A girl. A boy. And a dog.
Thrills and chills punctuate the first trailer for the adventure saga The Mountain Between Us starring Oscar-winner Kate Winslet and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba.
When their charter plane crashes on a snowy mountain, two strangers (Winslet and Elba) must fight to survive the elements in this thriller from Oscar nominee Hany Abu-Assad (Paradise Now, Omar).
The film was written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (About a Boy) and J. Mills Goodloe, based on the book by Charles Martin. It co-stars Beau Bridges and Dermot Mulroney and was produced by Chernin Entertainment’s Peter Chernin and Jenno Topping. The film has an October 20th release from 20th Century Fox, a date that also includes the limited release of Amazon’s Wonderstruck plus six other wide releases (including Universal’s The Snowman and Warner’s Geostorm).
There’s no awards traction for the film at the moment and both Winslet and Elba have other fall projects that align them with Oscar (she with Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, he with Aaron Sorkin’s Molly’s Game) but good box office and reviews here will boost them there.
