New ‘The Thing’ Trailer hits the web!

 

Apparently someone over at Universal didn’t do their homework. For one thing you don’t name your prequel the exact same thing as its predecessor, that would imply it is actually a remake. I’m not saying you should call it “The Thing Begins” but seriously this feels lazy. Second thing, I am a huge fan of John Carpenter’s The Thing and know for a fact that these guys are supposed to be Norwegian, that sure as hell doesn’t sound like Norwegian to me. Third, why is this being made again?

Anyways that ends my rant. The trailer is below so you can judge for yourself. THE THING is set for an October 11th, 2011 release. At least they used the original John Carpenter score…I guess.
