If you haven’t read Jon Krakauer’s book Into Thin Air then that’s some crazy shit right there son. It’s awesome. Buy it. Read it. Donate all your money to ReelGood in thanks. The book details the 1996 Everest disaster, in which a group of climbers heading to the summit were hit by an enormous storm. What makes the book so incredible is that Krakauer himself was one of those climbers, so is not only able to relate the event first hand but is able to do it in an exceedingly readable way because writing be what him for a livin’ doin.’ Everest is based on that book and our enthusiasm for Into Thin Air coupled with this very impressive trailers means that it’s one our most anticipated films of 2015. Get that into your heads.
