7 September 2011 8:14 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

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.

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.

The Thing: Prequel's Creature Design & Video Breakdown of the 1982 Version

22 August 2011 2:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Uploaded by the unofficial The Thing Facebook page Was Childs an alien? The second part of the Video really answers this question, but the first part is great as well. It's funny I've watched this film probably twenty times and I always ask that question once the end happens. Finally we have real solid reasons to backup the speculation that Keith David's character was in fact infected. See if you agree with the assessment. The prequel is directed by Matthijs van Heijningen jr. The cast includes Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Joel Edgerton, Dennis Storhøi, Trond Espen Seim, Jørgen Langhelle, Jonathan Walker, Eric Christian Olsen, Jo Adrian Haavind, Stig Henrik Hoff, Jan Gunnar Røise and Kristofer Hivju.
