I'm holding judgement until I see it but I'm hoping for the best cause The Thing is still my mother's favorite horror movie.

Here you go:

The official Red Band Trailer for The Thing

Yeah honey, you work that flamethrower.


What is it a chick flick?

The ONLY reason I will see this is because it ends exactly where 1982 film starts. So for the cool factor I want to see that. The helicopter chasing the dog running. Don't remember any woman in that scene, so here's wishing!

Get it?


Here's the long version that debuted 2 months ago. How the hell did I miss this?

And for fun & comparison the 1982 version:

Even though I've liked Mary Elizabeth Winstead since she was on Wolf Lake she's never going to fill Kurt Russell's shoes. The long version of the trailer actually makes the movie look better but I think that's only due to the lack of CGI shown. No CGI in hell is ever going to replace Rob Bottin's effects. I will rent this someday but I already know it will suck.

The short, more recent, trailer really shows a ton a CGI, whereas the longer, older, trailer doesn't really elude to that. Nonetheless, it will be watched!

Ha! We both said basically the exact same thing CopyBoy!

I'm going to keep my expectations low but I am definitely interested in this.

Well, all the current trailer cliches are there. Could get good biz. It's crazy how STILL this is being marketed as THE THING...without letting audiences know that it leads up to...THE THING.

Keeping an open mind, but can't say I'm terribly excited. Lots and lots of CGI I'm seeing in that trailer, and after they boasted practical effects so much. Looks just like the events of the first one too. This IS a prequel right? Looks like remake..

Actually there is a couple of practical shots as well in the trailer (especially close ups) and not only CGI. Look again

And whatīs the damn panic about CGI all the time?
Itīs not exactly SyFy channel quality
Would Stop-Motion look more real?

Because within a year or two, it will look cheap and outdated. The tentacle through the chest in that trailer already looks questionable. While most practical effects look good for decades.

True but everybody should have known that CGI was gonna be a big part of this film.
