The Fourth Kind Trailer

Courtesy of Apple we now have the HiDef version of The Fourth Kind trailer available to us.

A description of the film:
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.

First off, this trailer looks good and I'm actually interested in seeing this film. The juxtaposition of "real" archival footage with the re-enactment stuff creates a nice creepy feel to it. I did a little research to see what I could find on the "truth" behind this story. As I suspected, I'm fairly certain the archival footage is all just part of a "Blair Witch-esque" viral kinda thing to make the story seem more real. I DID however find out that the truth to the story is that Nome, Alaska HAS been the site of many disappearances that have never been fully explained and that the government HAS actually investigated this multiple times. So that combination of some small facts being truthful (even if it isn't the footage that is) makes this trailer seem a bit more exciting. In any case, I'm glad to see that Milla is back, and this might end up being a pretty decent suspenseful thriller that is coming out just after Halloween (the ideal time to see a film like this)!
