Roundtable Interview: Mary Elizabeth Winstead Talks The Thing Prequel, Unleashing Her Inner Ripley and More!
In the upcoming Universal prequel The Thing (review here), Mary Elizabeth Winstead portrays paleontologist Kate Lloyd, who's recruited for a research expedition in the Arctic after a team of Norwegian scientists uncover an alien life form and its spaceship frozen deep within the icy terrain.
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").
Though there are a lot of different opinions floating about for every film under the sun, one thing most people can agree upon was the fact that Dream House (review here) was a piece of crap. Know who else agrees? Director Jim Sheridan, who tried to have his name stricken from the credits prior to the flick's release.
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!
Yes, it tanked at the box office like a lead balloon, but maybe, just maybe, Jon Favreau's Cowboys & Aliens will find its audience when it hits Blu-ray and DVD! Read on for the initial details.
