Movie Poster: Kate Beckinsale’s Whiteout

9 Comments

We haven’t heard a whole lot about Kate Beckinsale’s Alaska mystery-thriller “Whiteout” ever since the movie was announced many moons ago, and a Frank Miller version of the poster surfaced a while back. Now finally we have something to report — well not really, but something to show you, anyway. Eagle eye reader Don recently sent in this latest poster for “Whiteout” (thumbnail to your left, bigger version below), which is based on a limited series comic book by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber.

“Whiteout” is about a U.S. Marshal who is sent to Antarctica to investigate the continent’s first homicide, and has to do it within three days before the sun vanishes and is replaced by a long and dark 6-month winter. It will star Kate Beckinsale, Gabriel Macht, Tom Skerritt, and will be directed by Dominic Sena (“Swordfish”).

Update: Steve Lieber, one of the original creators of the comic, believes the poster, while well made, may have been produced by a fan and is not official. You can read his thoughts here.

    Beckinsale’s character from “Whiteout” is British in the comic book, right? Why not just keep her British? Oh, well…

    Hey there. I’m the artist of the Whiteout graphic novel. First off- thanks for the attribution! A lot of sites covering the movie don’t take the trouble to mention the guys who did the comic.

    In response to B.L. Wooldridge above, Kate Beckinsale’s playing Carrie Stetko, a U.S. Marshal. She’s an American in the comic as well as the movie. There’s a supporting character in the comic who is British, Lily Sharpe, but she isn’t in the movie. Her place in the story is filled by Gabriel Macht.

    I’m not sure if this is a real poster for the movie or if it’s just a really nice design by a fan. I covered this today on my studio’s blog:

    Thanks for the feedback, Steve.

    If this is a fan made poster, wow, it looks pretty good. Very professional. I’ve made a note of it on the original entry.
