Let me be entirely clear: I will pay to listen to Kate Winslet read the phone book, my grocery receipt and my phone bill. So naturally when the first trailer for The Mountain Between Us was released this morning, it immediately played on a loop through lunch.
While the trailer reveals the fact that both lead actors (Winslet and co-star Idris Elba) survive the tragic plane crash, it appears that what happens after the fact is more interesting. Stranded in the middle of nowhere, the two strangers must somehow bond in order to survive the elements and get back to civilization.
Intense and action packed, The Mountain Between Us appears to center entirely on our two leads, creating an intimate journey that will challenge each of them as they discover what lengths they will go to save the life of a stranger.
The film, which is directed by Academy Award nominee Any Abu-Assad, is set to hit theaters October 20.
