Here's Mary Elizabeth Winstead out at the premiere of her remake/prequel of the John Carpenter horror classic THE THING, looking lovely in her flowing red gown. I do love Mary with a passion, but I'm not at all sold on a how this new verison is going to turn out. Having watched the original again just last night, I can't imagine anything they could do with this that is going to compare. Carpenter said everything that needed to be said with the original and did it all perfectly without any CGI overstuffing, which you know this new one is going to be packed with. Those big, disgusting puppets from the original are the chief reason for why that movie is the classic that it is. That movie literally cornered the market with slimy, bloody creatures doing nasty shit. Anything this new movie does in that vein will most likely be an imitation. Though, I will acknowledge that Mary and her gorgeous self have got to be an improvement over Kurt Russel's bushy beard.
