Great International Poster for Dominic Sena's Whiteout
Warner Brothers recently released an international poster for Whiteout, a freezing cold comic book adaptation starring Kate Beckinsale that has been delayed for quite a while. Whiteout is based on Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber's graphic novel that Oni Press published in 1998. It was first announced early last year and was entirely shot and in the can by May of 2007. Since then, Warner Brothers has kept delaying it, pushing its release all the way to September of 2009. I'm not sure if we'll ever get to see it, but we at least have a fairly awesome poster to hold us over for another year. This reminds me a lot of the poster for The X-Files: I Want to Believe - but this time I actually want to see this movie. Take a look!
Those of us lucky enough to attend Warner Brothers' presentation at Comic-Con in 2007 were treated to a full length trailer for Whiteout. However, we have never seen a single second of footage since then. It looked pretty damn good and I think it'll turn out great in the end, we've just got to wait a very long time.
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.
I'm intrigued! I'd love to check this one out!

That's a hell of a tagline! I may be a bit too much of a wuss to see this one in theatres, we'll see. It looks terribly intriguing, though.

"See your last breath" sounds kinda cheesy at first, but then when you realize there's an actual significance behind "see", it makes it really creepy. The preface sounds mildy intrigueing. We'll just have to wait for a teaser/trailer.

I don't know anything more about this apart from that synopsis below the poster, but Kate Beckinsale sells this for me.

This was a great graphic novel. Artwise, it was done wonderfully, and written well, so that you want to see more. I believe the team that did this graphic novel also did a series called "Queen and Country", or at least Greg Rucka was part of that one.
