I’ve been a huge fan of both Whiteout and Whiteout: Melt (and eagerly await the 3rd). When I learned of a film adaptation based on the Eisner Award winning book by Portland locals Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber, I went into fanboy overdrive. Up to and including pestering Steve for any tidbits whenever I ran into him and being the Nicest Guy in Comics (that is his official title by the way, ask pretty much anyone). Sadly, his reply was always “dude, if I had news I’d tell ya”. Well, we fans finally got a trailer!
Okay, now that you’ve seen the trailer, I want to fill you all in with some very important information. Contrary to what the trailer attempts to convey (in my rarely humble opinion), Whiteout is not a horror film. It isn’t a slasher movie. It isn’t any kind of monster movie. Whiteout is a very tightly written and illustrated piece of noir fiction. Please Dark Castle, don’t pitch this movie as a horror flick starring that chick from Underworld. Hopefully Kate turns in a good performance of Carrie Stetko, I’ll even forgive you guys for not casting the actress we fans wanted.
Anyway, now that you’ve watched the trailer, I demand you all go out and buy the graphic novels.
