Beyond the Edge, a doc movie based on Sir Edmund Hillary’s journey to the summit of Everest  released on Oct 24  sets a local box office record of $320,170 for the weekend.

Sir Edmund Hillary and his Nepalese guide Tenzing Norgay Sherpa, successfully conquered Mt. Everest in May 29, 1953. The real story long time ago, portrayed in the colorful motion picture is able to connect well with the 35+ year old demographic and beyond.

Beyond the Edge, a 3D film by Leanne Pooley takes the audience through the challenging geographical conditions of Everest Region all the way to its summit. The movie also shows why Edmund Hillary rightfully made himself a national as well as international hero.

Pooley said: “It’s really exciting for me to hear people are going to the movie and experiencing for themselves the exhilaration of Sir Ed’s incredible achievement.”

Producer Matthew Metcalfe added: “I am delighted that New Zealanders are discovering the incredible story behind Sir Ed and the conquest of Everest.
