Could swear the first trailer was posted sometime in the last year, but search is finding nothing.

It's supposed to be a prequel to the Carpenter version, although it sure looks a lot like a remake.

Umm...No.

Looks ok, but why didnt they do something fresh with the idea instead of just copying the originals "stuck in an icy wasteland" idea? The trailer even used part of the original music.

Whats with the girl? It appears they broke the original Kurt Russel part into two characters?

So, a remake of the remake.


Nice.


The Kurt Russell remake might be the only movie remake that was as good or better then the original.

the original The Thing (from Another World) is one of my favorite movies. Liked the Kurt Russell version too...the multiheaded husky was just freaky.

There will never be a better scene in any movie than this one.

I especially like it at the end when one of the characters says "You've got to be ****ing kidding!".

I guess if it focuses on the Norwegian camp, it could technically be considered a prequel.

Although it appears all the Norwegians speak English now. :D

That's awesome. Going back and remaking old movies. I sure hope this trend catches on...

I agree with you. However, this is not exactly a new trend.

If this is true, thats makes it alot more interesting for me. Although in the Carpenter version, wasnt it encased in ice for thousands of years before they found it?

In winter 1982, an American Antarctic research station is alerted by gunfire and explosions. An Alaskan Malamute flees across the snow, pursued by a Norwegian helicopter with an on-board sniper frantically trying to kill it. The dog makes its way into the camp as the science station's crew looks on in confusion. Through reckless use of a thermite charge, the helicopter is destroyed and its pilot killed shortly after landing. The surviving passenger, the sniper, fires at the dog with a rifle, grazing George Bennings (Peter Maloney), one of the researchers. The sniper is shot and killed by Garry (Donald Moffat), the station commander. Not knowing what to make of the incident, the station crew adopts the dog.

Unable to contact the outside world via radio, helicopter pilot R.J. MacReady (Kurt Russell) and Dr. Copper (Richard Dysart) risk a flight to the Norwegian camp to find an explanation. They find it destroyed, its personnel missing or dead (some of them having committed suicide). Finding evidence that the Norwegians had dug something out of the ice, the pair return to the station with the partially-burned remains of a hideous creature which bears some human features. An autopsy of the cadaver by Dr. Blair (Wilford Brimley) is inconclusive, save to find that the creature had what appeared to be a normal set of human internal organs.
