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 and stars Joel Courtney, Jessica Tuck, Joel McKinnon Miller, Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, Riley Griffiths, Gabriel Basso, Kyle Chandler. The film is directed by J.J. Abrams.
