With the realization that Tom Holland will be the new Spiderman, and Joel Kinnaman is Rick Flagg in the upcoming Suicide Squad, it reminds me of how we tortured them with a Sudbury winter a year ago. The film (yet to be released) was called Backcountry while shooting but has been re-named to Edge of Winter.
Having been dragged through the Northern Ontario wilderness, often at night through snow, ice and even a dunking in the lake, there must've been something in the Sudbury snow to help make super heroes out of these two. Probably their hard work at their craft and inherent skills also had something to do with it.
Also starring the very talented Percy Hynes-Whyte and Rachelle LeFevre, I'm looking forward to seeing how the Northern Ontario magic will advance for their own super hero careers.
Kinnaman plays Elliot Baker, who seizes the chance to develop a better relationship with his sons when his ex-wife Karen (LeFevre) and her new husband take a vacation and leave the boys with him. What starts as a bonding opportunity turns into a nightmarish adventure when they get stranded in a deserted cabin near the lake as night falls and a snowstorm rages. Bradley (Holland) and Caleb (Hynes-White) quickly learn more about their father and what they truly mean to him in this gripping tale of family and survival.

Just love dressing up, dressing other people up and talking about it. A lot. And laughing too.
