The new red-band trailer shows off some new footage and gives us a bloody good look at some of the horror that awaits us in the movie. Unfortunately it looks like there's a lot more CGI work in the film than I expected. I was hoping for more messing, gritty, and bloody practical effects, but it doesn't look like that's going to happen. The movie still looks like it will be entertaining though, and there are going to be some pretty crazy moments. Watch the trailer below and hit us up with your thoughts! The movie is set to be released on October 14th.

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.
