    Obviously a green screen shot. The CG helicopter will be comped in later. This scene involves the hero rescuing his love interest from the baddy with the harpoon gun.

    Chas,
    I was thinking similar, but I can’t quite tell: is there a third tentacle end up there too?

    Yay, it’s Thing:

    For example, researchers who cut off an octopus’s arm (which the octopus can regrow) discovered that not only does the arm crawl away on its own, but if the arm meets a food item, it seizes it—and tries to pass it to where the mouth would be if the arm were still connected to its body.

    On the other hand, it would seem likely to greatly complicate any weight-loss plan.

    I was thinking Adam from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. And I am God! HAHAHA! (Or anyone else who wants to reach out and zap him to life.)

    Anyone else hearing Bert Lahr?

    “Put ‘em up… I could beat ya’ with most of my tentacles behind my back!”

    YES! That’s exactly what I thought of.

    Aw, he’s so cute. I’m want to love him and hug him and pet him and call him George.

    All I hear is Tchaikovsky.

    Aw, he’s so cute. I’m want to love him and hug him and pet him and call him George.

    What do you do if he misbehaves? There’s no fur to rub the wrong way.

    First thing I thought of was the cinematic wonder Sharktopus. Maybe he can be in the sequel.

    hmmm.
    I think you’re right.

    Well, only 2 of them are clenched.
