From the people who brought you TRANSFORMERS and DISTURBIA comes I AM NUMBER FOUR - okay, I know that doesn't sound appealing, and in fact, this Steven Spielberg-Michael Bay produced sci-fi thriller has been but a tiny speck on my radar ever since it began production. However, I will say that the teaser trailer makes it look rather engaging (as is a teaser trailer's job); this may just end up being TWILIGHT with aliens, but at the moment it's not offending me like that concept should...
An extraordinary young man, John Smith, is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri, John is always the new kid with no ties to his past. In the small Ohio town he now calls home, John encounters unexpected, life-changing events -- his first love, powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.
I AM NUMBER FOUR stars Alex Pettyfer, Teresa Palmer, Dianna Agron, Kevin Durand and Timothy Olyphant; it hits theaters on FEBRUARY 18th.
