Kate Beckinsale Forced to Wear Layers

I have to say: I don’t actually expect much from Whiteout, the Kate Beckinsale starrer based on Greg Rucka’s graphic novel series. It’s directed by Dominic Sena (Swordfish, Gone in 60 Seconds), who was grown in a petri dish from Michael Bay’s excised tail. But, I love the concept. I really do. There aren’t a lot of movies set exclusively in Antarctica (let’s try to forget that Eight Below ever took place), and this one seems to take full advantage of their surroundings. Plus: “The first murder in the history of Antarctica” is a pretty decent little hook.

I’m also not a man who complains when Kate Beckinsale is on the big screen, either. Her co-star, The Spirit’s Gabriel Macht is not, however, anyone I care one whit for. That said: This is probably an instance where the trailer is much better than the actual movie, but if it’s half as decent, it could be worth seeing. It hits theaters on September 11th.

Anybody familiar with the comic series?
