Hollywood Movie Whiteout Based in Antarctica and on Reality, but Overall Fiction
I just read an interesting article about the new upcoming movie Whiteout, which I comes to theaters tomorrow, September 11, 2009. The article talks about how the Antarctic aspect is actually based in the real science/facts of Antarctica with less fiction license than some might think. Of course, to me it seem obvious that it was, but I guess those unfamiliar with Antarctica would think they are exaggerating in the trailer about 200 MPH winds and the cold temperatures. It is mostly a fictional plot, though, in regards to the murder and their even being a US Marshal stationed there, although it seems the station manager is actually deputized by the Marshal service.
