THE OTHER UNIVERSALS
I mentioned in yesterday's post the outside possibility of Universal's Guillermo Del Toro's"Crimson Peak" making an appearance at The SHOW. Which led to me to think very seriously the past 24 hours about other Universal films that might have the T-ride chops if Universal makes an attempt to get them in
Honestly, the most likely Universal film to break their now-bordering-on seven-year Universal drought is Danny Boyle's "Steve Jobs" biopic starring Michael Fassbender as the Apple co-founder.

Other Universal properties that have some T-ride feel are the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt film "By the Sea" which could get a hand from The Universal Clooney Theory (addressed in a later blog post this summer) and "Everest".
"Everest" is directed by Baltasar Kormakur who previously made the trip to Telluride in 2007 with his "Jar City". "Everest" is the true story of the disaster that occurred on the world's tallest mountain in 1996. Jon Krakauer wrote about it in his outstanding "Into Thin Air" which was made into a a television film in 1997.

"Everest" does not claim to be based on the Krakauer book but is based on the same incident. Recently a trailer for the film was released which is included here as a part of a story from The Playlist:
"A PERFECT DAY" PERFECT FOR TELLURIDE?

It's a film that sounds like a Telluride choice. International cast, played at Cannes, distributed by IFC Films and it's described as a drama by IMDb and a comedy by The Playlist. Benicio Del Toro stars in a film about NGO aid workers in a war zone trying to provide clean water.
Stories accompanying the release of the trailer for the film can be found at Variety or The Playlist:
