    Anyone seen the preview to the upcoming preview to Carpenter's 1982 masterpiece?

      Yep. Looks like a direct remake of the original.

        It's a reboot. Or is it a rethinking? Or a redo?

            I know, i was trying to get pinface going. If you call a prequel a remake or a remake a reboot, he responds with a long, autistic reply.

              God damn, they have a preview for a preview? Thats nuts.

              Now instead of just doing remakes, hollywood decided to just focus on more prequels and continuations of old movies that generally destroy the franchise good name but that doesnt matter as long as it has enough cgi effects to draw you into the theater and purchase your overpriced tickets. It's not about making a quality film anymore, it is only about making profits.

                1982's movie was NOT the original, have you seen the original 1951 movie The Thing from another World? the 1982 movie was a remake itself but a more faithful adaptation of the novella "Who Goes There" by John Campbell

                      Have you all seen the 1951 version and read the novella "Who Goes There" which inspired both versions?
