    The Thing trailer

    If anyone's interested in storing it online - so it could perhaps be linked from ML - I suppose I can upload it. It's a hefty one, 20 MB, so if the connection were so-so, I think I would re-encode it at to a lower quality (right now it's a 1000 kbps DivX 5 with HQ sound)...

    BTW - it's, of course, John Carpenter's "The Thing" I'm referring to )) (Oh, and would anyone have a trailer for the first adaptation of the story, "The Thing From Another World!"?)

    I sent The Thing trailer to Tisoy a few days ago. It's now part of his list for people to request.

    I would encode and post the trailer, but I don't think JP wants me posting older trailers in the forum exclusives, he wants to save them as classics.

    The Thing


    Starring: Kurt Russell, Keith David, Wilford Brimley, Richard Dysart, Richard Masur
    Directed by: John Carpenter
    written by: Bill Lancaster
    produced by: David Foster, Lawrence Turman
    Plot: Based on both the short story by John W. Campbell, Jr. and the 1951 film produced by Howard Hawks, THE THING is John Carpenter's stunning mastepiece of horror. A group of weary scientists enduring the winter in an isolated camp deep in Antarctica chance upon an alien spacecraft buried in the ice. Near the strange craft is the body of an alien being, frozen solid. Thinking they have made the find of a lifetime, the scientists bring the alien body back to camp and thaw it out. The alien awakens, not in the best of moods, and proceeds to take over the identities of the scientists, one by one, body and all. Helicopter pilot MacCready (Kurt Russell) must lead the surviving men in discovering who among them is human and who is not and how they can destroy "the thing" before it takes them all and moves on to the heavily populated mainland and the rest of humanity.

    I downloaded the trailer, but I can't play it...it has sound but no picture. My WMP 8 doesn't download any codec (it's set to auto download codecs). Is there something I can do, or will I have to install WMP 9 ?

    I think you need WMP9. It's worth it though. The results from 9 are much better than the other players.
