Dominic Sena's Whiteout releases tomorrow, a continuation of the numerous desolate parka-thrillers set on Hoth. Not surprisingly, the film is reportedly awful -- scoring a current 5% tomatometer rating -- and Warner Bros. is clearly just dumping this thing off, covering their eyes, and hoping for the best.
Like I said in a post a few weeks ago, I pretty much threw in the towel on these snowbound claustrophobic artic-horror thrillers after Larry Fessenden's The Last Winter was such a unmitigated failure on every level. I think I gave it one more chance with David Slade's 30 Days of Night, but it did nothing to reverse the trend.
I'd also like to nominate Whiteout for having the worst tagline of all-time: "See Your Last Breath".
Howard Hawks and John Carpenter are rolling over in their graves this weekend.
