trailerclash 11: The Thing Filmed After The Thing, But Set Before The Thing

If a prequel is called the same as the sequel, does it make it a remake? We ponder this question as we take a look at the newest incarnation of “The Thing”, a prequel to 1982’s “The Thing” (see what we mean?) Plus, the return of the Three Musketeers and Sherlock Holmes, Martin Scorcese makes a family film, and  John Carter takes us to Mars. And because you asked for it, more Clashback!

  1. I’m tentatively looking forward to The Thing. I love the Carpenter version, and while the CGI in the trailer was a little obvious, it seems to do a good job of replcating the claustrophobic feeling of it and I like that they didn’t cast any big names and avoided going too mainstream Hollywood blockbuster with it. By the way, great point about the story basically being Ten Little Indians.
    I’m also a big fan of the BBC’s Sherlock and I haven’t seen the first of the Robert Downey Jr. movies, but I can’t imagine the being nearly as good.
    The trailer for John Carter looks very promising. I’d never ready any of the books or even heard of them before hearing about the movie, which is probably a good thing since I won’t be going into it with any preconceived notions.
    Great show, I really like how in depth the conversation gets. Keep up the good work.
