“The Thing” Trailer Tom July 14, 2011 Movie Trailers, Movies, Other Clips Check out the trailer for the prequel/remake of “The Thing”. John Carpenter’s “The Thing” is probably my favorite horror movie of all time, and actually one of my favorite movies in general, so when I heard they were making this movie I was a little skeptical. Judging from the trailer it seems like a very similar movie with a few prequel type aspects to it. I honestly can’t figure out if it’s a remake or a prequel, but it seems like more of a “reboot” of sorts. It looks like it brings some of the best aspects of the original along with more of a background story. So check it out and let us know what you think.
