Universal Pictures and MTV Movies have debuted a first clip from The Thing, the rapidly-approaching prelude to John Carpenter's classic 1982 remake. The video seems to center on the block of ice that Mac and Copper saw at the Norwegian camp. Check it out below and sound off with your thoughts. The film will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Jonathan Lloyd Walker and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Director Matthijs van Heijningen led at the helm, based on a screenplay by Ronald D. Moore and Eric Heisserer.

Plot Concept: Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller "The Thing," paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they're infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet.

Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has traveled to the desolate region for the expedition of her lifetime. Joining a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across an extraterrestrial ship buried in the ice, she discovers an organism that seems to have died in the crash eons ago. But it is about to wake up.

When a simple experiment frees the alien from its frozen prison, Kate must join the crew's pilot, Carter (Joel Edgerton), to keep it from killing them off one at a time. And in this vast, intense land, a parasite that can mimic anything it touches will pit human against human as it tries to survive and flourish.

The Thing invades theaters October 14, 2011.

I almost wish I hadn't seen that just to enjoy the shock at the theater.

Looking forward to this

I'm glad I read your comment Wise, it's blocked at work so I woud have had to wait.  Now I'll avoid it.

At least they have the shock factor. That's what really scares me, not blood and gore.

lusiphur 9/8/2011 6:46:25 AM

 Thanks Wise.  Mine's blocked too, so I'll try to avoid any clips for this before I see it.

Should have read you comment, Wise. I already watched it. It was a good scare. Hopefully, they'll have more of that in the rest of the film.

That's ok Wise we still have over a month. You just need to think happy thoughts and it will be out of your memory forever. Unitl then, don't open headlines that say "Thing Clips."

It startled me too. Can't wait.

Just watched the 82 version for the 200th time last week and I am pumped to see this.

 Hope they use the traditional Carpenter synthesized music in the movie too

Watched the clip anyway... don't they know not to eff with Adebisi? He might put on some headphones under that skully and prison rape you.


Oz reference, for those that don't know.

jedi4sshield 9/8/2011 10:12:16 AM

Wow had the chills. I wish I hadnt seen that, damn, oh well. I thought there would be a huge crack in the Ice when he left as apposed to what happened but oh well. I'm still going to see this!

acidsquall73 9/8/2011 10:31:22 AM

I'm stoked that it looks like we'll get to see it in it's native form, or at least what we maybe see as it's native form. Unless it crashed here from another planet from which it took one of that planet's inhabitant's form. And I wonder what the likelihood is Mary Elizabeth Winstead will show some skin. She's hot.
