THE THING is the prelude to John Carpenter’s 1982 classic,
and this one-sheet pays homage to that film’s artwork.
Universal released the poster for the film, which is
directed by Matthijs van Heijningen from a script by Eric Heisserer and Ronald
D. Moore. Here’s the synopsis:
“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.”
