super 8 creature monster alien concept

I noticed in the comments, and on other movie sites, that there is an image floating around that claims to be concept art from a Bad Robot/Paramount film and I feel like we're reliving the Cloverfield days all over again. I can say with confidence that I believe this picture is not related to Super 8 or even Bad Robot/Paramount at all. When Cloverfield started it's viral campaign there were lots of "concept" drawings that started to leak yet none of them were real and all done by fans of the project, which is exactly what I think this is. Actually this image may just be a concept drawn by someone for a completely different purpose, but someone found it and slapped the Paramount Logo on it. Also, Neville Page is the one doing the creature design for Super 8 (also the same person that did the Cloverfield creature among others) and he has a pretty distinct signature which, if this were legit concept art by Mr. Page, I think we'd be able to see even if we couldn't read it clearly.

So while this is a cool image I wouldn't get your hopes up for this being the creature. There is so much secrecy around this movie that I don't think anyone is going to get a glimpse of the creature until the movie comes out, just like Cloverfield.

Update (thanks to Jane): As I figured, it has nothing to do with Super 8. The artist is Patrick Reilly (http://preilly.deviantart.com/gallery/) and he's also responsible for some of the Cloverfield fan art that was floating around when people were talking about what that creature could possibly be.  Some of the guys on unfiction emailed Patrick asking if the art was his and they got the following responses:

Yes, except for all the writing.
Where did you find that?

Thanks for the heads up.

As for the Cloverfield art, that was just fan art based on the descriptions that some people had given.
A few days after I created it, I noticed several websites claiming it was official concept art.

Anyways, Ill look into those websites claiming it's Super 8 concept art.

So I'm still glad I posted this as it would have floated around for a while with people thinking it was real, so now we can move on.

    I’m very glad this isn’t it because I would be let down 100%

  3. MicMagellan says:

    its… cowboys and aliens, not monsters. little kids and aliens its more so close to encounters 4 than cloverfield 2. From all that RP stuff is strange that folks are still pushin for some building crushin creature. If it is true, i suspect a half breed fish alien, but thats too far fetch. …and fetch can’t happen on its own. The studio most consider the other flicks, and try to seal the deal with a strong pilot, i mean plot.
    Other than that how far has the campaign gotten, and why is hookline down? Has Josh kicked the bucket? I checked for DEC. calendar, but nah dah. O well it was great while it lasted. Back to making hand gestures to cloud masses. oh, j whats the deal with the blank page, and pdf. print out? I think the smuggest pic is his pop. Doing my A1 B2, T20 thing and i think im on the right track, but i was never good at the Soul Train scramble board. PLEASE HELP even if its holding my hand to cross the street.

      RP goodhumor :)~

      • Jason says:

        You got something against foil heads?

        Oh MicMagellan, we thought you were one of us. Is there anyone we can trust anymore *single tear*

  5. super8 says:

    jon shut up!you look like the creature you werido!

  6. Alec says:

    thank god.. i wouldnt even mind if we didnt see the creature at all in the movie!

  7. griles says:

    There are 2 new posts on the hook, line and minker sight says he’s getting his fish dec 10th

  8. James V. says:

    Hallejuah!!!!!! internet!!! finally!! okay so I checked RP again and it (unlike the .dat for STIES it isnt stalling) i know it sounds like a HUGE coincedence but it may be done by Dec 10th if not earlier which is really odd (also did anyone forget that we were supposed to get a trailer on thnxgving yet we never did I dont think its any coincedence…

  9. Babaji says:

    That is not an alien, just some sort of menacing creature, and I’m sick and tired of society immediately labeling aliens as aggressive and wanting to harm us.
    For me, this is why they don’t make their presence known once and for all, and they are waiting for the collective tipping point whereby all or most humans here feel that there is probably other life out there and would not be in shock when they arrive or uncloak themselves and their ships.

    What this alien, if there is one, ends up looking like, will ultimately make or break the movie for me, at least its agenda and how they portray it. With the Army being involved, its just like I said, shoot first and ask questions later.

