EW Exclusive: Book trailer for 'I Am Number Four'

Posted on

Aliens walk among us, and now they’re writing young adult fiction. Shelf Life has the exclusive trailer for the highly anticipated upcoming YA novel I Am Number Four, the first in a series of books about a teenage alien (one of nine on Earth) on the run for his life from malicious forces. I Am Number Four was written by Pittacus Lore, an Elder alien from the planet Lorien who managed to secure a six-book deal with HarperCollins. (It should be noted that Lore is thought to be the extraterrestrial nom de plume of authors James Frey and Jobie Hughes.) Amazingly, a movie adaptation is already in the works, produced by none other than Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Take a gander at the “Truth is out there” book trailer below, filled with mysterious lights and crop circles, and let us know what you think.

So, what say you? Excited for I Am Number Four?
