Based on the popular young-adult novel (one of whose co-writers, I was highly amused to learn, is James Frey) comes the no-expenses-spared cinematic adaptation I Am Number Four.
Overseen by the inimitable Michael Bay—famous for his quiet, sensitive, meticulously observed meditations on the human condition—and directed by D.J.

Hmm, I’m not sure yet. It looks like a good action movie, but I’m not sure how it will be plot wise. The most exciting part of the trailer for me was when the blond girl from Glee showed up (“Hey, it’s Quinn!”). I’ll wait to decide on this one til more previews come out.
What did you think of the trailer? Will you go see this? Have you read the book?
