The highly-anticipated prequel The Thing is released in cinemas on 2nd December 2011. If it is anywhere near as good as this summer’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, we are in for a treat. Although the production of sequels, prequels and remakes seems endless, John Carpenter’s The Thing was a remake itself. What is interesting about this most recent film is that it happens immediately before the first film. In the featurette above, cast and crew discuss recreating that world.
