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.

Fernando Caire is a cosplayer, an artist, an aspiring Video editor, a prop builder, a writer, and a cinephile, with a PHD in awesome. He loves cinema, both good and bad. You will catch him once a month with a group of like minded masochists who endure 8 hours of the worst movies in cinematic history...for fun. He loves video games (shows off his "team Ps3" shirt) and loves writing about them when he gets the chance (though the only ones he ever received for review have been bad). The San Diego Comic Con is what he considers to be his once a year vacation. You will find him in line for Hall H bright and early and if you are between him and any kind of free swag...God help you.
