First trailer for DJ Caruso's I Am Number Four beams down

09.29.2010by:

Only a few films into his career, DJ Caruso is already a pretty polarizing director. Most recently, he's had a pretty good film (DISTURBIA) and a pretty not-so good one (EAGLE EYE), and now he's attempting a project without the added help of one Shia LaBeouf.

It's I AM NUMBER FOUR, a sci-fi epic starring Alex Pettyfer, Teresa Palmer, Kevin Durand and Timothy Olyphant among others. The teaser trailer has debuted via Yahoo! and you can check it out below, and thankfully its more trailer than teaser.

I'm not sure what I think of it yet. It seems like a good concept to me, but one minute the action looks awesome and the next like a deleted scene from Smallville. See for yourself, and let me know what you make of it. Head over to Yahoo! for HD.

Extra Tidbit: I thought EAGLE EYE was better than everyone said, it just wasn't very memorable. TAKING LIVES was memorable only for Angelina Jolie's boobs.

Sooo... it's like the Force but no lightsabers??.. I remember another movie attempting to do something similar (Push)... Look how it turned out.

Aside from seeing the sexy Dianna Agron, it looks lame.

That was pretty fun! Caruso's "The Salton Sea" is one of the best modern noirs of all time, and anything he's attached to instantly has my interest. It helps that I thought the film looked fun.

I've liked all his films, to varying degrees, but his two best are "The Salton Sea" and "Disturbia".

If I'm fighting someone who's stupid enough to leave their back open, I'm not going to slide past them at waist level and slash the back of their knee just to piss them off. I'm going to stab them and end this, which is what I wish someone had done to me when I saw that happen. Sure, it looks neat to see a hot chick on her knees doing stuff with a sword . . . but it's completely illogical.

the voiceover was pretty awful and the rest of the trailer just seems like a jumbled mess. Why are they sliding around with swords?

Unfortunately I watched it without volume and thought it was THE COVENANT 2.

Eh...

The synopsis sounded interesting, the trailer looks really corny and almost TV movie-esque. Two gorgeous leads does not a good movie make.

Reminds me of the marketing for "Jumper," a movie I never saw due to pretty awful reviews. But the trailers were pretty cool. And this gives me a similar vibe. Even has a February release date.

D.J. Caruso's 1st film

Doesnt' anyone remember 2002's "The Salton Sea" w/ Val Kilmer, Vincent D'Onofrio, R.Lee Ermy, Peter Sarsgaard, Adam Goldberg & Doug Hutchison?

Nothing beats a recreation of the JFK assassination w/ pigeons!

I was gonna say. That's the film that makes me perk up when I hear DJ Caruso's name.

I've seen they have that on Netflix streaming. I'll have to check it out.

Very true. Kilmer does needs some good roles thrown his way also a good gym as well. He's starting to balloon up like Marlon Brandon.

Trailer was good. I have faith in Caruso to make this memorable. He has directed some really great movies, The Salton Sea and Disturbia. I would not be interested in this movie at all if it weren't for one name, Timothy Olyphant.

I see you changed "two Films" to "a few films", which is good, because I was ready to correct you. However, changing it to "a few films" does make the first paragraph irrelevant, because it doesn't even mention that Caruso also directed The Salton Sea, Taking Lives, and Two For The Money without Shia LeBeouf. And does five feature films qualify as "a few"?
