Everest Director: We Need to Make Films That Feel Real

     Everest director Baltasar Kormákur was feeling on top of the world at the 1)film premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre1 in Hollywood.

Kormákur was joyful when he learned that mountaineer Alison Levine2 called the film 2)trailer the most accurate film 3)portrayal of Earth’s highest mountain. It was an achievement the director wanted to make while filming at the Italian 4)Alps and near 5)Everest’s South Base Camp in Nepal.

“When I heard that they were making this movie I thought, ‘Oh great, another 6)cheesy movie that seemed so unrealistic,’” Levine said on the red carpet. “I could not believe how close this trailer looked to the real conditions on Everest. This, to me, looks like the most realistic climbing movie I’ve ever seen.”

And she would know. The explorer accomplished the Adventure Grand Slam in 2010—climbing the highest peaks on all seven continents and reaching the north and south poles. “The 7)ever-present 8)howl of the wind and the 9)scrape of boots on snow are kept in just the right balance with the characters’ voices.” Justin Chang wrote in his review.

The chilling story in Everest follows the 1996 climbing 10)expedition, where eight people lost their lives after a 11)severe snowstorm. At the time, the disaster marked the mountain’s largest 12)death toll during a single season.

“The crew had the hardest time because you have to walk up the mountain and then…you have to shoot for twelve hours,” Kormákur revealed about the most difficult filmmaking effort. “There were 13)avalanche warnings every day on the 14)course, we had to 15)evacuate. We lost our sets due to the avalanches, but what I liked about it was that you’ll look up at the mountain and wonder, ‘What is this mountain going to let me do today?’ ”

He stated that Josh Brolin3 was the most “16)macho” on set and that the actor 17)weathered through his fear of heights while filming. Actress Naoko Mori4 also 18)felt up to the challenge to conquer a 19)potentially dangerous role.

“There are no cars, no 20)heating, no facilities and basically we had to carry everything by ourselves,” she started. “Lunch would be like two boiled eggs and a bit of Yak cheese…but we loved it.”

“I just felt like we should do everything that we could possibly do with the elements,” the director responded. “the more that we make the Marvel Studio5 films fantastic for what they are, the more we need to 21)contradict that and make films that feel real.”

 

在好莱坞TCL中国剧院举行的电影首映礼上,电影《绝命海拔》的导演巴塔萨•科马库感觉自己站在了世界的巅峰上。

当得知登山家阿莉森•莱文称该电影预告片是对地球至高峰最为准确的电影写照时,科马库十分欣喜。这名导演在意大利的阿尔卑斯山脉和在靠近珠峰的南大本营的尼泊尔拍摄期间,就是想要取得这一成就。

“当我听说他们正在拍摄这部电影时,我就在想,‘噢,这下好了,又是一部似乎很不真实的俗气电影’,”莱文在红毯上说道。“我难以相信这个预告片看起来竟能和珠穆朗玛峰上的真实状况如此接近。对我来说,这是我看过的最为真实的登山电影。”

而且她应该知道。这位探险家在2010年完成了探险大满贯——登上了七大洲上的各个最高峰,还到达了南北两极。“呼啸不止的风声和靴子在雪地上的刮痕声与电影里人物的声音达到了最佳平衡。”贾斯汀•张在他的影评中写道。

《绝命海拔》中这个令人恐惧的故事改编自1996年的那次攀登远征事件。在这次远征中,一场严重的暴风雪使八人丧失了性命。当时,这一事故创下了珠穆朗玛峰上单个季节里最大的死亡人数纪录。

“工作人员迎来了最艰难的时刻,因为你必须走路上山,然后……你还要在山上拍摄12个小时,”科马库透露了在电影制作过程中最艰难的部分。“在拍摄过程中,每天都会有雪崩警告,我们不得不撤离。因为雪崩,我们失去了我们的设备。但我喜欢的一点是,你可以站在山上远眺并且感叹:‘这座山今天会让我做些什么呢?’”

他说,乔什•布洛林是片场上最有“男子气概”的,他在拍摄过程中克服了恐高症。女演员森尚子同样接受了挑战,征服了一个有着潜在危险的角色。

“在那里,没有车,没有暖气,没有工具,基本上我们都必须自己搬东西,”她说。“午餐就是两个水煮蛋和一点牦牛奶酪……但我们很喜欢。”

“我只是觉得我们应该做我们可能做到的一切,”导演回应道。“我们越想让漫威影业的电影保持一贯的出色水平,我们就越需要去挑战环境,并且做出真实的电影。”
