And the speculation begins... If you were around for the Cloverfield viral campaign you will remember people finding things in the trailer that weren't there, such as the monster in the smoke. Now I'm not saying that this is one of those cases, as it does resemble a face more than the smoke resembled the monster, but I'm sure many people will start finding things that don't exist in everything that's release or "found" for Super 8. With that being said, take a look at the image above courtesy of Carlton Halpert and make your own judgement.

This screenshot was taken towards the end of the trailer, just before the letters (which spelled out scariest thing i ever saw) are seen on the screen. Now, it does have the features of a human face, but it could also just be something completely different that our mind puts together as a human face when it's paused like this. Either way, I thought it was interesting enough to post up, so check it out and let us know what you think in the comments.

Thanks for the original screenshot/comment Carlton and Alessandra. And thanks to xUBIK for the updated one.

    In the part where the car crashes with the train, I heard the words ¡Oh, my God!, and in the Cloverfield teaser, when the head of the statue of liberty crashes in the ground the same words are heard.
    PD: May 15 is my birthday!!!! Yay!!!!!

    Also when we see the name of spilberg, me and a friend we saw something like jaws or even more, the face of a monster, some metallic sound and some scream, and something metallic, i don’t know(sorry for my english :s) maybe we’ve already seen the monster on the trailer

    I might have found what looks like a small connection to Close encounters of the third kind, the truck that hits the train looks as the same as when the first time the aliens contact Richard Dreyfuss aslo this happens on train tracks… Its really nothing but showing i guess a homage to Spielberg.

  4. @DeltaSpartan343 IT DOES SAY “OH MY GOD”…although it could be the guy in the truck, or the voice over in what it sounds like a radio transmission of sorts…

    I thought there was something more to this pic so i did the same thing what they did with the cloverfield pics and got what is possibly the creature in the film dunno you guys decide the

  7. Grace says:

    Wait, what letters did you see?

    Can’t wait for this movie to come out..

  8. Grace says:

    Never mind the letters question. I understand now ahahaha

  9. Narii says:

    I’m going to have to agree with Nelson, crazy shit,

  10. Ace says:

    @Nelson // That’s epic! Really interesting, for sure.

  11. Doug says:

    The opening is an obvious homage to Close Encounters – the scene where Dreyfuss is parked at the railway crossing. Even the truck looks similar. CE: 1977 Super 8: 1979. The child’s face may just be part of a longer piece of film shot on a Super 8 camera – which may also include alien footage(?). The shouts and metallic sounds may be from other scenes in the movie, but work well with this trailer.

    Back then, I remembered reading a biography of steven spielberg, it had him when he was a alittle kid, and he loved videotaping things inside his basement, even his parents would let him stay home from school, Anyways, there was one picture that had somewhat the exact same train wreck in the trailer, It was to say that the train wreck was from a little train model set he got. But that is all I remember,

  13. Joy says:

    I definitely see a face in that frame. It looks like a scared kid to me. Spooky!

  14. DjCrazybrows says:

    I think this kid could be either the one with the camera or the one in the truck.

  15. Joshua Arispe (Cocotones) says:

    hey guys! i know what who this is!
    i dont want to spoil the film, so email me at

  16. becky says:

    Actually I found a youtube video which shows the kid to be Elliot from ET. I don’t remember the video. Sorry for being so unhelpful…

  17. CarcinoGeneticist says:

    Its not that little faggot from ET! If it is than that is extremely disappointing…unless the movie is SUPER terrifying and it scars the kid for the rest of his life and he is taken to a Mental Institution like in a Lovecraft story or something!

  18. Janesmtih says:

    Its a picture or either SP or JJ as a child… Thats what I have beamed into my head anyways =P

  19. SamScheidler says:

    I’m really surprised that no one noticed this, but child actor Zach Mills is in the cast list. check out any picture of him, and you’ll see the unmistakable resemblance between him and this face.
