This looks good, I really like both those actors with the hats on.

The book was great.
It's thick and develops slowly, there aren't many "jump scares" or page turning battle scenes. What Dan Simmons can do though, and do really well, is make you feel like you're standing at the edge of a scene watching what's happening.
The trailer looks cheap, which sucks. This should have more of a Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell style adaptation but hopefully it goes well.

The trailer also gives you almost no idea that this is about an English ship looking to discover a rumored northerly passage that would save mad time on trade. You don't stay a world power by sitting on your laurels, eh wot? Ships get stuck in the ice and have to wait winter out. What sucks though is that the Navy spent as little as possible on provisions, since finances suck, and lots of their food is bad.
That, and the fucking WINDIGO THAT MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE FUCKING MURDERING PEOPLE.

Well, Wendigos do come from people who resort to cannibalism, so there is that.

I read this last year. Fantastic book.
I picked it up because I had read Carrion Comfort and loved it - also from Dan Simmons.
He could have cut a lot of words out of the book just by saying "It's cold" in the beginning of every chapter... but man, did he convey just how cold it was!
