Oh, I'm sure "The Thing" has made money by now. Probably took a while, but given its enduring popularity on video, it's certainly turned a profit!The box office failure of The Thing has been overstated - it made $20 million and cost around $15, so it probably broke even by the time video and television sales are factored in. I love the movie, but it was something that was never going to appeal to a mainstream audience. They tried it again with the prequel/remake and it still flopped.
