When we kids we all want to explore investigate, dissect and a grown up warns you off to leave things as they are you’d think  when become an adult that streak of curiosity would disappear right? Wrong! In the remake  sorry Prequel for John Carpenter’s classic sci-fi horror  The Thing, when a team of Norwegian researchers in the Antarctic perform a simple experiment they release alien creature from its frozen ice prison a move that made you wish you listened to your parents and leave things as they where!

Universal Pictures via IGN have released a new red band trailer for The Thing but why this is a red band trailer remains a mystery as Toyah Wilcox used to sing . This does look a virtual carbon copy of the original but that doesn’t mean its a bad film but what the trailers strength is the fact we get some nice new glimpses of the creature which does aggressively scary old chap,this trailer does however give a slightly better glimpse at May Elizabeth Winstead stepping out of the shadow of Ramona  Flowers stepping up and handling a lead role pretty well.

Still a little while to go until UK catches this one  on December 2nd (Ireland, USA  October 14th), The Thing also stars Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ulrich Thomsen andEric Christian Olsen.One little piece of advice be wary of people with eye twitches! Watch the trailer and find out!

p.s I was only joking about people with eye twitches!

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.
