DreamWorks has just released a new teaser trailer for their upcoming sci-fi film entitled “I Am Number Four”. The film is directed J.D. Caruso and produced by Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay. “I Am Number Four” is based on the novel by Pittacus Lore that was released earlier this year. Here’s Amazon’s description of the novel:

John Smith has just arrived in Paradise, Ohio, just another stop in a string of small towns where the 15-year-old has been hiding out from the Mogadorians. Those terrifying aliens are hellbent on destroying him and the other nine Loric children who have sought refuge on Earth. The Mogadorians are picking off the surviving kids in numerical order. The first three are dead and John’s number is up. Will his Legacies, his defining super powers, develop in time for him to fight against the enemy? “I Am Number Four” is a breathless page-turner of a sci-fi novel that will have readers rooting for the teen alien who must unleash his firepower to save himself, his human friends, and the planet. This is the first of a slated multi-book series that, judging by this first book, will help reinvigorate a traditional YA genre that’s grown a bit light on strong character development. So, gear-up sci-fi fans, the battle for Earth is on and there’s a new kid in town!

The film stars Alex Pettyfer (Beastly), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories), Dianna Agron (Glee), Kevin Durand (Wolverine), Callan McAuliffe (Flipped), and Jake Abel (Supernatural). “I Am Nummer Four” is scheduled to be released February 18, 2011.
