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. watch the clips >>
