Re: The Thing remake pics.

Isn't this suppose to be a prequel?

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Yeah, I keep hearing that it's going to be a prequel. Looks more like a remake though.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Well even if it's a prequel it would be set in the same place under simalar circumstances so I could why they would look similar...hopfully it will leave of right where Carpenders The Thing begins.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

My bad I believe it's supposed to be a prequel.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Shall we just call it a premake? wink

Re: The Thing remake pics.

have a bad feeling about this one

Re: The Thing remake pics.

same enviroment .  same creature.  so basically it kills different people ? and there will be more effects ?     I hope  they at least come up with a good story..


I love Kurt Russell in the original.. something about John Carpenter movies that have either ( or both )Kurt Russell and Donald Pleasance just have a special place in the black pit I call a heart... smile

Re: The Thing remake pics.

I really hope that this turns out to be a great movie.

It has some women in the group though (JC's version had none), so I hope that they are not used to distract the other guys, or are just there for nudity.  I hope that their characters are strong and full of purpose.

Also, if any of the characters looks like the guy from the Helicopter in the beginning of JC's movie...then you know that he'll make it.  smile

Re: The Thing remake pics.

I'm excited for this movie i really hope they dont screw it up cause The Thing is a amazing movie

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Those cats don't look Norwegian.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

His beard is not big enough

Re: The Thing remake pics.

I hadn't heard about this! So this is about the team that found the ship in the last one?

Re: The Thing remake pics.

As much as i love the atmosphere and build up in the first one, im hoping this one has more monsters. I just love the fx in it so much, and with the enhancement of cgi the fx could be even more realistic looking. Overall very high hopes for this one.
Welcome to the site Prim! tongue

Welcome.
It takes place before J.C.'s movie.
It's supposed to show what happened to the Norwegian group that found the ship.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Looks just like the Kurt Russell version. So why bother??

By the way, it's a remake of a remake. wink

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Nnnnnn...not quite, Blood.  The first The Thing was based off the novel Who Goes There? but strayed quite a bit.  Carpenter's The Thing was a more faithful adaptation of the novel, not a remake of the original.

So this remake is a remake of a revamp.:lol:

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Had to scroll down a ways to find this thread... but yea, I'm lovin' the trailer on this, cannot wait! Had to re-watch Carpenters version earlier today, but I watch that a few times a year anyhow. Would love to see the original still, and read the book.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

The trailer for the prequel looks great, and for those who watch alot of foreign stuff, many of the actors will look familiar as they have been in  a lot of Norwegian genre stuff.  I am definitely looking forward to this one.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

Caught this trailer last week and, really, it looks a lot like Carpenter's The Thing, except with a female and CGI.

I'm undecided if I want to bother or not.

Re: The Thing remake pics.

^You forgot to mention the Swedish dudes Lon, that definitely seperates it from JC's film.  I really hope that they go into more detail about how they found and extracted the alien form the ice, something they didn't do in either the original or JC's film.
