Fathom Events and Universal Pictures have teamed up to rerelease American filmmaker John Carpenter’s 1982 movie “The Thing” in theaters, just in time for the fortieth anniversary.
The movie featured a star-studded cast that includes Kurt Russell, Wilford Brimley, T. K. Carter, David Clennon, Keith David, Richard Dysart, Charles Hallahan, Peter Maloney, Richard Masur, Donald Moffat, Joel Polis, and Thomas G. Waites.
It centered around a team of researchers in a remote facility in Antarctica who find themselves being hunted by an alien that takes the form of its victims.
The movie is based on the 1938 short story “Who Goes There?” by John W. Campbell Jr.
“The Thing” movie will have screenings on both June 19 and 22. It will also feature vintage, behind-the-scenes footage from “The Thing: Terror Takes Shape”, a making-of documentary that was originally included on the 1998 DVD release of the movie.
