Here is the first clip from The Thing prequel, which was directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. The film stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Joel Edgerton and is set for release on October 14th 2011. I am actually very excited for this film. Check out the eerie clip that gives us our first look at the the "thing" 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.
