An expedition of a lifetime becomes a subterranean nightmare in The Thing, the thrilling prelude to John Carpenter's 1982 film of the same name. Debuting on Blu-ray and DVD from Universal Pictures UK on 26th March 2012, The Thing stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World) as paleontologist Kate Lloyd who, along with the crew's pilot Carter (Joel Edgerton, Warrior), discovers a mysterious organism buried in the ice.

When a simple experiment frees the creature from its frozen prison, it unleashes a flood of chaos and paranoia upon the camp, pitting the team against one another. With the ability to mimic the physicality of anything or anyone that it touches, the shape-shifting creature makes everyone a suspect in this suspenseful psychological thriller.

From Dawn of the Dead producers Marc Abraham and Eric Newman, The Thing also stars Ulrich Thomsen (Season of the Witch), Eric Christian Olsen (NCIS: Los Angeles), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost), Paul Braunstein (Tuxedo) and Kim Bubbs (Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures).
