa are well known for their skills in climbing Mt Everest. The trailer releases only a month after the massive 7.8 Richter scale earthquake that devastated Nepal. It also affected the Everest region (Sagarmatha in Nepali) killing several climbers. This is only the second major disaster after a year ago which killed a record highest climbers in Everest that stopped the climbing season for that year.

With the recent earthquake in Nepal taken into accounts, the film makers of Everest along with +Universal Pictures have joined in supporting the earthquake relief in Nepal. For more information about the movie click on EverestMovie.
