Forty-Six Seconds From the New The Thing

Posted by Erik Henriksen on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 at 1:14 PM

I love the hell out of John Carpenter's The Thing, which means I can't help but be curious about its prequel/reboot, which is also, rather creatively, titled The Thing. The Thing (Again!) was supposed to come out last April, but got delayed to October, and now MTV has 46 seconds from it. While it's always impossible to judge whole films based on isolated little clips, this particular snippet doesn't inspire a whole lot of confidence. Then again, it does star Joel Edgerton and Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Ronald D. Moore did chime in on the screenplay, so hell, maybe this is just a goofy clip and the film itself will end up being as cool as I want it to be. Also, let it be known that I will award it bonus points if the Thing ever changes form into awesome old-school Kurt Russell.
