I'm really looking forward to this, like a bunch of us here, JC's The Thing is one of my favorite movies, and even though I'm sure this won't compare to it, the fact it's a prequel and not a remake gives me some hope it might contain a measure of the greatness found in Carpenter's film. The 80's look of the trailer, the clothes, hair styles, beards etc makes it look promising.

Agreed. I read a commentary from the director or producer not long ago stating that they didn't want to do a remake. That would be like drawing a mustache on the Mona Lisa. This will examine what happened to the Norwegian Team who first discovered the crash site in the ice.

Trailer looks pretty good. I didn't even know this was in production, so I'm glad to hear about it.

I might check this out. The original is considered a sci-fi classic right? Do you guys like it? I was just reading an article where the writer translated what the Norwegian says in the beginning of the movie, pretty much warning the characters of the impending doom, so I guess it's not subtitled because it would've given too much away.

John Carpenter's "The Thing" is in my all time best films category.

Well, I agree........ But my opinion isn't a "qualified" one.

I still haven't seen the Carpenter version of this either, but I am betting the farm that this is gonna suck in comparison.

Hell, even the trailers for the Carpenter one look more interesting to me. More action combined with a few scares and horror.
These new ones look much more "shock-tactic" and horror oriented compared to the Carpenter ones.

Sooner or later I will get around to watching the Carpenter version, but I can't say this one will be watched soon.

Finally checked out the preview and it does look really good. I'm just worried they'll take liberties with the mythos of the original Carpenter movie. I liked the usage of Carpenter's 'heartbeat' atmospheric music when showing the logo and name.

Just remember, Universal...

WHAT?!?!?

Given what I know about your tastes in TV and Movies, you need to rent this FIRST before you do anything else.

Your spoiler is exactly correct. If it doesn't end this way, it won't exist to most "Thing" fans.

BTW, the trailer looks like a carbon copy of Carpenter's film. If you are going to remake it, just say it's a remake!

Maybe I didn't write that one clearly. ^^
By "this one won't be watched soon", I meant this new version.

Oh, and yes its embarassing I haven't seen the Carpenter version. I am "classic movie deprived" as I once put it to DrM on the phone. :D
He has more than done his share, and even sent me a few items and movies, but I still need to get to seeing a few we have here on the board.

Currently I'm dealing with injuries to both shoulders from lifting and training. I suppose now is as good a time as any. ;)

I'll agree with you there too, it's a crime that any sci-fi fan can say they've not seen it lol.

There's a new version of the trailer out. It seems exactly the same as the original one at first glance but it has a couple of brief new images, one of which connects it to something form the original film.

Spoiler

Here I have a screen grab of it Image it's Splitface the partially dead assimilated man that Macready and the doctor find at the Norwegian camp in the first film, I like how we'll see how that actually happens.

Big fan from OZ, little bit of fan from Lost, none from the Mummy Returns. He didn't help that film at all...well maybe a bit. :)
I still briefly remember him from Congo, lol.

So its a prequel...with the same title as the original? What is going on here. Did they just drop the "John Carpenter's .." or something?

Nope - it's about the Norwegian and previous team who 1st found the crash site before the Americans. The 1st post or 2 discusses more about your questions.

It looks good to me too, the one drawback however is, we see quite a few people, being killed off/assimilated in the trailers, so when watching the actual film, it might not be very suspenseful.

Well that trailer certainly makes me more optimistic. There is a lot of CGI there, but I'm not going to trash it before I get to see it. There looks to be a few practical effect thrown in, too.

I just don't know about the age of the girl. She looks way too young to be in that environment.

Well Whit you'll be seeing it before me and MrRSerling, it's out in less than a month in America, but it comes out the 2nd of December in the UK, bastards whoever chose delay the British release! It'll be good to hear your verdict beforehand though.

Here's the Russian red band trailer, even though it's dubbed, it has a few new scenes, the one at the end is a great nod to something we see in the Carpenter film.


Link

Another cool thing I like is the fact, in the original trailer, the Norwegian characters can be heard singing this song, which was the Norwegian entry for the 1980 Eurovision song contest, adds a nice bit of verisimiltude with the 1982 setting, plus it's a catchy song.

Cracked.com had an article that said if they translated the Norwegian spoken by the dying guy at the beginning of the movie, it pretty much gives away the danger and what is to come for the rest of the movie for the crew. The ads I saw on TV actually look decent.

One of the interesting aspects of the '80s film was that you could almost follow the learning curve of the alien as the film progressed. Its ability to deceive physically was an inate trait, but the longer its exposure to humans the more it learned to deceive psychologically. By that logic, the Norweigians were dealing with a less experienced menace. If the the "thing" in the new film is trickier than the "thing" in the Carpenter film, then it loses all creadibility as a sequel. If there are no new tricks, then what's the point?

Welcome Belated Nerd :D

Being that this is a prequel to the Carpenter version, I don't expect anything new, actually a more naive monster would be suspected here if done right.

Exactly right, Dr M. A very good point made by our newcomer also. You do feel the learning of the alien as time moves on.

Cool thanks for the info. I keep seeing TV ads for this and I gotta say, it looks really good. I like the idea of a prequel to the Carpenter version. The original came out in the '30s right?

You're welcome, Anthony. The Thing from Another World came out in 1951. The short story it is based on, "Who Goes There?" by "Don A. Stuart aka John W. Campbell, Jr. in 1938.

So original film was 1951, Carpenter remake 1981 and prequel 2011? So that means 30 years in between the original and remake and another 30 years later the prequel to the remake is released? And wasn't the actress in the new Thing here in the last Die Hard movie?

So original film was 1951, Carpenter remake 1981 and prequel 2011? So that means 30 years in between the original and remake and another 30 years later the prequel to the remake is released? And wasn't the actress in the new Thing here in the last Die Hard movie?


Actually - the Carpenter version is 1982 - but whose counting.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead - I believe she was in "Live Free or Die Hard" - good eye. I remember her from Final Destination 2 or 3 - don't remember which - and Bullet Proof.

It's very interesting to note how close to the original story the John Carpenter version really is.
