Carpenter's The Thing in UK by Arrow Video

New 4K Scan From Original Negative

Last year, Scream Factory released a 2-disc set of John Carpenter's The Thing in the US. The release is a 2K scan of the interpositive and it contains some new extras as well. Now, Arrow Video has decided to top that with their upcoming UK release because not only will it be based on a new 4K scan of the original negative but it will also be green-lit by director John Carpenter himself as well as Dean Cundey. In addition to that, there will be two new documentaries that are not even on the US release.

Release date is 10/23/2017 and the set will be released as steelbook and limited edition (4000 pieces each). It will also contain a poster, lobby cards and a book. The extras on the Blu-ray are as follows:

  • Audio commentary by John Carpenter and actor Kurt Russell
  • Who Goes There? In Search of The Thing – an all-new feature length documentary produced by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures exploring the history of The Thing, from the original novella to John Carpenter's terrifying science fiction classic. Featuring new interviews with the cast and crew, as well as authors, historians, and critics
  • 1982: One Amazing Summer – an all-new retrospective documentary produced by Ballyhoo Motion Pictures about the unforgettable films released in the summer of 1982
  • John Carpenter's The Thing: Terror Takes Shape – archive documentary on the background and production of the film
  • Vintage Featurettes
