Mar­got Rob­bie and Michael Fass­ben­der were orig­i­nally cast to star as Alex and Ben.

KATE WINSLET de­vel­oped arthri­tis in her toe af­ter work­ing on the film. She ex­plained that it was “be­cause my char­ac­ter in­jures her leg very, very badly so I had to limp for al­most the en­tire film and be­cause I was load­ing so much weight onto the one side”.

The film was shot in Canada, on the bor­der of Al­berta and Bri­tish Columbia prov­inces, on peaks 3 000 me­tres tall.

Cin­e­matog­ra­pher Mandy Walker said di­rec­tor Hany Abu-As­sad “wanted ev­ery­thing to be as re­al­is­tic as pos­si­ble. And the ac­tors were so amaz­ing. We re­ally went to those lo­ca­tions and went up to be­tween 10 000 and 11 000 feet [3 050-3 350m], we got up in a he­li­copter, and it got down to -40°C some­times”.
