There isn’t much more to say about the Matthijs van Heijningen Jr’s confusingly titled The Thing, the film that isn’t a remake of The Thing, but rather is a remake of The Thing From Another World. It’s a project that I’m annoyed by, but that annoyance has waned somewhat recently. I still think it’s a little silly — both the 1982 and 1954 film stand up well over time, but hey. Remakes, death and taxes, right? Fuckers.

Anyway, after seeing Warrior, I’m a bit more interested because of the Joel Edgerton factor. It’s also nice to see Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje getting work, and I like Eric Christian Olsen, even if he’s been in some truly awful movies — he gets a pass for his role as Vaughn on “Community” and for the better-than-it-deserves-to-be Fired Up!. So maybe, you know, it’ll… um… I’m trying here, people. Maybe?



Here’s the trailer. Enjoy. Oh, it’s in Russian, but who gives a shit. You get the gist of it easily enough. It’s got some nifty new footage that wasn’t in any of the earlier domestic trailers, so quit your goddamn crying.
