Every time that we discuss the prequel to The Thing, a sense of both sadness and bewilderment washes over us. Short of the ridiculous third act and the dumb decision to change the way that them crazy Swedes access the UFO, there was a good movie in there.
Following up on yesterday's release of a new one-sheet for Universal Pictures' Jurassic Park 3D, we now have the trailer to go along with it. Even after two decades it's impossible to watch it without grinning from ear-to-ear!
Universal is moving forward with its reboot of The Mummy, and it looks like Len Wiseman (Total Recall, Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard) is going to be the guy behind the camera. Share your thoughts in our comments section!
Universal Pictures Does the Release Date Shuffle: Jurassic Park in 3D Moved Up and R.I.P.D. Pushed Back
With the summer of 2012 winding down, it's time to look ahead to the hot months of 2013; and Universal Pictures is doing a bit of shuffling of two films coming out then: Jurassic Park in 3D and R.I.P.D.
Two badasses and one of the 1980's most lovable geeks are set to star in Dead in Tombstone, the Roel Reine-directed action adventure film that begins filming next week. Before you ask why we're covering it, check out the synopsis - with Micky Rourke playing the devil, how could we resist?
More Proof that Something Went Horribly Wrong on the Way to Bringing The Thing 2011 to the Big Screen
In his editorial on The Thing premake, Michael Felsher mused that something had to have gone wrong during post-production on the flick. The film just switches gears into a CGI-laden mess. Where were the practical effects? Well, sadly ... we're about to show them to you.
Howdy, pardner! Step right up, kick off yer boots and sit a spell. We've got several clips from the Cowboys & Aliens Blu-ray on tap with the usual hooch. Take a deep swig, will ya? Much obliged!
The extremely ill-received Dream House (review here) is getting set to make its debut on DVD and Blu-ray. Let this news item serve as your warning. Not even the director wanted anything to do with this one by the time all was said and done.
The premake of the John Carpenter classic The Thing is on its way to DVD and Blu-ray, and if you didn't see it in theatres, now's your chance to decide which camp you'll fall into - forgiving and happy, indifferent, or flaming pissed.
To call the premake of The Thing a mixed bag is a bit of an understatement. Even after all these weeks have passed, we still can't shake the feeling that there was behind-the-scenes turmoil we may never be privy to. The film for the most part was a decent combination of CGI and practical effects--that is, until the third act, when some sort of switch was flipped and we got an entirely different movie.
It's only been a few weeks since the release of director Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr.'s version of The Thing, and to tell you the truth, I'd all but forgotten about it until this week's Motion Picture Purgatory arrived from Trembles. Check it out, and see if you agree with his take on the flick.
Remember the box office report I wrote a few weeks ago in which I complained that some of the horror flops of August/September should have been held until October for a better chance to make some Halloween box office? Well, scratch that theory.
The prequel to John Carpenter's classic of the same name, The Thing, is finally opening in a theater near you, and as usual we want to help you decide if you should part with your hard earned dough by putting together this neat package of coverage.
