The movie Everest tells the tale of what was at the time, the single most disastrous day on Mount Everest in 1996. Two of the survivors of that tale went on to write books about their experiences. Despite this, both Simon and William decided not to use those books as the basis of their movie. Instead, they authored a new story that was inspired by the events.

Of course, that didn’t stop those five little words from showing up at the very beginning of the movie. So if Everest wasn’t based on the books written by the survivors, how much did Hollywood sacrifice in telling this tale?
