Flashy blue lights and evil alien killers with faces that look like something went wrong while they were under the knife abound in six clips from Dreamworks’ upcoming “I am Number Four”, starring Alex Pettyfer as a moody alien teen trying to blend in at a new high school. Not exactly an easy feat when blue lights keep shining out of your hands at the most inopportune time. I mean, come on, how do you ask a girl to the prom with that kind of “issue”? I’ve heard of growing pains, but this is ridiculous.
Extraordinary teen John Smith (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 (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 (Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to the others who share his incredible destiny.
Starring Alex Pettyfer, Timothy Olyphant, Teresa Palmer, Dianna Agron, Kevin Durand, Callan McAuliffe, Jake Abel and directed by D.J. Caruso.
The battle begins February 18, 2011.
