News: New Red Band Trailer For THE THING Hits

Movie News

Here's the brand new trailer for Universal's upcoming prequel to John Carpenter's THE THING. It's 'Red Band' though, meaning it might contain a grisly bit or two, so consider yourself warned (though we're assuming that's exactly what made you come here in the first place!). Enjoy!

Is it just us or does the CGI look a little poor at times? Director Matthijs van Heijningen and co will have to go a long way to top Rob Bottin's faultless practical effects in the original.

THE THING opens practically everywhere but the UK on October 13th. Us Brits have to wait until December 2nd for some reason.
