Re: The Thing Prequel trailer

I'm up for it as long as they don't tweak the story and do the whole prequel thing the right way.

Re: The Thing Prequel trailer

I caught a one-minute clip of it earlier today and -- based solely on that single clip -- it looks like the flick's going to be ripe with CGI and cheap jump scares.

I'm still undecided, but that doesn't bode well. hmm

Re: The Thing Prequel trailer

For those interested, here's about ten minutes of B-roll footage including a full-burn stunt:

The bottom two vids are just repeats of the first two.

^ does look much like a direct remake...but ya gotta consider a prequel would most likely have the same setting and the same creature, like JC's version. I think if they get the creature effects right and they are well done then this could be a good one!

The only difference will be them actually discovering the Thing.  I just hope that the CGI isn't bad.  One of the best things about JC's Thing was the practical FX.



I am looking forward to seeing this movie,  but I don't think the FX will be as good as the original.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead = me seeing it

The new TV trailer is horrible. It basically shows the whole damn movie. Nobody can cut trailers anymore. You build mystery, not condense the frigging thing (no pun intended) into 30 seconds.

Oh man, you hit it right on the head!  Can you imagine what the Carpenter's 'The Thing' trailer would look like if it was released today?

Just compare:
Carpenter's-

Re: The Thing Prequel trailer

So i finally checked out the film last night and actually found it to be good not great. It had it's moments of what the F is that thing doing to that guy's face? I love Mary Elizabeth Winstead!

Re: The Thing Prequel trailer

Boring and predictable... To give it credit it wasn't awful but stick with the 1982 version, better acting and more mystery.
