THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US | 10.20.17 | Fox | Idris Elba, Kate Winslet

Recommended Posts

I tried searching the archives but it seems there's no thread for this.


Based on the 2010 novel by Charles Martin which is described as follows:

On a stormy winter night, two strangers wait for a flight at the Salt Lake City airport. Ashley Knox is an attractive, successful writer, who is flying East for her much anticipated wedding. Dr. Ben Payne has just wrapped up a medical conference and is also eager to return home to Jacksonville, FL for a slate of surgeries he has scheduled for the following day. When the last outgoing flight is cancelled due to a broken de-icer and a forthcoming storm, Ben finds a charter plane that can take him around the storm and drop him in Denver to catch a connection. And when the pilot says the single engine prop plane can fit one more, if barely, Ben offers the seat to Ashley knowing that she needs to get back just as urgently. And then the unthinkable happens. The pilot has a heart attack mid-flight and the plane crashes into the High Uintas Wilderness-- one of the largest stretches of harsh and remote land in the United States.

September-October 2017 has way too many action/thriller films IMO



All I See Is You

American Assassin

The Solutrean

Friend Request

American Made


The Foreigner


Granite Mountain Hotshots

The Snowman

The Mountain Between Us

Cloverfield 3


And that doesn't include IT, Blade Runner 2049, Kingsman 2 and Ninjago (likely to be the top 4 films for the fall period)


American Made and Geostorm should have come out August 11th and September 1st, respectively. August is weak enough and Geostorm could easily break the Labor Day OW record with a good marketing campaign.


Hopefully one or two more move to different dates (December 8th as a platformer might work; MLK weekend as a wide opener could also work), because they'll all hurt each other's potential as the four above, My Little Pony and Boo! 2 take up quite a few screens.

According to BOM, this was moved up to 10/6/17.

Going up Blade Runner and MLP is an interesting choice. It should be relatively fine given those movies really only appeal to their fanbases. It will screw Fox out of bigger auditoriums, though.
