Universal Pictures has revealed the first trailer for their alien abduction thriller, The Fourth Kind, which is based on real-life events. SCI FI Wire posted the debut trailer that you can check out in the video player below. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Will Patton, Elias Koteas, Corey Johnson, Alisha Seaton and Enzo Cilenti. Director Olatunde Osunsanmi led the production behind the camera from a screenplay he wrote with Terry Robbins.
Plot Concept: In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. When a UFO is sighted, it is called an encounter of the first kind. When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind. When contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is the third kind. The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind. This encounter has been the most difficult to document...until now.
Structured unlike any film before it, "The Fourth Kind" is a provocative thriller set in modern-day Nome, Alaska, where—mysteriously since the 1960s—a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year. Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered.
Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.
Using never-before-seen archival footage that is integrated into the film, "The Fourth Kind" exposes the terrified revelations of multiple witnesses. Their accounts of being visited by alien figures all share disturbingly identical details, the validity of which is investigated throughout the film.
The Fourth Kind will hit theaters November 6, 2009.
Here's the trailer.
