First Look: Kate Beckinsale in Dominic Sena's Whiteout

Warner Brothers has also debuted a few new photos from Whiteout this weekend, which as far as I know, are the first public photos we've seen from the film. Ever since we ran that poster for Whiteout a few weeks back, people have become increasingly interested in the movie, which has been delayed for a long time. I really don't even know why it's being delayed, but I'm honestly a bit worried. Whiteout is based on Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's beautiful black and white graphic novel and stars Kate Beckinsale. This reminds me a lot of John Carpenter's The Thing, but without the science fiction elements.

I really think Warner Brothers needs to put out the trailer for this as soon as possible. Especially while it's still winter and the snow is falling (in certain parts of the country). I've got a good feeling that this will turn out pretty damn good, although it may not be anything that incredible. What do you think?

Carrie Stetko is a lone U.S. Marshal assigned to Antarctica whose investigation of the continent's first murder draws her into a shocking mystery. Now, with only three days until winter, Carrie must solve the crime before Antarctica is punged into darkness and she is stranded with the killer.

Whiteout is directed by ex-music video director Dominic Sena, of Gone in Sixty Seconds and Swordfish previously. The screenplay was written by newcomer brothers Jon and Erich Hoeber (Montana) as well as brothers Carey and Chad Hayes (House of Wax, The Reaping). The film is an adaptation of Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's graphic novel of the same name. Warner Brothers has been delaying the release of this extensively, but currently has Whiteout schedule to hit theaters on September 11th, 2009.

    yea..it looks a bit like The Thing...sounds entertaining! I love those kind of movies...darkness, snow.."like 30 days of night"...

    Well thank god Kate is in it that means the acting will be good. However, the part about "ex-music video director" and newbie screen writers helming this doesn't sound promising. Hope I'm wrong. I'll still go see it cuz Beckinsale is in it and it seems like the type of flick I would enjoy watching.
  • For a moment when I read the name Carrie Stetko, I thought this was a spin-off on Lopez's character from OUT OF SIGHT, but then realized her name was Caren Sisco or something, right?

    I think that Kate Beckinsale is HOT! DC should seriously consider her for "Wonder Woman", if not "Smallville's" Erica Durance. 😀

    I've been wanting to see this for awhile.

    Why would you send ONE US Marshall to investigate a murder on the most dangerous landscape in the world?
  • dave13
    looks like a fun movie. and we don't know that they only sent one person. i would imagine she was sent, with like 2 other people that are insignificant characters that are the first to die after her arrival. it'll be like a game of clue! the butler, in the snowmobile, with the knife. it's always the butler!

    The comic book was a pretty cool thriller. I'd also like to see Rucka's Queen and Country made into a movie too.
  • drew
    its a comic book? why am i not surprised.... i had a brief hope for a split second that this was original material. ....oh well. still might see it

    Secret-Asian-Man: she was already there when it happened, according to the graphic novel.
  • harrison
    hope they work on the editing, that gun clearly looks like they just slapped it on the picture there and threw a couple snowflakes on it, but sounds like a decent plot finally
  • tyler wilson
    this should kick ass.
  • decent plot, great actress. I love Kate Beckinsale.
