Get ready for it, folks. The closer and closer we get to the release of Cloverfield, the super-secret monster movie from J.J. Abrams produced monster flick, the more ridiculous the news is going to get. Today we get another piece of concept art that could be pretty reputable. It appears to be close to the small tidbits of the monster that we have seen from the recent trailers, but who knows.

A reader named Miguel sent the following email to

“Here’s another interesting Possibility people on my myspace forum titled Cloverfield’s Monster Theories have been posting a picture of this monster who was created by Peter Konig who is Tippett’s art director for the upcoming, top secret JJ Abrahms production “Cloverfield”. Here is a link to the website from where this picture originated. Don’t know how true it is but looks more closer to what I see in the trailer then that rancor wanna be.”

And now, the photo:

Personally, I think this could be a solid lead, but there is no way to be 100% sure. So I will leave the debate up to you.

UPDATE: Our good friend Pete over at /Film pointed out to us that this could be a video game mockup by Peter Konig’s company, Massive Black. He pointed out this image that shows clay figures of this and two other creatures on a table in the Massive Black office. My thoughts are that this could be for something else, but it also could be an early design for the Cloverfield monster. What I do know is that if you head over to and check out Peter Konig’s designs, they all seem to fit into the same sort of vision. So while this may NOT be the monster from Cloverfield, it can’t be too far off. Also, for those of you visual ninjas out there, you can take a look at this slow-motion trailer clip and compare the real monster to the one in the above image. And be sure to let us know what you think…

So what do you think? Is this the real Cloverfield monster?
