Fri 3/10: Everest (Cinemax)
Based on the 1996 tragedy that took place on the mountain, Everest is both a story of strength for the human spirit and the unrelenting elements. Director Baltasar Kormákur actually took the star-studded cast (including Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin, Jason Clarke) to shoot on location in the Himalayas. “There was a moment when we rounded the bend, and I could just see that top piece of Everest. It made me understand the drive to be a climber,” says Michael Kelly, who plays writer John Krakauer.
