Jake Gyllenhaal climbs a mountain, Lana Del Rey releases an album and Shane Meadows brings This Is England to an endMore
Sections of the press are calling Everest 'this year's Gravity', in reference to the film's considerable achievements in CGI and its potential to finally convince you its worth wearing a pair of silly 3D glasses in a cinema. In that sense, they're right: this dramatisation of the 1996 mountaineering disaster on the world's highest mountain, that claimed the lives of eight climbers, is visually stunning and almost certainly the closest most of us will ever get to conquering the thing for real.
Where it differs from last year's space epic is that it is a real story covering real people, and ocasionally manages to stir your emotions as well as make you gasp. An underused Jake Gyllenhaal feels the cold alongside Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Emily Watson, while Robin Wright and Keira Knightley almost steal the show as the wives waiting back home.
Everest is out Friday 18 September
