What's The Thing With THE THING?

The thing about the new THE THING you need to know is it's a prequel to this thing, THE THING with Kurt Russel from 1982:

But that THING, is actually a remake of 1959's "The Thing From Another World":

Which itself, was based on a 1938 novella, "WHO GOES THERE?"

And people say Hollywood just recycles old ideas....

Anyway, the new prequel takes place THREE DAYS before the events of the '82 version, focusing on the events at the Ice Station that found THE THING first. And from this first trailer, it seems to capture much of that '82 tone and feel...

Now, in the newest and shorter trailer, we see much more of the creature, CGI and that the scares are fairly typical of the genre lately....
