Custom Preset to Match "Children of Men"

Hello gang. Anyone have any suggestions for a preset that would emulate the look of the cool outdoor scenes in "Children of Men"? We have a client that wants that look.

Here's a link to the trailer on youtube:

I'm sorry I don't have the time to develop the look right now but I would guess it's something along the lines of pulling the cgn into negatives (maybe -3 or 4) adjust your color matrix to get a bluer colder tent I would then put the shutter to something like 100 or 125. Sorry I can't be more help.
