'I Am Number Four': The trailer looks like something (or things) we've seen before

Like many people, you probably are struggling to nail down your plans for Feb. 18, 2011.

Well, you're in luck. A new trailer for "I Am Number Four" -- a sci-fi thriller based on the book by James Frey and Jobie Hughes -- provides a hint of what may await on that Friday two months from now, assuming that you choose to see "I Am Number Four" on the day it opens.

Among other things, you'll be treated to: an alien boy (played by Alex Pettyfer) who apparently is hiding from potential murderers by attending Forks High School ; Dianna Agron of "Glee," playing a teen with insecurity issues; supernatural, superheroic feats involving flashes of white light and that appear to have been ripped from a season one episode of " Heroes "; another alien/human who can dash along walls during action sequences, "Matrix"-style; and a kid whose unusual powers are vital to the greater good, otherwise known as what you've seen in pretty much every sci-fi-ish action movie ever.

But why describe it when you can just watch the trailer yourself?
