Whiteout trailer gusts in

Kate Beckinsale battles the elements – and a murderer

It seems to have been coming for ages, but it looks like the Kate Beckinsale thriller Whiteout might finally see the light of day.

At least there’s a new trailer online, which you can see below.

It’s set in the atmospheric, frozen wastes of Antarctica, where a chilly voice-over reminds us there’s no permanent human settlement because the conditions are so bad.

But in this cold domain, murder has struck, and it’s up to Beckinsale as a US marshal, alongside The Spirit’s Gabriel Macht, to investigate.

It’s directed by Dominic Sena, and adapted from Greg Rucka’s award-winning graphic novel so there are both negative and positive aspects to this.

That it’s been sat on the shelf for so long is not a good sign, but check out the footage and decide for yourself if you think it’ll be worth seeing…
