I went to IMDB and it states that theres the 2011, and the original in 1982. The only other "Thing" I could find was "The Thing from another world" in 1951. Never heard of that one. Beer I too thought there were three. In 2009 they were going to make a film similiar but with a different name, "Army of the Dead," and from what I read it was cancelled before production started. Wonder if that's the third you were thinking of.

BEER----> As I understand, 'The Thing' by John Carpenter was his remake of 'The Thing from another World' and staring as 'The Thing' was James Arness of 'Gunsmoke' fame. So the one out now, I believe, is the third film. "Who Goes There?"

"The Thing from Another World" from 1951 was the first "Thing"-Film. Carpenter´s Film was a Remake of that one, but both films based on the short story "Who goes there?", that´s not a movie, just a short story. That said, Carpenter´s version was much more true to the short story than the 1951-Movie. So, the new movie is half prequel, as it shows the happenings before Carpenter´s movie sets in, and half remake, since it pays much tribute to Carpenter´s movie.
