Super 8 Monster Details Revealed

Over in Australia, press and bloggers were treated to 30-minute sneak peak from J.J. Abrams new film, Super 8. Attendees were shown 3 clips with an introduction from J.J. himself. The first 2 scenes expanded on what we had already seen in the trailer but the 3rd scene is what people left talking about.

(Spoiler Warning)

If you don’t want to know I strongly advise you don’t read from this point on.

In the scene, the town sheriff stops at a gas station to fill up his tank. While he is waiting, he hears noises coming from the near by woods. Suddenly, a dumpsters goes flying past his head. The camera cuts to the point-of-view of the alien, as we see it rush toward the sheriff.

Inside the gas station, an employee with headphones on is completely oblivious the sheriff’s car being repeatably picked up and slammed into the ground.

The lights flicker on and off, grabbing the employees attention. He walks outside and sees the damaged patrol car. Off camera, he sees something and screams in horror. The scene cuts to a wide angle shot, showing the monster but it is obscured by the gas stations rotating neon sign. Even though attendees were not given a full shot of the monster, many say that the monster did have tentacles that stuck out around the sign.

So it’s a tentacle monster?

After hearing about this, it brought me back the indie film MONSTERS and I also remember that before Cloverfield was released that there were rumors running around that the monster was Cthulhu.

Should be interesting to see what JJ’s people come up with but for now we can only speculate what the Monster/Squid/Alien will look like.
