Concept designer and creature creator Neville Page has worked on such films as "Green Lantern," "Tron: Legacy," "Piranha 3D," "Avatar," "Star Trek," "Cloverfield," "Watchmen" and many others.
Wired caught up with Page (watch video below), who said that he has now been tasked with figuring out what the monster will look like in JJ Abrams' "Super 8" sci-fi film. "When that door blows open, it's the ultimate reveal," he said of the teaser trailer. "It's Elvis or something."
He went on to say that Abrams will likely rely on classic special effects to bring the monster to life, rather than making it completely computer animated. "I'll bet you anything there's going to be a rubber something or other at some point," said Page.
He also revealed that Alexandre Aja asked him to ask Cameron to make a cameo in "Piranha 3D," since Cameron directed the second installment back in 1981. Unfortunately, the Oscar-winning director was busy making "Avatar" at the time.
Well whatever creature is in that train car, it has Magneto type powers. Watch the trailer closely and you'll notice the truck heading for the train is a panicked driver with no control over the steering wheel, so the creature is pulling the truck in soon as it awakens within the train car. Also bolts are flying out of the train door even before it is mysteriously being punched as well is the door wheel handle moving. And then the super eight kids/teens find the creature on their film they help it get back home, saving our planet before the aliens race comes to destroy and conquer if we realize they exist, and we have one of their own.
Just my take on this mysterious trailer.
