The Thing is a 2011 science fiction horror film directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr., written by Eric Heisserer. It is a prequel to the 1982 John Carpenter film of the same name. Matthijs's film takes place right before the first film, and focuses on the original Norwegian crew that discovered the alien. Paleontologist Kate Lloyd (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) joins a Norwegian scientific team that has stumbled across a crashed extraterrestrial spaceship buried in the ice of Antarctica. They discover a creature that seems to have died in the crash eons ago.
