Universal Pictures’ epic action adventure film Everest will be released in IMAX theaters on September 18, 2015 followed by a September 25th release in conventional theaters, and today IMAX has released a special featurette for the PG-13 film. The new behind-the-scenes featurette is brief (2 minutes) but offers a look at the film with interviews from cast members Jason Clarke, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Sam Worthington, as well as director Baltasar Kormákur and producer Tim Bevan.

The Everest cast also includes Michael Kelly, Josh Brolin, John Hawke, Robin Wright and Keira Knightley.

The Plot:

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.
