The Mountain Between Us Trailer or: If You’re Gonna be Stuck in the Wilderness, at Least Let it be With Idris Elba
Here’s is a trailer for a flick that I hadn’t heard of till about, oh say, five minutes ago. It appears to be a survival flick that could go either of two ways.
#1 – It hits all those glorious survival movie sweet spots that haven’t been hit for us since The Grey in 2011, and is deemed one of the best movies of the year.
#2 – It’s just a vanilla two performance movie that comes and goes, and is completely forgotten two weeks after it is released.
I am certainly hoping for door #1 here, and I will be going to see the film, simply because Idris Elba is in it (I after all did go see No Good Deed for that very reasons, and this flick has to be better than that). I am worried though that the Wiki for The Mountain Between Us has it listed as a “romance-disaster movie” which must be a new sub-genre. Let us just hope that the emphasis is on disaster more than romance, though a little romance will be tolerated if the disaster elements are strong. Oh, and after you watch the trailer, I am sure that you’ll agree that the titular “Mountain” must be figurative, no?
