The most isolated landmass on the planet,
No official government,
No permanent population…
Temperature: 120 Below zero
Wind speed: 200 miles per hour
No horizon! No Shadows!
There is only White…
“A U.S. marshal (Kate Beckinsale), the only one assigned to Antarctica, must investigate a murder on the frozen continent within three days before the arctic winter begins. She crosses paths with a U.N. operative (Gabriel Macht), also investigating the murder.”
The movie Whiteout is an adaptation of the 1999 comic book of the same name by writer Greg Rucka and artist Steve Lieber. In the comic book the crime is just an excuse to show how harsh Antarctica can be: The frozen continent is all white, it’s no paradise, it’s like hell!
Judging from the movie trailer of Whiteout it seems that Dominic Sena’s take is faithful to to the source material and still manage. That’s probably why Greg Rucka himself applauds this film adaptation.
The movie Whiteout will be released on September 11, 2009.
