October 14 is just around the corner and I cannot freakin’ wait to see the prequel to John Carpenter’s “The Thing” when it finally hits theaters. I’m a fan of Carpenter’s, so I’m definitely looking forward to this film. Granted, we all know what’s going to happen to everyone, but I love the “who can you really trust?” paranoia vibe Carpenter established.
But we’re here to talk about the upcoming prequel. After six new images from the film hit the web yesterday, the first clip from the film has been released, and it makes sure to set in the scare factor.
Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., the film stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Eric Christian Olsen, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Edgerton, Ulrich Thomsen, Kim Bubbs, Stig Henrik Hoff, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Kristofer Hivju, Jan Gunnar Røise, and Jo Adrian Haavind.
You can see the first clip for the film below via MTV. Also, hit up the MTV link to read a new interview they posted with Winstead herself.
