If you haven’t seen it before, here’s the trailer for Walt Disney Pictures’ I AM NUMBER FOUR, the teen alien on the run Sci-Fi actioner directed by D.J. Caruso (DISTURBIA). Below, see the first poster for the film.
” Three are dead. Who is Number Four? An extraordinary teen, John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) 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 (Timothy Olyphant), 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 (Dianna Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.”
Screenplay by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (SMALLVILLE) and Marti Noxon (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER), based on the ‘Lorien Legacy’ novel of the same name by “Pittacus Lore” (Jobie Hughes and James Frey[BAD SEED]).
Due in theaters February 18th, 2011.
Does the premise remind you of strongly of the short-lived 1982-83 THE POWERS OF MATTHEW STAR TV series, or is that just a sign I’ve seen to many old TV shows?
