The first official poster for the upcoming premake ‘The Thing’ has just been unveiled and it looks a bit familiar, hmmm.
Yes the poster borrows heavily from Drew Struzan's iconic poster for John Carpenter's 1982 film. Ok it's not exactly the same but there are a few definite similarities.
Back to the new one, not really sure that the fact it is 'from the producers of Dawn of the Dead' is such a great selling point but I guess they couldn't put 'From a director you've never heard of with actors you've never heard of, although it has got that chick who was in Deathproof and Scott Pilgrim in it'. Despite the wimpy marketing, I'm actually reasonable optimistic that the film will be good having seen the leaked teaser trailer. Psst here it is, don't tell anyone I told you-
Directed by debutant feature filmmaker Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Joel Edgerton, 'The Thing' is set to hit screens October 14th.
