Narrated by internationally acclaimed actor Liam Neeson, Everest is the story of the world’s tallest mountain and one of the greatest human adventures ever filmed for IMAX® and giant screen theatres. A dramatic, true account of dizzying achievement, Everest follows the expedition of four climbers on their journey to the summit of Everest, just days after the infamous 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives in a deadly storm, a story chronicled in Jon Krakauer’s best-selling book Into Thin Air.

Featuring the first-ever IMAX images brought back from the mountain’s summit, Everest is also the fascinating story of how this iconic mountain was formed, how high altitude challenges a climber’s mental and physical capabilities and how Sherpa culture and tradition permeates the Everest experience. Above all else, Everest is a story of triumph over adversity and of the true power and resilience of the human spirit.

Originally released in 1998 to critical acclaim, Everest shattered all previous giant screen attendance records and became the most successful giant screen film in history. Now, digitally remastered in 16k resolution in celebration of the 25th anniversary of this historic expedition, Everest will reach a new generation of audiences around the world.
