‘Super 8’ Alien Monster Concept Art

A new image has surfaced claiming to be from J.J. Abrams upcoming sci-fi thriller.

A new piece of concept art claiming to be from Super 8, J.J. Abrams' secretive sci-fi ode to all-things Steven Spielberg, has popped up online. And it's a gnarly beast with sharp teeth and four arms. Its under-armed webbing and general fish-like appearance certainly ties in with the fishing aspects of the movie as presented on the viral site Hook, line, and minker. And the photo is further authenticated by the Paramount Pictures and Bad Robot logos tagged at the bottom of the image. The pic apparently came from an IMDB user who stated:

"So, my friend's brother's wife works for a company that does marketing for films, video games, music, etc. Occasionally she'll get chain mails from these companies, which aren't supposed to go to them. A few days ago she received a chain mail intended for the production staff within Paramount."

Here is the photo in question:

We'll only know if this is authentic by how soon we are told to take it down. Which could be any moment now. So get a good look.

Super 8 was released June 10th, 2011.

    Might be another hoax, like Cloverfield

      That's the same concept art that was floating around when people were speculating about Cloverfield. It's not related to Super 8. The artists name, I believe is Patrick Reilly.

            Dang, that's a creepy monster indeed. But who knows if this is the real deal or not. I'm guessing most likely not but you never know...

                    Someone is going to get fired...lol....(read it in a singing voice with s laugh) lol

                    I would have much rather seen something come from left feild. How about a regular looking human with these powers... Now that would have been better then some wacky monster....

                      Sweet. Man, as a homage to Spielberg's earlier films, I hope this turns out well for Abrams' and Spielberg's sake.

                      BTW, the monster in Cloverfield was confirmed as just a child. So I doubt that this is a baby version of the cloverfield monster. Lol.

                                the monster doesnt have 4 arms, it apparently has 6 limbs. look how its standing. the other 2 we cant see are behind the front right. see how there is 3 on just his left side? presuming he is a being that has some symmetry, we can assume he has 6. just saying.
