When Everest comes to theaters this September, its goal is to transport viewers to the unbelievable terrain of the famous mountain. One way it hopes to do that is by taking full advantage of IMAX 3D technology. In fact, the film will get a soft launch at only IMAX theaters for its first week, before a wider release the following week.

There’s now an IMAX trailer for your viewing pleasure, to get you hyped for the filmgoing experience that Everest hopes to be. You check it out right here:

Inspired by the incredible events surrounding an attempt to reach the summit of the world’s highest mountain, Everest documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.  Their mettle tested by the harshest elements found on the planet, the climbers will face nearly impossible obstacles as a lifelong obsession becomes a breathtaking struggle for survival.  The epic adventure stars Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Robin Wright, Michael Kelly, Sam Worthington, Keira Knightley, Emily Watson and Jake Gyllenhaal.

Everest will arrive in IMAX theaters on September 18, then everywhere else on September 25.
