If you've already seen Nord Wand (North Face) — which I highly recommend — and are wondering when another worthy climbing movie will come along, there is hope. The Wildest Dream, featuring a Burberry-clad Conrad Anker on a mountaineering quest, is coming to regular and IMAX theaters in the U.S. in August 2010.
The Wildest Dream is the story of the last days of adventurer and
Mount Everest climber George Mallory — the man who may or may not have
been the first to scale the world’s highest peak. After
disappearing 800 feet from the summit in 1924, Mallory’s body was never
found — until present-day climber Conrad Anker discovered it, frozen and
intact, in 1999. Using replica 1920s-era clothing and equipment, Anker sets out to solve
the great mystery of whether Mallory succeeded in summiting Everest before he died.
