First Photos: “The Mountain Between Us”

The first photos have been released from Hany Abu-Assad’s “The Mountain Between Us,” the upcoming survival drama starring Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.

Based on the 2011 novel by Charles Martin, Elba plays an in-demand surgeon and Winslet a bride-to-be photojournalist – strangers who survive a plane crash and must trek through hundreds of miles of freezing wilderness while attempting to be rescued.

Shot in Canada on the border of Alberta and British Columbia, in temperatures that could freeze eyelids shut, Winslet reportedly braved plunging into ice cold water at base camp to film her character falling through thin ice.

The film is set to open on October 20th.
