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.
