Vertical Limit Out On Friday
Oops, we got that one wrong. The Hollywood K2 epic actually goes on general release later this week
Oops, we got that one wrong:. Vertical Limit, the new Hollywood
epic based around a dramatic rescue on K2 and starring Chris
O'Donnell actually goes on general release in the UK this Friday 19
January and not last week as we erroneously told you.
Sorry about that, seems like the effects of Peak District altitude
finally got to us and wiped out a few of the surviving brain cells.
Anyway, be warned that you can expect to come across an awful lot of
grumbling climbers muttering darkly about authenticity, the ludicrous
climbing sequences etc, but what the hell, since when has Hollywood
entertainment been realistic?
Watch out for mountaineering legend Ed Viesturs making a cameo
appearance as, er, himself actually. More information from our
previous articles - link at the bottom of this page - or check out
the UK official Vertical
Limit site you can download a Vertical Limit screensaver too
And if you want a laugh, check out this
part of the site which features diagramatic boy and his numerous
clickable altitude problems - useful to know if the heating fails in
the cinema while you're watching...
