Two New Preview Clips and International Trailer for The Thing
10.03.11 by Ryan
With less than two weeks before the release of Universal's upcoming The Thing, the marketing for the prequel is clicking into higher gear with the release of both a red band trailer and a preview clip towards the end of last month. Now, another two preview clips and an international trailer have been released, offering more looks into the prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 horror classic, also titled The Thing.
Set in the Norwegian camp that was investigated by Kurt Russell in the early goings of Carpenter's flick, The Thing (prequel) explains how the devastation they found occurred. Last week's preview clip showed that trust was as much an issue in the prequel as it was in the previous movie, with Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), who plays American paleontologist Kate Lloyd, trying to figure out who she and her international crew can trust. One of the latest clips takes place before that, showing Winstead bringing evidence that the creature they have discovered can replicate human beings.
The second clip shows Winstead locking up Joel Edgerton and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje into a storage room, since she has no way to determine who is human and who isn't.
More can be seen in the international trailer for The Thing, particularly of the creature, which we can now officially say is mobile.
Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. and written by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) and Eric Heisserer (A Nightmare on Elm Street), The Thing co-stars Eric Christian Olsen, Jonathan Walker, Dennis Storhøi, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju, and Jo Adrian Haavind.
