Must Watch: First Teaser Trailer for Dominic Sena's Whiteout

An unofficial teaser trailer for the comic book adaptation Whiteout has finally popped up online. This is another one of those Warner Brothers projects (like Trick 'r Treat) that has been delayed for an excessively long amount of time. This was actually shot in early 2007 and even had a presence at Comic-Con a few years ago. But since then they've kept hidden at the studio. It's now officially set to hit theaters in September and this is the first teaser. Kate Beckinsale stars as US Marshal who flies down to Antarctica to investigate a murder. It looks like a claustrophobic thriller reminiscent of The Descent, but set on Antarctica instead.
Note: Warner Brothers has allowed us to put this back up - but it's not the official trailer for the movie.
Watch the first trailer for Dominic Sena's Whiteout:
Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) 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 plunged 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 brothers Jon and Erich Hoeber as well as brothers Carey and Chad Hayes (House of Wax, The Reaping). This is an adaptation of Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's graphic novel of the same name. Warner Brothers will finally release Whiteout in theaters on September 11th.
