Kate Winslet and Idris Elba brave ‘The Mountain Between Us’ in first trailer

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.

You can watch the trailer above. Here are some first look stills:

About Erik Anderson

Erik thanks his mother for his love of all things Oscar, having watched the Academy Awards together since he was in the single digits; making lists, rankings and predictions throughout the show. This led him down the path to obsessing about awards. Much later, he found himself at GoldDerby, led by Tom O’Neill and then migrated over to Oscarwatch (now AwardsDaily), headed up by Sasha Stone before breaking off to create AwardsWatch. He is a member of the International Cinephile Society, GALECA (The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics), the International Press Academy and is the founder/owner of AwardsWatch.
