A new TV spot has arrived for the Matthijs van Heijningen Jr helmed horror prequel 'The Thing'. The movie which precedes the events of John Carpenter's 1982 original (of the same name! 'eye-roll') stars the gorgeous Mary Elizabeth Winstead -below ('Scott Pilgrim vs The World'), Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Walker ('Land of the Dead'), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje ('Lost'), Eric Christian Olsen ('Dumb and Dumberer') and Ulrich Thomsen ('Season of the Witch'). I'm actually looking forward to this. I must admit when I first heard the news that they would be remaking one of my favourite horror films of all time I just wanted to punch something however from the things I've seen and heard of the project so far I'm slowly coming around. It's a pain I live in the UK though as I'll have to wait till December to check it out. Our US readers however can catch it in theatres next month! Check out the new clip 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' opens in US theatres from 14 October and from 2 December here in the UK.
