IGN got the exclusive debut duty for the new Red Band (i.e. violent, bloody) trailer for Universal’s upcoming sci-fi/horror thriller THE THING, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton. You’ll get plenty of new and disturbing glimpses at this shapeshifting creature and some particularly nasty things it does to its victims trapped with it in an Antarctic science outpost. If you’re squeamish or upset by sci-fi violence, don’t jump the link to FilmEdge.net to watch this trailer — fair warning!
Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. direct THE THING, a prequel to John Carpenter‘s 1982 classic of the same name, which will assimilate theaters October 14th.
FilmEdge welcomes fans of THE THING to check out our preview of Halloween Horror Nights 2011 at Universal Studios Hollywood, which debuts a new haunted attraction maze based on THE THING prequel film.
