We recently reported that The Thing is getting a new German steelbook release in September, and now we can confirm that Zavvi are bringing this to the UK.

PLEASE NOTE – this is NOT a new steelbook of the recent, superb Arrow restoration special edition, but a freshly re-packaged version of the older Universal release.

Pre-orders will be live around 6pm UK time on Saturday August 18th, so ignore the ‘sold out’ button before then.

Pre-order: Zavvi

Horror-meister John Carpenter (Halloween, Escape from New York) teams Kurt Russell’s outstanding performance with incredible visuals to build this chilling version of the classic The Thing. In the winter of 1982, a twelve-man research team at a remote Antarctic research station discovers an alien buried in the snow for over 100,000 years. Once unfrozen, the form-changing alien wreaks havoc, creates terror and becomes one of them.
