A few days ago we got a great poster for The Thing prequel. At the time I guessed we would be getting actual footage come Cowboys and Aliens time, but thankfully, I was wrong. Today a full-length trailer got released, and it’s as cool as Antarctica! Get it? Because it’s really cold there and all?

Bad jokes aside, this trailer effectively plays up the mystery and paranoia aspect.

I still can’t tell whether they’re going for something more fast-paced or if they’re sticking to being a slow-burn, but either way, it looks like a solid, R-rated atmospheric horror film. I just hope they somehow managed to not make an unneeded retread full of the same situations we saw in Carpenter’s original.

At least they didn’t make this a total sausage festival, which is an obvious deviation from the 1982 film. I look forward to seeing Mary Elizabeth Winstead wield a flamethrower, kicking some ass and not being a passive damsel in distress.
