These photos are epic. I’ve uploaded some new scans of Mary featured in Make Up Artist magazine where the magazine talks about how they achieved all the make-up effects in “The Thing” film. If the text is too small, there’s just a text page that’s a little bigger for you to read. Check out all the scans in the gallery. After seeing this pics, I’m even more pumped for this film!

Secondly, while Mary isn’t featured in the clip, the first clip for the film is now available and if you don’t want to get spoiled, don’t watch, but if you totally want to get the feel for how creepy this film will be, watch the clip below:
Finally, MTV also posted a new interview with Mary talking about The Thing which you can read an excerpt about below. The full interview can be read when you click on the MTV link above:
MTV: What’s the bigger threat for you on set in Canada? Is it losing your voice from screaming all the time or losing your fingers from frostbite?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I think it was fainting from nearly hyperventilating. That was the biggest thing. Also, by the end of it, we were shooting in the summer and we were acting like it was freezing cold and we were all in parkas and layers and layers of gloves and hats, and it was humid and hot outside. There was a lot of heat exhaustion setting in. It was kind of crazy — we had to act cold. I didn’t have to do a lot of screaming in this, which was good. It was just a lot of that kind of heavy breathing, where you’re trying to keep your composure and trying not to fall apart. It’s that really small, fast breathing and take, after take, after take of that kind of thing, you start to get lightheaded and start to get a little woozy.
MTV: There are a lot of remakes and new takes on cult classics, and I think a lot of people feel, “I’m OK with it, if they get it right.” For you guys on set, was that sort of pressure on your minds? And do you think you did get it right?
Winstead: There was definitely a lot of pressure, because everyone involved is a fan of the John Carpenter version. None of us wanted to mess it up and none of us wanted to sully the legend of the John Carpenter film. We wanted to add to it in a positive way, a fun way, and make something that could go hand in hand with that film. And that’s what we did. I think we made a film that’s a really great standalone film, but also something that’s really cool if you’re a fan of the John Carpenter version, just to get a little insight into what may have occurred before. I think it’s just a good movie regardless of how you feel about remakes and prequels and all of that. At least you can go see a good film and hopefully put that aside and just be there and go along for the ride.

Glad to hear they’ll be including original score by Marco Beltrami from the 1982 film. If you’ve seen Carpenter’s version, you know how amazing that score is.
