If your looking for something that remotely looks like a Red band trailer our comrade cinephiles in Russia may have got it with this new international trailer for The Thing the
remake prequel for the classic John Carpenter sci-fi horror flick. Recently we got a glimpse at the American Red band trailer which frankly left us confused why it was red band but now the Russian trailer is here has cheered us all up a little and the trailer does contain similar footage as previous trailer but it does have a lot of new footage so it’s worthwhile biting your lip for the sake of new footage played over dubbed Russian dialogue. Even the New Russian reveals some new tidbits, the ‘things’ spaceship and it looks a majestic ship makes you wonder how big this thing is and if it was alone when it crashed? mmmm?!! There’s also a new clip arrived online via MSN which reveals the paranoia thats spreading through the Norwegian camp helping to build the tension and not to trust no one!
The Thing will be with us in Time for The Christmas spirit when it arrives in the UK&Ireland on December 2nd (USA October 14th), the movie stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ulrich Thomsen, Eric Christian Olsen and Trond Espen Seim.
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.
