Following on from its debut at Comic-Con, we've been sent the trailer for Whiteout, the new thriller from Optimum Releasing starring Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Vacancy). Set in the wilds of Antarctica, the film sees Beckinsale play a US Marshal who has to deal with her very first homicide...The investigation is made more difficult as the Antarctic sun will soon be setting for several months, so US Marshal Stetko has to race against the clock - and the cold - to find the killer. But when UN Special Agent Robert Pryce (Gabriel Macht, The Spirit) is sent to monitor the investigation the case takes a deadly twist, and a decades-old secret is revealed.
Based on the award-winning graphic novel by Greg Rucka, Whiteout is directed by Gone in 60 Seconds and Swordfish helmer Dominic Sena - who also directed the under-rated Kalifornia - and is co-produced by Joel Silver. It's due to hit cinemas on September 11.
