The sci-fi teen thriller I Am Number Four opens in theaters everywhere on Friday. The reviews are in, but they they are all hugs and kisses. But regardless of what Roger Ebert, the New York Times and Variety have said about the film, it will make some big bucks at the box office this weekend. Why? Here are 5 reasons why I Am Number Four will be a hit.
Alex Pettyfer – This is pretty crush worthy for the teen girl set. Those whose Robert Pattinson obsession has been played out, or feel like it’s time to see other people – in the form of a hot new young actor.
Dianna Argon – For avid Glee fans, it will be a treat to see Argon in a role more artsy that Cheerio. Plus many will be watching the on screen chemistry between Alex Pettyfer and Dianna Argon who just don’t play a couple on the screen but off screen as well.
Timothy Olyphant and Teresa Palmer – For those Justified or Deadwood fans, anytime you get to see Timothy Olyphant in a treat, in I Am Number Four he is less deputy and more dad. And Teresa Palmer, you can tell this role will catapult her to bigger roles, she sizzles.
Aliens, Action and Adventure – If you’re looking for a date night movie in that genre? I Am Number Four brings all three.
