Okay, so I guess he really is a number. Here’s the full trailer for the upcoming SF/superhero-ish movie I Am Number Four, based on the book of the same name by Pittacus Lore, the pen name of authors James Frey and Jobie Hughes. (Here’s Jason Sanford’s review.) The setup:
The plot centers on nine aliens who escaped the destruction of their planet and landed on Earth, but are now on the run from those who destroyed their home world.
The conceit: They can only be killed in number order. Why that is isn’t explained in the trailer, hopefully the movie will. All in all it looks somewhat interesting though I can do without all the teen angst/romance stuff. Since the book is aimed at teens, I’m going to go ahead and say I’m not in the target audience.
