The first trailer for the horror remake/prequel The Thing is now online. The first thing I noticed: it looks a hell of a lot like the John Carpenter version. The second thing I noticed: it doesn’t look as good as the John Carpenter version. That’s not at all surprising.
For what it’s worth, the 2011 version of The Thing looks okay – but the John Carpenter version still stands up incredibly well, so what’s the point?
Oh, and the third thing I noticed: the lead character (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a lot prettier than the one in the John Carpenter version (played by Kurt Russell).
Tell me if you disagree:
