Warner Bros. has unveiled a clip from The Mountain Between Us, the upcoming survival drama starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.
The film follows two strangers who are forced to rely on each other when a tragic plane crash leaves them stranded on a remote snow covered mountain. “You actually think we’re going to make it?” Winslet’s character, Alex, asks Elba’s Ben. “No,” he responds. “My instinct tells me that we’re going to die up here.”
Having talent like Elba and Winslet bouncing off each is an enticing prospect on its own; have them together in a dramatic survival tale and our interest in well and truly piqued. There’s some good talent here. Apart from the cast, there’s Isreaeli filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad, known Oscar-nominated films Paradise Now and Omar, and writers Chris Weitz (About a Boy, Rogue One) and J. Mills Goodloe (The Age of Adaline).
The Mountain Between Us, also starring Beau Bridges and Dermot Mulroney, opens in the US on October 6 and arrives Down Under on October 12.
