I’m hoping that this is the movie that finally cements Idris Elba’s leading man status. Granted, he has The Dark Tower hitting theaters this year as well, but I’m hoping this pairing with Kate Winslet is a game-changer for the former The Wire star. Based on the 2011 novel by Charles Martin, The Mountain Between Us stars Elba as a surgeon and Winslet as a photojournalist struggling to survive after a horrific plane crash. Not only do we have a trailer, but we also have some pics courtesy of USA Today.
The Mountain Between Us hits theaters on November 18th, 2017.
Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. When they realize help is not coming, they embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness, pushing one another to endure and discovering strength they never knew possible. The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Hany Abu-Assad and stars Academy Award winner Kate Winslet and Golden Globe winner Idris Elba.
