There’s a big new movie coming out in September titled “Everest.”

Here’s how it’s described:

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 epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Based on what it says on its website, the movie’s producers are also working to raise funds to help Nepal recover from the recent earthquakes. I hope that’s true.

As I’ve mentioned many times, Everest is a major unit in our ninth-grade English curriculum.
