Trailer Defrosted for Uni’s ‘The Thing’ Prequel!

Man is the warmest place to hide…

Inside you’ll find the first trailer for Universal Pictures’ The Thing (set visit part 1, part 2) prequel starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Dennis Storhøi.

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., 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.

The prequel to John Carpenter’s remake hits theaters October 14, 2011.
