First Official Trailer For The Thing (Which Is A Prequel To The Thing)

Here’s the first trailer for The Thing, a film that finally gives big screen immortality to the Norwegian camp, the poor folks who found “it” first.

Compare these shots to similar ones in John Carpenter’s Thing and you’ll see immediately which film has the most rigorous and compelling compositional style. We’ll have to wait to see if this prequel can make up that lost ground in other ways.
