I watched the redband, and I saw the 'Thing' more times in that trailer than I did in the entire John Carpenter 82 version.
To me, that's a bad sign. One of the things that made Carpenters "The Thing" so memorable, was that it kept the suspense going. When you did see the 'thing' it was always a shocking and horrific experience.
This new one shows way too much. It looks like it'll rely on 'jump' scares as opposed to any real suspense.
I guess there will be the suspense of 'when is the next jump scare going to happen?'
I'm going to be there opening day, but the trailer really disappoints me. I hope the actual film won't.
