The Mountain Between Us Trailer Starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba


Smaller scale survival thrillers seem to be a relatively rare beast these days, existing only around awards season and usually based on a true story. But this year Fox is bringing out a movie called The Mountain Between Us that is, surprisingly, not based on a true story but rather a novel by Charles Martin. Idris Elba and Kate Winslet play a previously unacquainted surgeon and journalist who find themselves stranded in the snowy Uinta Mountains in Utah after a small plane crash. Directed by Palestinian filmmaker Hany Abu-Assad (Omar), the story apparently has a romantic component as well, although the trailer doesn’t really hint at it. The Mountain Between Us hits theatres on Oct. 20th where it will go up against two other disaster movies, Geostorm and Granite Mountain Hotshots. Check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.

    Looks really cool Sean. And I love movies set in snow so I’m onboard for a mountain between us between Geostorm and a Granite Mountain Hotshots, just between us.

    So, basically The Grey with two people and no wolves?
