Universal Pictures is pushing the Baltasar Kormakur-directed 3D adventure Everest to September 18, 2015, seven months later than its original date of February 27. It now avoids going up against Warner Bros romcom Focus starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie and Ryan Reynolds’ sci-fi thriller Selfless, moving into a weekend where nothing is currently scheduled. Everest, Working Title’s mountain-climbing disaster pic backed by Cross Creek and Walden Media, stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Jake Gyllenhaal. The pic is based on the disastrous 1996 attempt to scale the world’s tallest mountain. Three different expeditions were hit by a sudden blinding storm, resulting in the deaths of eight climbers.
