‘Infinite Storm’ Trailer: Naomi Watts Stars In Wintry Survival Thriller Based On A True Story

Naomi Watts didn’t sit twiddling her thumbs during the pandemic. She instead has been busier than ever, starring in four films over the past year including The Desperate Hour which is in theaters right now. And already she has another one coming up, survival thriller Infinite Storm, which is based on a true story of bravery and heroism.

Based on the article High Places: Footprints in the Snow Lead to an Emotional Rescue by writer Ty Gagne, Infinite Storm stars Watts as an experienced climber ascending Mt. Washington, only to be forced back by an incoming blizzard. On the way back down, however, she encounters a stranded man and takes it upon herself to get them both to safety.

The film is directed by Polish duo Małgorzata Szumowska, known for the Juliette Binoche thriller Elles, and cinematographer Michal Englert. Joining Watts in the cast are Billy Howle, Denis O’Hare, and Parker Sawyers.

Bleecker Street will release Infinite Storm into theaters on March 25th.

As an experienced climber (Naomi Watts) ascends Mt. Washington, she turns back before she reaches the summit as a huge blizzard approaches. But on her way down, she encounters a lone, stranded man, and takes it upon herself to get them both down the mountain before nightfall arrives and they succumb to the storm. Based on a true story.
