There’s a number of weird things about Deadline Kodiak‘s post from this morning that touts an “exclusive” “first look” at some stills from Scott Walker‘s Frozen Ground – the least of which that their pictures are, in no way, shape, or form an exclusive (Collider posted them back in May, when they got them from the film’s production company, Voltage Pictures), but that’s perhaps a bit inside baseball for most of your tastes.
What is weird in a way that you, dear reader, might care about, is that the outlet folded their pictures into one really boring header that includes stars John Cusack and Nicolas Cage looking not nearly as unhinged as they should for a movie about a serial killer stalking and murdering women in Alaska by way of an airplane. It’s co-star Vanessa Hudgens (as the victim who escape real life killer Robert Hansen, who Cusack plays in the film) who looks most insane in these pictures, and she doesn’t even really look that put out. What a waste!
After the break, take a look at the pictures (thanks, Collider!) from the film, which we neglected to run back in May for some horrible, ridiculous reason (again, it’s a movie about an airplane-utilizing serial killer in Alaska that stars Nicolas Cage as the good guy), along with the film’s official synopsis.
Frozen Ground follows Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe (Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to add up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public. Risking his life, Detective Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee reveals key information about the case, Flothe is finally able to trail the killer. But will he catch him in time to save the next victim?
