Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje may have made his name with his television roles as Mr. Eko from "Lost" or the downright chilling Simon Adebisi from HBO's "Oz" but it's beginning to look more and more likely that his stellar work on television has made for a smooth transition to the big screen with the multi-faceted actor's performances in flicks like Faster, G.I. Joe, Killer Elite and the upcoming Universal Studio's project The Thing (review here).
The waiting is over. Our verdict on the premake of The Thing is finally here, and we've got the skinny on what to expect, what to roll your eyes at, and if you should head to theatres this weekend or not!
In the upcoming prequel The Thing the always hilarious Eric Christian Olsen (Not Another Teen Movie, The Hot Chick, Beerfest) shows off a more serious side with his portrayal of Adam Goldman, the research assistant who helps recruit paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) for an expedition to the Arctic after a Norwegian research team uncovers an alien entity discovered frozen deep below the icy surface.
After featuring video interviews from the cast of The Thing over the past couple of days, it's now time to hear from the director and producers who have the daunting task of living up to John Carpenter's masterpiece.
By coincidence The Thing just happens to star several talents with triple names including the two cast members for our video interview series today, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World ) and Eric Christian Olsen (TV's "NCIS: Los Angeles"). They always come in threes, ya know! *cues spooky music*
With The Thing replicating in theaters later this week, it's time to showcase some video interviews from the cast and creators of the movie. Today we bring you stars Joel Edgerton (Warrior) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko from TV's "Lost").
It's Thursday. Everyone (at least in their heads anyway) has begun the sweet process of checking out for the weekend. No one's looking! It's time to blast extraterrestrial shape-shifting scum! Go ahead ... you know you want to!
Monday is here, and as per usual it sucks. Good thing we have some more clips from the premake™ of The Thing to tide us over. We even threw in the previous ones just so you have the whole package. We're good like that!

Ready for a bit more monster action from the fast approaching prequel to the John Carpenter classic The Thing? Then get set to tune in to the official Russian red-band trailer!
While Russia has long been known for dealing with harsh conditions such as excessive cold, snow, and ice, I don't think they're quite ready to deal with an shape-shifting extraterrestrial menace. Still, that's what's coming in this latest one-sheet.
Haven't had your fill of coolness relating to The Thing? Ever wonder what it would be like to be one of them "Crazy Swedes" who were first infected? Wonder no more, kids! It's time to get all alienified™ by way of webcam!
Actor Joel Edgerton is having one hell of a great year in 2011. Not only did he garner numerous rave reviews for his performance in the indie sports drama Warrior (alongside Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy and veteran actor Nick Nolte), but now he's set to make his horror genre debut with his performance in Universal Studios' upcoming prequel The Thing, which is set to hit theaters on October 14th.
Okay, kids! Here's a moment we've been waiting for. The red band trailer for the prequel to the John Carpenter classic The Thing. What horrors lay ahead? Does it deliver? Watch and let us know in the comments section below.
