Ster-kinekor releases the gripping drama Everest in IMAX 3D, for a truly immersive big screen experience


EVEREST: the IMAX 3D Experience® releases onto Ster-Kinekor’s five IMAX® screens around the country on Friday, 18 September. If there is one film that should be experienced in the immersive IMAX theatre, it is EVEREST: a film that features the highest mountain in the world as its central character should be viewed on the country’s biggest screens.

This gripping human drama is based on the true story of two Everest expeditions in 1996. It will have audiences on the edge of their IMAX seats, gripping onto their ropes and each other, as they make the perilously dangerous climb to the summit of the world’s highest mountain, step by laboured step with the film’s characters.

The IMAX release of EVEREST has been digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of An IMAX 3D Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology.

The crystal-clear images coupled with IMAX's customised theatre geometry and powerful digital audio, create a unique environment that will make audiences feel as if they are in the movie – and on the mountain!

Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, EVEREST documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expedition teams, challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.

Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.

This epic adventure stars a stellar cast of actors including Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal. The film is produced by Baltasar Kormakur.
