movie facts

The film debuted at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2017. 20th Century Fox theatrically distributed The Mountain Between Us in the U.S. on October 6, 2017. The film grossed a $62.3 million worldwide vis-à-vis a production budget of $35 million. Prior to its release, the film had been in the works since January 2012, with Mexican director Gerardo Naranjo attached to the project as the director. In November 2014, Abu-Assad was hired to replace Naranjo. Abu Assad noted that he never envisioned an epic love story against the backdrop of survival, saying that the core themes in the film are optimism and hope. He said these two values are crucial in survivorship. The lead roles of Dr. Ben Bass and Alex Martin went through several casting changes. Bass’ character was initially given to Michael Fassbender in 2012, but he had to drop the role due to conflicts with his schedule. Charlie Hunnam was then cast to replace Fassbender in 2014. He dropped the role in December 2015. For the role of Alex Martin, Margot Robbie and Rosamund Pike both came into negotiations with the filmmakers, but both withdrew the role in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
