A film that just was begging to be made I guess. Love the 80’s cars and “costumes” you can see from the trailer. It seems odd that this would be in California as I would choose a place like Flint, MI or (of course) Waukesha, WI as a better place. Actually in Waukesha’s case there are still plenty of heschers walking around resplendent in high top black Reeboks, stone washed jeans and painters caps.
The short film rumors were not just a rumor. That looks to me a lot like Nashville…
It’s so Hollywood meh in the “THIS IS HOW YOU SHOULD FEEL RIGHT NOW” vein as expected, and what they had to do: however some parts are indistinguishable from the Inception sound track! For such an electronic movie why did Disney settle for second-rate electronicists? It should have been Richard D. James!
Norwegians. Remember them? They flew in over the station in a helicopter chasing a dog. One got shot inside the eye and the other got blown up real good. Their lines were not subtitled so it sounded like gibberish. There were other Norwegians–lots of them died at their own base–but what really happened?
Thing 2, coming out next year, details the events that happened before the fateful helicopter chase. Notable: the main protagonist is a chick, and it’s a Norwegian film. More here.
I expected Hollywood to puke a sequel out in the last few years along the lines of Highlander 2, but shockingly, this doesn’t look like some rehashed Hollywood schlock from the imagination-devoid hack writer’s guild to cash in on the street cred of one of the finest horror films ever made.
Oh and if you haven’t read this fanfic of the original film from the Thing’s point of view– get on it.
