The Thing prequel will hit Australian screens on 13th October 2011, a day before the UK and the US. Great news obviously if you’re a fan of the 1982 original like me, and are looking forward to the 2011 version. I know Gary from the All Action No Plot movie club will be interested in this one.
Thanks of course to Gary for confirming that this version, whilst rather confusingly sharing the same name as the original, is in fact a prequel, not a remake. The events in this movie take place just before those of the original movie, so should give us an insight into what went wrong in the first place with that damned dog.
