Now the two strangers must rely on each other to survive in the cold wilderness.

Turns out, they made the wrong decision, and they wake up in the wreckage of the small plane high up in the snowy mountains where they can either wait for help or make the trek down by themselves. But when bad weather hits, their flight is cancelled.

The recently released trailer for the film begins by setting up why Elba's Ben and Winslet's Alex need to get where they're going as soon as possible- Ben has to perform emergency surgery, while Alex is getting married. If it's the latter, that's adorable.

Acclaimed Israeli filmmaker Hany Abu-Asad (Paradise Now, Omar) directs from a screenplay by Chris Weitz (About a Boy, Rogue One) and J. Mills Goodloe (The Age of Adaline, Everything, Everything). Following the crash, they must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain.

I remember hearing about this film a year or so ago. The film, as is based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Charles Martin, was set to star Margot Robbie and Michael Fassbender, then Rosamund Pike and Charlie Hunnam, in Winslet and Elba's respective roles at different points during its development. It's a sin that they haven't been in a movie together before, honestly.
