Let's all do snow angels!
Exactly (and curiously) entitled like its predecessor, THE THING is a prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 alien horror film--itself, a copy from 1951. Completely abandoning originality, the newest one also seems to have the exact narrative as its previous iterations.
To increase the level of attractiveness, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (BLACK CHRISTMAS) substitutes for Kurt Russell, while Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Eric Christian Olsen also join the body-snatching, Antarctic-dwelling alien action.
If you'd allow me to be serious for a moment, the trailer does look halfway decent. Although, by taking place only three days before the Russell version, it's a safe bet that everyone dies, save for an infested malamute.
