Everest - Everest is a 2015 mountain adventure film based on the real events of the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster, where eight people died in a severe blizzard. The movie shows the survival attempts of two groups of climbers in what is still considered one of the deadliest disasters in the mountaineering history.
A bank of clouds was assembling on the not-so-distant horizon, but journalist-mountaineer Jon Krakauer, standing on the summit of Mt. Everest, saw nothing that "suggested that a murderous storm was bearing down." He was wrong. The storm, which claimed five lives and left countless more--including Krakauer's--in guilt-ridden disarray, would also provide the impetus for Into Thin Air, Krakauer's epic account of the May 1996 disaster.
