Universal has released a new featurette for “The Fourth Kind” and it’s called “abduction”. While I was kind of unsure about the film, Universal held a press screening the other night and I’ve heard positive things. But with the huge buzz on “Paranormal Activity”, it’ll be interesting to see if this film can gain some traction with moviegoers. Thankfully for Universal, “The Fourth Kind” doesn’t get released until November 6th, and I think by that date, people will have moved on to the next flavor of the month.
Anyway, if you’re a believer in extra-terrestrials, you’re going to want to see this featurette. After watching it myself, I’m a lot more excited to see the film. Watch it after the jump:
For those just tuning in, here’s the synopsis:
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.
