Way back in October of 2010 Bloody Disgusting’s Chris Eggertsen took to the Toronto set of Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.’s The Thing prequel, which now arrives in theaters Friday. In case you missed this on set reports, I’d like to direct you to both Part 1 and Part 2, which carry interviews with the cast, producers and director.
In the R-rated prequel, “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.”
Check back this weekend for a review.
