Re: The Thing prequel - date

Universal Pictures is targeting The Thing for a release on April 29, 2011 which is two weeks after Scream 4 and one week after Red Riding Hood hit theaters. One week later, the 2011 summer season kicks-off with Thor.

The studio describes the thriller as follows:

Re: The Thing prequel?

On the one hand it sort of spoils the suspense when you know only two (rather clumsy) Norwegian guys are going to make to the end but on the other hand, it'll be interesting to see how that one guy gets pinned to the door by a shovel...

Well, we assume that everyone dies at the end, but I suppose some people could escape from the Norwegian base. Not that I expect that to happen.

It is always possible some people do escape. The American base we saw wouldn't know there were other survivors who got away which opens up a sequel to The Thing that you know they'll do if this is a success. Afterall, the only survivors we knew of were speaking Norwegian and may not have known there were others or had a chance to alert others.

Re: The Thing prequel?

I would much rather have a sequel than prequel. Though I guess I should be glad that it is not a remake. Could you imagine the awesome creature effects from the original film being replaced with CGI?

Mary Elizabeth Winstead is the only good news I've heard about this thing so far, but can her hotness overcome the fact that prequels suck?

It is a remake disguised as a prequel. And we don't have to imagine these creature effects done in CGI, that's what we'll get whether we like it or not.

Re: The Thing prequel?

Much rather see a sequal where global warming uncovers the ship once more and McCready makes his way back to the antarctic to confront the second pilot

Aww come on did we really need this? A prequel to The Thing? Really? Can they really not spend their money on something original? Or give it to Haiti instead of wasting time with this?

Re: The Thing prequel?

Man, had almost forgot about this movie.

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=79822

New trailer looks pretty decent... although I was kinda hoping they would do more than just tell the same basic story again. I'm not really getting much of an 80s vibe from it either.
