Looks like they replaced Kurt Russell with a chick. I liked the John Carpenter version so I'll check this out.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say John Carpenter's version is infinitely better.

This is my fan-made trailer for the upcoming movie Re-make/Prequel of "The Thing" (1982) is set to be released April 29th, 2011.

Seriously. Do I have to do everything myself?

I haven't even seen the first one and I figured this would be the consensus.

Yeah, that. Carpenter's a legend, of course a remake would run into a huge amount of hostility.

Probably why they decided to do it. Bad buzz is still buzz.

The funniest thing is Carpenter's movie is a remake itself.

That's not funny at all! I know the chick from Scott Pilgrim is in this. I also know Carpenter did a chicks-in-a-mental-hosptial horror movie earlier this year called The Ward starring Amber Heard, Lyndsey Fonesca, and Danielle Panabaker, which I'm sure I'll find use for if it hits Netflix Instant View.

As often as they want to remake this, if they do it halfway decently, I'll watch it. One of the creepiest movies I've ever seen (thank you, Stan Winston & Rob Botlin.) Just thinking about it now, the scene with the dogs....jeez. [shudder] Definitely worth a remake every 30 years.

Here the official trailer

[video=youtube;8g2kASeEXUo]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8g2kASeEXUo&feature=player_embedded[/video]

So, is this a prequel, remake, reboot, or some kind of combination. It doesn't look like a direct Prequel to Carpenter's movie. It looks like more of a re-imagining of the Norwegian camp, but not necessarily in the same "Universe" as the Carpenter version. For one, it seems that there are several Americans present. The helicopter seen in the trailer was not the same one that was chasing the Dog in the Carpenter version. The trailer posted earlier in the thread shows some kind of modern "situation room" display that does not look like 1982 (the year was referenced in Carpenter's film)

The funniest thing is Carpenter's movie is a remake itself.
The premise is a remake, where an alien creature is found in the ice in Antarctica but the story beyond that was based on a short story called "Who Goes There" by John Campbell

Since The Thing is my favorite sci-fi/horror movie ever I'll hesitantly go see this, hopes are low though.

as a matter of fact i dont have 5$

floyd beat me to it, ive seen all the incarnations of "who goes there" and read the story. its more along the lines of "i am legend" type of story, it doens't matter when the story is "set" in time its the kind of a story that can be told at any time and still scare the living shit out of you . when i was a kid i wouldn't sleep in the same room with my dog for a week because of carpenters version

I think the dead giveaway other than the total lack of quality is that they showed a video game clip and the release date was several months ago.

I think it is a prequal to Carpenter's however why do they have similar scenes in it? Kind of annoyed.

Can I just say how completely and utterly pointless this looks?

That's what I was thinking. What is the point of calling it a "prequel"? Are they going to end the movie with a helicopter chasing a dog in the snow? Looks like the exact same story to me, only this time with generic everything.
