What if your life depended on a stranger?

This is the exact question Kate Wisnelt and Idris Elba face in the first trailer for 20th Century Fox’s The Mountain Between Us, directed by Academy Award nominee Hany Abu-Assad.

Stranded after a tragic plane crash, two strangers must forge a connection to survive the extreme elements of a remote snow covered mountain. They embark on a perilous journey across hundreds of miles of wilderness discovering strength they never knew possible.

How the two will survive is anyone’s guess, but dying alongside a stranger seems like the most absurd possibility of all. As the new trailer shows, the mountain does not lack for danger. In addition to the cold and dark, there are also mountain lions and slippery slopes.

Take a look at the first stills and trailer below.

The Mountain Between Us is set to hit theaters on October 20.
