Disney/DreamWorks has debuted the first poster for D.J. Caruso's I Am Number Four, the sci-fi action thriller starring Alex Pettyfer as a human-like alien from another planet who blends in to high school on Earth to escape from being killed by a rival species. Thanks to Collider for posting it. I've had the chance to watch the teaser a few times and I actually think this could be a solid sci-fi action flick with some teenager elements throw in for good measure, but I'm not sure how many others are interested. This poster has the standard blue/orange color mix and isn't very exciting, to be honest, but it's not bad. Check it out below!
John is an extraordinary teen, masking his true identity and passing as a typical high school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. Three like him have already been killed… he is Number Four.
I Am Number Four is directed by American filmmaker D.J. Caruso, of The Salton Sea, Taking Lives, Two for the Money, Disturbia and Eagle Eye most recently. The screenplay was co-written by writing partners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar (Lethal Weapon 4, Shanghai Knights, Spider-Man 2, Herbie Fully Loaded, "Smallville") and is based on James Frey & Jobie Hughes' novel of the same name that just hit bookshelves. DreamWorks is producing and Disney is bringing I Am Number Four to theaters February 18th, 2011.
