Take My Money: Vice Press Releasing Lenticular Posters for THE THING That Must Be Seen to Be Believed!

Vice Press is releasing a couple of unbelievable lenticular posters for John Carpenter's THE THING!

Fans of The Thing and amazing poster art, take not: Vice Press is releasing a lenticular poster for The Thing (by Drew Struzan) that must be seen to be believed. Take a peek below.

“Last year we had the honor of working with Bottleneck Gallery on their line of lenticular prints,” the folks at Vice Press tell us, “and this week we will be working with them to release another piece of cinema history, The Thing by Drew Struzan!

“Well known to John Carpenter and cinema fans alike, Drew’s iconic imagery for The Thing comes to life in these amazing lenticular prints. We’ve worked closely with the original source images to ensure that the art is replicated to the highest quality!”

Two versions of the lenticular poster will be made available:

·         A thinner (1mm), flexible PET lenticular print mounted on dense paper backing

·         A thick lenticular print (4mm), akin to plexiglass, called polystyrene. They call this one Lenticular Plex for differentiation.

Check out the trailer and synopsis for John Carpenter’s The Thing below.

Synopsis:
In remote Antarctica, a group of American research scientists are disturbed at their base camp by a helicopter shooting at a sled dog. When they take in the dog, it brutally attacks both human beings and canines in the camp and they discover that the beast can assume the shape of its victims. A resourceful helicopter pilot (Kurt Russell) and the camp doctor (Richard Dysart) lead the camp crew in a desperate, gory battle against the vicious creature before it picks them all off, one by one.

All versions of The Thing by Drew Struzan will be available Thursday the 25th of February at 5pm GMT/ 12pm EST EXCLUSIVELY at Vice-Press.com.
