The Thing Prequel - First Trailer!
You can watch the trailer here. It looks like the movie is at least trying to achieve the atmosphere of John Carpenter's masterpiece, which is a plus. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has done well in the film industry and I don't usually have any complaints about her acting. Hopefully the prequel will end according to the beginning of John Carpenter's The Thing (1982). It would be kind of lame if they made a prequel but ignored the original film altogether. It wouldn't really be a prequel then, now, would it? Again, I remain hopeful. The thing is one of my favorite movie monsters, so I am kind of excited to see it on the big screen again.
