I Am Number Four (trailer)
Director: D.J. Caruso (Taking Lives, Two for the Money, Disturbia, Eagle Eye)
Personal Interest Factor: 3
“Slaves you were, and slaves you remain, but the terrible penalty of crucifixion has been set aside on the single condition that you identify the body or the living person of the slave called Number Four.” “I am Number Four!” “I am Number Four!” “I am Number Four!”
Director: Gregg Araki (Nowhere, Splendor, Mysterious Skin, Smiley Face)
Personal Interest Factor: 4
I’ve never seen an Araki movie, although I do have vague memories of him being a controversial figure back in the heyday of the ’90s indie world. This is about “the sexual awakening of a group of college students,” which actually sounds fairly ’90s indie to me.
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax, Goal II: Living the Dream, Orphan)
Personal Interest Factor: 5
Hard to know what to make of this. Looks like a retread of Taken by whatever studio hack director happened to be at the WB offices that day. But I do kind of like watching Liam Neeson doing Liam Neeson shit.
