Universal Pictures has released a paranoia-filled and nausea-inducing red band trailer for The Thing, which is a prequel to the classic horror film of the same name. The film, which comes from Dutch director Matthjis van Heijningin, stars Warrior front-man Joel Edgerton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim).
At an Antarctica research site, the discovery of an alien craft leads to a confrontation between graduate student Kate Lloyd and scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson. While Dr. Halvorson keeps to his research, Kate partners with Sam Carter, a helicopter pilot, to pursue the alien life form.
The Thing will be released October 14, 2011.
