'The Thing' Poster Needs More Wilford Brimley

We've remade John Carpenter's 1982 horror classic, The Thing, you fear? No, don't worry; we've just made a prequel to The Thing! A prequel that bears the same name as the original--like an alien taking on the shape of something familiar so that it won't be immediately recognized as fraudulent--and a prequel will likely have an almost identical plot to the original, but a prequel nonetheless, this time focusing on the Norwegian-run arctic station shown ravaged in Carpenter's film. Seems a bit unnecessary considering we already know the tragic fate that awaits the Norwegians (spoilers: they will all get dead as dirt), but hey, you could say the same thing for Titanic, so what do I know?

Anyway, here's the poster, showing the titular Thing attempting to mimic human form. Because it wants to be us! Right, Wilford?
