Two strangers who are caught up in a terrible accident are left stranded from civilization in an inhospitable region of the globe with only one another to survive. So goes the story for Hany Abu-Assad’s adaptation of The Mountain Between Us starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.
A brand new featurette has just been released chronicling the production of the film and Abu-Assad certainly pushed his stars to the limit in this intense love story. Check it out below:
From watching the featurette it becomes rather clear that Elba and Winslet were up for anything, and really got stuck into the landscape and the film’s intense stunts. But while The Mountain Between Us has the two stars jumping into freezing lakes and dangling off the sides of cliffs it also is a powerfully dramatic story bound by themes of hope, survival and above all else love.
The Mountain Between Us will arrive in cinemas on October 19 in New Zealand and Australia and on October 20 in the US and UK.
