Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
Such a gloriously cheesy trailer! Forget 30 days of night — it’s about to be six months of night in Antarctica… and a killer is on the loose! And Kate Beckinsale takes showers in sexy steamy bathrooms! rawr!
I can almost hear the ominous voiceover ominously announcing: “In a world where it’s the bottom of the world, and they were out looking for meteor samples…” dum dum DUM!
Director Dominic Sena’s track record — Swordfish, Gone in 60 Seconds — does not give me much hope for this one. Neither does the participation of screenwriters Chad and Carey Hayes, who wrote the awful The Reaping and the worse House of Wax.
At least there’s a couple of cute guys to ogle: Alex O’Loughlin and Gabriel Macht. I bet they don’t get to take showers in sexy steamy bathrooms, though. Damn.
Remember: “Nature never intended for you to survive here.”
Whiteout opens in the U.S. and the U.K. on September 11.
