Get a taste of what Kate Beckinsale has to face when she has to solve the first murder happening in Antarctica before winter covers the whole continent in darkness.
Its theatrical release is fast approaching, and with that in mind, "Whiteout" gives out more sneak peeks into the film's actions and thrilling moments. As much as seven clips from the drama thriller have made their way out. All of these snippets feature Kate Beckinsale's Carrie Stetko and focus on her investigation of the murder case.
Taking place in the continent where "nature never intended you to survive", this movie follows U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko as she delves deep into the first murder case in Antarctica. Three days before Carrie is planned to depart back to home after two years stationed at Antarctica's South Pole research base, a body turns up on the ice.
The lone U.S. Marshal is thus immediately thrust into the murder investigation. But, the deeper she gets into the investigation, the death toll mounts and the mystery deepens. Facing shifting loyalties, deadly whiteouts, and a relentless killer who will stop at nothing to protect a secret buried for over sixty years, she has to race against time before Antarctica is plunged into six months of darkness and she is stranded with the killer on a land where nothing comes in and no one gets out.
Based on the 1999 comic book of the same name by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber, "Whiteout" is directed by Dominic Sena. Kate Beckinsale is joined by Gabriel Macht, Alex O'Loughlin and Columbus Short among others in the cast ensemble. September 11 will be the date this Joel Silver and Susan Downey-produced movie hits U.S. theaters.
