This is probably not JJ Abrams' Super 8 alien but look anyway

Dec. 3, 2010by: Paul Tassi

Another year, another JJ Abrams monster movie, and its no surprise that "leaks" are starting to spring up around the internet, claiming to have the inside scoop on what exactly his alien(s) are going to look like in SUPER 8.

From the surely reliable IMDB user SS-Cotapaxi comes this picture along with the explanation of why it's totally legit:

"So, my friends'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 production staff within Paramount."

And voila:

Well, it's certainly alien looking, I'll give it that. It actually reminds me of some of the old Cloverfield "concept art" before that movie came out. Yeah, it's not quite what we ended up seeing, but it's on the right track, and perhaps this version could be as well?

Does it have five legs? Wouldn't that throw it off balance and cause it to fall over?

This is pretty cool looking, if this is what they end up looking like!

I hope the real creature looks as badass that. Give us something ferocious and scary. Anyway, I can't wait for this. I love monster movies.

At the bottom right it says Production/ -Paramount/ Bad Robot.

Below that it looks to have the date 6/15/10.

I'm just excited for a new Abrams directed film. MI:3 and Star trek are both extremely well directed and a lot of fun so hopefully this is in that vein.

Probably not the creature, but cool anyway. We had about thirty potential monster designs come out before Cloverfield.

Me hope your friend's brother's wife's housekeeper's daughter-in-law is correct. I would love to see Tom Hardy or somebody else as a Nolan-universe Croc.

Those concept arts only started cropping up after the test screenings (or whatever). They were based on people's patchy descriptions of the monster. I know this because I was knee deep in the situation, and also in contact with a couple of the artists who created them. They're not hard to get in touch with at DeviantArt.com

I'm hoping the real alien resembles that

This might be the closes thing we get to a Cloverfield 2, so I'm hoping this keeps me at the edge of my seat the entire way through. My main concern is that the alien won't really look menacing, but more cute and innocent.

Looks like a bad ass Murlock from World of Warcraft. Few extra arms though.
