Okay. I’m kind of being won over by this trailer for the upcoming prequel of John Carpenter’s masterpiece, The Thing, which was itself a remake of Christian Nyby and Howard Hawk’s the Thing From Another World. Though I do hope they keep the same spirit of Carpenter’s remake with their new film…the loss of trust, the mounting dread, and in some ways…hopelessness in the face of something “greater” than the human race. I’m worried though that this film might have taken a page from 30 Days of Night (Which I quite enjoyed but I don’t think it fits a Thing story) in regards to the pacing of the movie.
I’m probably in the minority on this but I really dig this poster for the movie as well. A huge thanks to Film School Rejects for the image below!
