The Australian International Movie Convention took place this week where Encore Magazine was able to snap a few photos – one of which is your first look at the teaser poster for Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment’s The Thing. Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Joel Edgerton star in the prequel to john Carpenter’s incredible 1980’s creature feature. The ice breaks on April 29, 2011. What can you guys see in the poster below? It’s kinda hard to see.
“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.”
