With less than a month to go for the US premiere, Lionsgate has released some action-packed brand-new clips to really whet our appetites. The Frozen Ground, written and directed by Scott Walker, tells the story (based on real-life events) of Alaskan homicide detective Sgt. Jack Halcombe's () pursuit of serial killer Robert Hansen (played by ), who over the course of three years accumulated a brutal body count of 21 young women raped and murdered near Anchorage, AK. When 17-year-old Cindy Paulson () manages to escape Hansen's murderous clutches, she teams up with Sgt. Halcombe with a strong determination to bring the serial killer to justice. The film also features (who is also one of the producers of the flick), as the big-mouthed pimp Clate Johnson. Breaking Bad fans will be sure to recognize the DEA's very own Hank Schrader (), who in The Frozen Ground also plays an officer of the law, Sgt. Lyle Haugsven; although in a slightly chillier climate than the Albuquerque we've grown used to. Be sure to check out these tension-filled clips, via BloodyDisgusting.com.
The Frozen Ground opens in US theaters on August 23rd. It has already been released in the UK on July 19th.
