It might simply be a prequel but aside from the fact its still going to carry the exact same title that its 1982 predecessor had it has got one heck of a tough act to follow - or well, prequelise. John Carpenter's fantastic horror sci-fi remake (based on the 1951 sci-fi flick 'The Thing from Another World') is still one of the classic horrors of the past 30 years and so director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. has his work cut out. 'Scott Pilgrim vs The World' hottie Mary Elizabeth Winstead stars along with Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Walker ('Land of the Dead'), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Lost'), Dennis Storhøi, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Eric Christian Olsen, Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju and Jo Adrian Haavind. Let's just hope computer generated effects are overlooked on this one. Check out the new teaser poster below.

"Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller THE THING, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they’re infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up. When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew’s pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish."

'The Thing' arrives in theatres stateside and here in the UK from 14 October.
