In 1982, John Carpenter made a more faithful version of the novella Who Goes There? under the title The Thing. It was already well-known that Carpenter was a fan of the original film, as he included considerable footage from it in his own Halloween.
Certain elements of Carpenter's film were heavily suggested by this film, including the "burning letters" opening titles.
Universal Pictures made a prequel to Carpenter's 1982 version with the identical title of The Thing. The film is to be released October 2011 and will star Mary Elizabeth Winstead as protagonist Kate Lloyd, a character based on Margaret Sheridan's character Nikki Nicholson.

its just the trailer for the original "The Thing"
but its working fine on my end..
ETA: was it really a remake? you mean they're remaking a remake? WTF
seriously, I don't get the money making part - they got enough money, and made money with the first one, and I'm not going to pay to see something I've already seen
which by the way is the only reason I saw the remake of Halloween cause I never saw the original - I wasn't a Micheal Myers fan, I liked Jason Vorhees ♥edit on 26-9-2011 by Forevever because: (no reason given)
2nd ETA - why not just remarket the old movie?
if the object is to bring attention to it, then do that
I mean ok, if the first one was as bad as the first Halloween - then remake it!
But there's nothing wrong with John Carpenter's version of "The Thing"
and I IMDB'd for the original - couldn't really find a match
did it have a different title? cause I'd like to see itedit on 26-9-2011 by Forevever because: (no reason given)