  10. Jenkins says:

    I’m still thinking the monster will be a little more normal than what most people a thinking.
    I’m thinking human looking people with telekinetic abilities, found by the government and taken from their families, just remember the questionaire from rocket popateers, this could have been the screening proccess.

    Just a thought anyway…

    I think we may have just lost an opportunity to find a clue…now that HLM is back up

    i just recently watch close encounters, again, and if this movie is a tribute to old speilberg stuff, i hope they dont put a new twist with newer style aliens.in the trailer where something is busting out of the cart, i imagine the taller alien from close encounters. even though it looks fragile, having that kind of strength would give you chills. MORE GREYS!!

    • Janesmith says:

      My mind cooks up more horrifying things than anyone can create for a story.

      Monsters that tear humans to pieces while alive, Creatures that stalk you in the night and grab you when no one is looking, Goul’s that prey on children, things that look like humans maybe you have befriended them even and one day they turn into the real monster and destroy you.

      Oh wait i just realized those are not monsters.. that’s human beings I’m talking about.

      Too deep? sorry ~~~Jane

      • Jenkins says:

        I was actually going to respond with what you said right at the end.
        I like when movies try to create something worse than us so that it makes us look good…

  14. jessenyhc says:

    has anyone heard the mp3 audio file on STIES!

    all i could make out half way thru is:
    “…blue can, lion on it…”

    sounds like a conversation at a store(7-11 or something)

    i might be late on this, but i havent seen a post on here about that.

  19. Melodyman says:

    Most of us got that email questionaire a few months ago..

    • dmr8287 says:

      guess im behind in the times then but did you pay attetion to some of the questions?

      Question 16 : You sometimes can tell what your classmates are thinking?

      Question 7: You believe that aliens live on other planets?

      those questions in conjunction with other speculations from this website got me thinking.

      i remember awhile ago their was someone on the forums that said that they shot the breeze with a PA for the movie and that they let “slip” that the aliens in this movie are humans……..

      and the whole psychic alien thing just seems like it is a tab bit more truthful

  20. James V. says:

    Oh wow NOW im REALLY bummed but why it woulds it be THIS late I can understand a couple of days maybe a week but a couple of months? that WAY to long a set back that thing couldve been important too not that it REALLY matters…

  25. Monochromatic says:

    Wow, haven’t been on here since the whole facebook Josh Minker fiasco which was a brain child of mine… see that there is a flame war between someone who can’t bring himself to check the Timeline and someone who cannot pluralize the word “suck”

    And the ONE thing that I learned from bullshitting people into thinking that I was the “Real Cocotones” was that assholes… do not like other assholes. Now, personally… I think Admin does and has done a superb job of organizing a social congregation of Super 8 fans alike. And hey guys, while I have your attention, if you ever get bored of this because it is sooo slllooowwww… just check out the neat story of Call of Duty: Zombies. It features all the lovable characters of Richtofen, Dempsey, Taeko, and good old fasioned Nokolai

  26. Janesmith says:

    So back on track, what did you all think of the new printout from the 10th?

  27. will says:

    got the new print out……………….trogl anyone……yummy

  28. Jason says:

    Very interesting theory, however, I highly doubt that they would put this in the news, alerting many people in lousiana, for viral marketing in a movie.

    Common now, It takes place in ohio, not Louisiana.

  29. DemonG says:

    Cool pic thou can really scare the crap out of you . What’s the new printout , told you something would happen on the 10 .

  30. Meagan says:

    Im glad someone posted that pic of the hunters camera alien thing lol i was waiting for someone to show it since its part of the mystery 🙂

  31. will says:

    I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO SARGEL18.COM……IVE SEEN STRANGE THINGS IN MY LIFE BUT IM PLANNING TO GO SUMMER OF 2011 TO JERSEY………….TO EXPERIENCE THIS……..THE TRUTH HAS TO COME OUT………..EVEN IF I GO CRAZY……..MAYBE I ALREADY AM……….WHOSE DOWN WIT ME………SCULLY AND MULDER ARE DOWN………..HOW BOUT YOU…….
