“The Thing” Premiere Date

Some of you have been wondering, and now we have the info. According to Variety, “The Thing” premiere date will be held on October 10 at Universal Studios in CA where Mary attended the HHN preview night and visited The Thing: Assimilation haunted house.

In that regard, “The Thing” maze — which replicates the film’s Norwegian camp, where a group of researchers find themselves infected by an alien creature that can transform itself into an exact replica of any living being — will also be used for an upcoming press junket for the pic and for the afterparty of the film’s Oct. 10 premiere.

How exciting!

New Pic of Mary at Halloween Horror Nights!

Earlier this week, Mary attended preview nights at Halloween Horror Nights in California to check out the new “The Thing: Assimilation” maze and I’ve uploaded a new photo of Mary at the event. She also did an interview with Extra TV which will likely air either tonight or next week. Either way, we’ll post the interview here for all of you to see. In the meantime, enjoy the new photo looking pretty as always by clicking the photo below or visiting the gallery.

“The Thing” Featured in SFX Magazine

UK’s SFX Magazine did a pretty cool feature for “The Thing” when they visited the set a couple of months ago and they have interviews with the producer, Mary, Joel Edgerton and most importantly, the special effects artists. Be sure to check out the hi-res scans in the gallery. The film opens in theaters on October 14 & December 2 in the UK. Huge thanks to my pal Darren for the amazing scans!

Mary At Halloween Horror Nights

On Tuesday night, Mary attended preview night for Halloween Horror Nights 21 in California where she got to check out The Thing:Assimilation maze. Although the interview hasn’t aired just yet, we can see a very quick peek of her being interviewed by Extra TV.

Mary Elizabeth is Set to Get SMASHED

Oh wow! This is such fantastic news! We’re finally going to see Mary in a dramedy & the plot sounds great! Perfect opportunity for audiences to see Mary show the talent we know she truly has. 🙂 Here’s part of the announcement via Variety:

Super Crispy Entertainment is lining up an impressive cast for its latest project “Smashed,” as “The Thing” heroine Mary Elizabeth Winstead and “Breaking Bad” star Aaron Paul are in negotiations to topline the indie dramedy, while Octavia Spencer, the breakout star of “The Help,” and “Parks and Recreation” thesp Nick Offerman are in negotiations to co-star.

Loosely described as a modern day take on Blake Edwards’ 1962 drama “Days of Wine and Roses,” pic stars Winstead and Paul as a married couple whose bond is built on a mutual love of alcohol. Their relationship is put to the test when the wife decides to get sober and attend AA meetings.

Spencer is in talks to play Winstead’s close friend and sponsor, while Offerman is in talks to play an assistant principal at the elementary school where the protag teaches.

Filming starts in November.

Congratulations, Mary! This is really exciting!
