The film, helmed by Dutch director Matthijis van Heijningen Jr, has been shooting up in Toronto for the last few months, leaving pure suspicion on how the film will be wrapped up so quickly come April of next year. Still, this bold move will please fans of Carpenter's undoubtedly gruesome remake (which was brilliant!).
At an Antarctic research site, Kate Lloyd (Final Destination 3's Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and scientist Dr. Sander Halvorson (Ulrich Thomson) fued over a suspicious craft which has crash landed in the desolate landscape. Going against his wishes, Kate teams with helicopter pilot Sam Carter (Joel Edgerton) to pursue the life form which resides in the craft.
I, like many fans, will be praying that this decision regarding a hasty release date hasn't screwed up the film's capabilities of surpassing it's predecessor.
