you cant have enough the thing releases!
You can when it will look like sh!t

They’ll probably make the pin the Petri dish blood test. Include the patch of the outpost company. And the steel will be a close up of the light from the Parker head or a blueprint of the facility or some sh!t

Soooo....

Put you down for 2 copies!? :D

It's your THING afterall. It would be a travesty if you passed, similar to if @jaws finatic said f#ck no to a new Jaws release. EEK!

Can't we just get films that don't already have steelbooks by the dozen?
Apparently not. I don't have casino on 4k or steelbook. So that would be good. But I just want an announcement now. And I just hope with the delay they have ditched the plastic. It will make titans so much better imo.

Easy pass unless it's the Arrow scan which was never used.
Universal UHD release of The Thing is using the Arrow 4K scan restoration

The 4K scan of the negative was done by both Universal and Arrow at Universal Post in USA
This how scream factory and Turbine media was able to use Arrow restoration as it was licensed from Universal


The UHD release has added HDR and would be a different encoding and is why looks different to Arrow Blu-ray release

Info from Universal
The Thing was shot on 35mm film and has utilised a recent full restoration from the original camera negative, done by Arrow for their previous release, to produce a new 4K DI from which this UHD is sourced.

Actually that sounds pretty cool, the petri dish, the patch, and an outlay of the base!

Pin and badge yeah. Predictable tho. But I don’t want any Blueprint or obscure through the Parker design. They aren’t mondo artists, it will look awful
