The Thing red-band trailer is here, and it's got creature action!

09.19.2011by: Eric Walkuski

The latest trailer for Universal's THE THING has just crash-landed online, and you should be pleased to know that there's some yucky alien action within! That's right folks, you'll get plenty of peeks at extraterrestrial mutation in this one-minute-long tease. I'm glad to see they aren't shying away from the bizarre.

The synopsis: Antarctica: an extraordinary continent of awesome beauty. It is also home to an isolated outpost where a discovery full of scientific possibility becomes a mission of survival when an alien is unearthed by a crew of international scientists. The shape-shifting creature, accidentally unleashed at this marooned colony, has the ability to turn itself into a perfect replica of any living being. It can look just like you or me, but inside, it remains inhuman. In the thriller The Thing, paranoia spreads like an epidemic among a group of researchers as they’re infected, one by one, by a mystery from another planet.

The prequel, starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Ulrich Thomsen, Eric Christian Olsen, opens on OCTOBER 14th. Eat it up!

I'll give it some time. It's certainly not going the mysterious route of the original, which is unfortunate.

I say to hell with the naysayers. CGI can definitley go where prosthetics cant. Hate all you want but avatar was a visually stunning movie. Carpenter remade this movie so lets see where this one takes us. This trailer looks incredible. Sometimes makeup just cant give you what you want.

Wow looks like the video game! Those creatures are totally taken right out of the game, same as the transformations.

CGI

Why does most of todays CGI look so damn fake??? Is it THAT HARD to simply use prosthetics, make-up and models as we did years ago??? I bet it's even cheaper than what CGI costs, and at least it would look legit...

I loved the 82 version and I was curious, even though there's no need for a prequel.

I agree! Good CGI seems exspensive so, why prosthetics are being used less seems to be just a case of studios getting giddy with a new toy!

I gave John Carpenter my money 3 times when his Thing remake opened in 1982 and while I have no expectations that this is going to come even close to the 82 or even the 51 version, I love monster movies and have no guilt satisfying my curiousity and checking it out. Despite Carpenter's version being one of my all time favorite films, the existence of this does not offend me nor will it tarnish Carpenter's work. If it stinks, I will forget it. If it's entertaining, I will treat it as an amusing
