Trailer: I Am Number Four

Dreamworks’ I Am Number Four is based on the young adult novel of the same name about a group of young aliens, and their teachers, who flee their war ravaged planet and land on Earth. Now they are on the run from those who want to kill them, not named in the trailer, but in the book they are called the Mogadorians. The interesting conceit? The kids can only be killed in number order and for the book/movie, the first three have bit it.

An honest to good SD premise, but the movie looks like Heroes meets Twilight. The book actually sounds better to me, but then again, isn’t that almost always the case?

    The Shining was a better movie….
