Ten years ago, Oni Press published a graphic novel called Whiteout, written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Steve Lieber. (Originally published as a four-issue miniseries.) I liked it quite a bit.
Just now, I happened across a trailer for a movie adaptation of the comic, due out in theatres this coming Friday, with Kate Beckinsale in the lead role.
I confess that the trailer made me a little dubious. The comic was, iIrc, a thriller, set essentially in the real world. The preview makes the movie look like a horror movie, and possibly a supernatural horror movie.
But I think that's just a misleading trailer (or else I'm misinterpreting it), because a posting from a couple of years ago quotes Rucka as saying, at Comic-Con '07:
I'm stunned, they've taken the best we've created and have turned it into a movie. There are things we would've loved to have done on the comic book page, that we couldn't do.
And from what I remember of the comic, Beckinsale seems like good casting. So I'm cautiously optimistic.
That makes something like five or six movies that I want to see that are currently in theatres. I better go see some of them before they disappear.
