Here is the first trailer for The Thing prequel from director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., and stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Joel Edgerton. The Thing was supposed to come out on April 29th of this year, but that didn't happen. The film is now set to be released on October 14th 2011.
The paranoia is rampant as ever in this film from the looks of the trailer. I loved Edgerton in Animal Kingdom and am excited to see him in this. Winstead looks awesome as a female lead. Check out the trailer below and share your thoughts:
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.
