A double bill with a snow theme. 'Eight Below' (2006) is an adventure starring Paul Walker. In the Antarctic, after an expedition with Dr. Davis McClaren (Bruce Greenwood), sled dog trainer Jerry Shepherd (Walker) has to leave the polar base with his colleagues due to the proximity of a heavy snow storm. He ties his dogs to be rescued after, but the mission is called-off and the dogs are left alone at their own fortune. For six months, Jerry tries to find a sponsor for a rescue mission while his dogs fight for survival. Driven by unwavering bonds of friendship, enormous belief in one another, and tremendous courage, Jerry and the dogs make an incredible journey to reunite. In 'Snow Dogs' (2002), Miami dentist Ted Brooks (Cuba Gooding Jr) only learns that he is adopted when he receives word that his biological mother, a resident of Alaska, has died and named him in the will. Shocked and surprised, Ted travels north to claim his inheritance, which includes a set of seven Siberian huskies who have been trained as a sled team. When he then gets an offer from crusty mountain man Thunder Jack (James Coburn) to buy the dogs for the upcoming Arctic Challenge Sled Dog Race, Ted decides to stay behind and discover his roots by learning to race the dogs himself.
