Yesterday we got the Russian poster, today we get the Russian trailer for Universal's upcoming thriller The Thing. Despite it's rather untelling title, director Matthijs van Heijningen Jr.'s The Thing is not a remake or a reboot, but rather a true prequel to John Carpenter's 1982 cult classic, which was, in fact, a remake. The story here tells what happened to the group that encountered The Thing before Kurt Russell and his crew happened upon it. Check out some new gore and an extra bit of violence in this latest look at The Thing below.
