A flag has been planted in one of the most hotly contested territories of the film festival season. Everest, a new movie about the two rival missions up the mountain in 1996, has been chosen as the opening night film of this year’s Venice film festival – a spot which has recently proved itself a premier launchpad for Oscar contenders.

Last year’s Venice opener, Birdman, went on to take the Academy awards for best picture and best director, among others, while the previous year’s, Gravity, took best director and made nearly $1 billion at the box office.

Like Alfonso Cuarón’s space epic, Everest is also an English-language drama directed by a non-native speaker and using 3D technology. The 10th feature by Icelandic film-maker Baltasar Kormákur, it stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Jason Clarke as leaders of two expedition groups which encountered substantial storms on their way to the summit. Also shinning up the snow are Josh Brolin, John Hawkes and Sam Worthington, while Keira Knightley, Robin Wright and Emily Watson play concerned spouses back at home.

The film is one of London-based studio Working Title’s most ambitious projects to date, and hopes to emulate the awards success of its contender from last year – Stephen Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything. It has been scripted by two veteran British screenwriters: William Nicholson, who penned Shadowlands, Gladiator and last year’s Unbroken, and Simon Beaufoy, who won an Oscar for Slumdog Millionaire and was nominated for The Full Monty.

The writers have adapted the script from five different non-fiction books about the incident, which led to the deadliest day on the mountain until the 2014 avalanche, which some of the second unit crew were caught up in.

A trailer released for the film in June concludes with an appeal to people to donate towards relief following the Nepal earthquake in April 2015 – which triggered another Everest disaster.

Mountaineering movies have fared well both critically and commercially over recent years. In 2003, Touching the Void, a docudrama about Joe Simpson and Simon Yates’s grisly trip to the Andes, won the best documentary Bafta, while Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours was nominated for six Oscars.

Baby Knightley is here: Multiple sources tell E! Online that Keira Knightley has given birth to her and husband James Righton’s first child. The baby’s sex has been kept private for now.

Knightley announced her pregnancy in January and made headlines for her feminine, comfy maternity style (good taste that will no doubt be passed on to her kid). Congratulations to her and her family!

The beautiful cover imagery of Keira Knightley in repose might be the thing that entices you to pick up the latest issue of Violet, but the interview inside with the actress is what truly makes it a must-have. In conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, Knightley opens up about what it means to be a woman in the film industry, providing thoughtful insight into the problems many actresses—and women on the whole—face in today’s world.

“Where are the female stories? Where are they? Where are the directors, where are the writers? It’s imbalanced, so given that we are half the cinema-going public, we are half the people [who] watch drama or watch anything else, where is that? So yes, I think the pay is a huge thing, but I’m actually more concerned over the lack of our voices being heard,” Knightley states in the mag. “I don’t know what happened through the ’80s,’90s, and ’00s that took feminism off the table, that made it something that women weren’t supposed to identify with and were supposed to be ashamed of. Feminism is about the fight for equality between the sexes, with equal respect, equal pay, and equal opportunity. At the moment we are still a long way off that.”

Knightley also elaborates on her decisions to play empowered women, and says of her role as mathematician Joan Clarke in The Imitation Game: “I think it is interesting that for women in film the problems they face are generally put into the sphere of home and family and not into the workplace. Joan’s real struggles were to get her rightful ‘place at the table,’ and then once she was there, equal pay, which she never came close to.”

On Sunday Keira Knightley attended the 87th Annual Academy Awards where she was nominated in the category Best Supporting Actress for her role as Joan Clarke in The Imitation Game. Sadly she lost out to Patricia Arquette who won for her performance in Boyhood.

Keira wore a handcrafted, embroidered Valentino gown paired with Chanel jewellry to the ceremony and switched to a different navy blue Valentino gown for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

The gallery has been updated with pictures from both events (with some additions thanks to my friends Alexa and Mouza).
