Kate Beckinsale portrays a U.S. marshal in Whiteout

Kate Beckinsale portrays U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko in Warner Bros.'s upcoming action thriller Whiteout.

Antarctica. The coldest and most isolated place on earth. Temperatures drop to 120 below. Winds whip across the ice at over 100 miles an hour. Home to one of the deadliest forces in the world—the whiteout.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents the action thriller Whiteout, starring Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Gabriel Macht (The Spirit), Columbus Short (Stomp the Yard) and Tom Skerritt (Contact). The film is directed by Dominic Sena (Swordfish) from a screenplay by Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber and Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes, based on the graphic novel by Greg Rucka and Steve Lieber.

Antarctica is a place U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko (Beckinsale) won't miss. As the lone law enforcement agent at the Amundsen-Scott Research Station, her tenure here has been not only harsh but uneventful. In three days, when the station powers down and the sun sets for the long winter, she'll be getting out; leaving Antarctica for good and turning in her badge for a new life.

But when a body is discovered in the no-man's land on the open ice, Stetko is plunged into a shocking mystery. Bizarrely battered and miles from camp, the dead man is Antarctica's first homicide victim and Stetko's first real challenge in a long time.

Her investigation soon involves U.N. Special Agent Robert Pryce (Macht), sent to monitor her progress in this ungoverned territory. As the case takes a deadly twist and a 60-year-old secret is unearthed, Stetko herself becomes a target. Pryce could prove to be a powerful ally—but only if solving the murder is what he's really after.

With only days before the last plane out, Stetko must race to unravel the mystery or risk being stranded on the ice as darkness—and the killer—closes in.

Whiteout is produced by Joel Silver, Susan Downey and David Gambino. Executive producers are Steve Richards, Don Carmody and Greg Rucka. Co-producers are Richard Mirisch and Adam Kuhn. The creative team includes director of photography Chris Soos, supervising editor Stuart Baird, film editor Martin Hunter and production designer Graham "Grace" Walker. The costume designers are Wendy Partridge and Nicoletta Massone. Music is by John Frizzell.

Opening soon across the Philippines, Whiteout is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
