Universal Pictures has released the first trailer for The Fourth Kind. No, this is not a sequel to Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of a Third Kind (lets hope that never happens) This sci-fi thriller is directed by Olatunde Osunsanmi and starring Milla Jovovich as a psychologist who “unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented.” The most interesting thing about this film is that it is a “fact-based thriller” based on an ongoing unsolved mystery in Alaska, where one town has seen a large number of unexplained disappearances during the past 40 years. The trailer even makes mention of this, using Jovovich as herself to explain that the film is a “reenactment.”
“A UFO sighting is referred to as an encounter of the first kind…When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind…Contact with extraterrestrials, is an encounter of the third kind… The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind. This encounter has been the most difficult to document… Until now.”
Check out the trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
