I Am Number Four


‘I Am Number Four’ 

Release Date: Feb. 18
Starring: Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Dianna Agron

The Scoop: With both “Twilight” and “Harry Potter” nearing their ends, both the movie and book industries are scrambling to find — or create — the next big thing. Their first attempt at genetically engineering a blockbuster franchise, Franksenstein style? “I Am Number Four,” which was simultaneously developed as a book and movie series by writer James Frey and producers Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Up-and-coming buzz magnet Alex Petteyfer plays an alien kid marooned on Earth; when the evil galactic overlords who destroyed his home planet come to destroy his new home, he has to harness his new superpowers in order to save the world. And hopefully the film and book industries to boot. | Watch the trailer
