High-res version

So this prequel is based on the 1982 John Carpenter remake of The Thing, which was based on the original movie (The Thing from Another World) which came out in 1951, which was based on the short story Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell Jr. Confused yet?

Forget the 1951 version and the short story as this prequel is about the Norwegian research facility on Antarctica in the beginning of Carpenter’s movie. Visually it looks like exactly like Carpenter’s version and even got the same paranoid feeling. Could this actually be a good prequel? As a big fan of Carpenter’s version I really hope so!

Directed by Matthijs van Heijningen Jr and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and a bunch of Norwegian guys.
