It looks like Ramona Flowers has headed somewhere even colder than Toronto and is facing something far more dangerous than falling back into a relationship with Gideon Graves.

The trailer for "The Thing" remake has finally arrived and despite all the advance word about being reverential to John Carpenter's film -- which the film is serving as a prequel to -- it pretty much plays like your standard scary monster flick and that's kind of disappointing. Directed by newcomer Matthis van Heijningen Jr. and starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Joel Edgerton, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Eric Christian Olsen, the film will tell the story of the Norwegian team and the origins of the titular creature from the 1982 movie. But it brings with it all the standard trappings of a 2011 movie with jump scares, animals who seem to have a better sense of unease than humans, ominous hallways and multiple shots of people being pulled off screen by something. Maybe this is just a way to sell the pic? Let's hope so, because right now, we don't really see the difference between this film and any other similar flick with a decent budget. The film was also delayed for reshoots and to bump up the special effects and well, we hope that wasn't a sign of bigger problems with the movie that was originally slated to hit theaters this spring.

"The Thing" hits theaters on October 14th. Trailer below.
