Monster (Almost) Revealed?

No, we're not talking about the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. We posted that back in July. It's amazing to see that even considered as new this late in the game.

We're talking about actual shots of the monster in the second trailer!!

The first glimpse we (might) see is on the new trailer at 47 seconds. (Thanks to Byran McMahon for providing the preliminary photos.) I've gotten a couple e-mails about this. It's hard to make out, but my first reaction is that this is simply bombs and a helicopter exploding, and the resulting smoke rising. Make your own assumptions based on these photos and by watching the trailer yourself.

The next reveal--which seems more plausible--is at 1:28 during the second trailer. (Thanks to Andrew Sarcona for being the first to e-mail be about this.) This is during the military attack scene. I think there are definitely some claws or tentacles or something destroying a building. Up top it could even be the monster's face. It's too early to tell.

Either way, take a look at each of the photos, and see how each one progressively becomes more in focus. Check it out on the trailer. I think you'll be convinced.

All analysis is preliminary, but we'd love to read your reactions to these shots. Please, use the comment section or send an e-mail.

Update: Slashfilm has posted a slow-motion video of this second scene. I think this is definitely the monster. Check it out.
