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!

Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr., is directing from a screenplay by Eric Heisserer and Ronald D. Moore. The cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Walker, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Dennis Storhøi, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Eric Christian Olsen, Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise, Kristofer Hivju, and Jo Adrian Haavind.

Look for The Thing in theatres on October 14, 2011.

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.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    What worries me about this prequel/remake is if the producers got all excited pre-production about being able to do the transformations and all that in CGI/practical much better than in Carpenter’s version… and then they make the film all about that! However, what made Carpenter’s version work so well was not the effects as such, but the claustrophobia, the paranoia, the utter breakdown of trust between the characters… In many respects, the thing in Carpenter’s film was a sideline character – the driving force of the fear, but not the main focus of it. In this trailer it seems the thing has become akin to a serial killer… like a sci-fi Jason, Freddy or Ghost face – but that’s not what the thing should be. I hope I am proved wrong and that this is just as good character study along the lines of Carpenters version – but I fear it might not be!
