The Thing

Though I wasn't particularly impressed by the first trailer for The Thing, the prequel to John Carpenter's classic horror film of the same name, the red band trailer certainly got my attention a little better. The teaser poster for the film wasn't really anything special to behold but this new Russian poster for the film is pretty damn cool. Rather than focusing on the creature itself or any of the bloody deaths that will surely fall upon the doomed research team, it merely showcases quite a large overhead shot of a crevasse in the ice harboring the huge craft that the titular monster used to arrive on our planet. See the cool poster below!

Here's the Russian poster for The Thing from KinoGallery (via ComingSoon):

The Thing is directed by Dutch filmmaker Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. It's set at another Antarctica research site that's invaded by an "alien life form" (the same one from John Carpenter's 1978 film, as this is a direct prequel). The discovery of an alien craft brings in graduate student Kate Lloyd (Winstead) who partners with Sam Carter (Edgerton), a helicopter pilot, to hunt down this alien. "[They've made a film] that takes place in the same reality as Carpenter's: a place where the people on screen are real and the way they react to an alien entity is the same way you'd react if you were there in their situation." In theaters Oct. 14.
