I am Number Four may not have been receiving the press to make it a household name yet, but with producing pedigree like Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay behind it, you can expect a lot of coverage. And lots of ‘splosions.

The movie follows Number Four (Alex Pettyfer), the fourth of nine aliens that fled to Earth as infants to escape the Mogadorians, an invading race that have followed the refugees to finish them off. The Mogadorians are working the way down the list, taking the refugees one by one. The first three have been killed, and Number Four is on the run. When he meets a woman that he falls in love with, he decides that it is time to stand and fight.

The movie is based on a New York Times best-selling book by Pittacus Lore (the nom de plume of authors Jobie Hughes and James Frey), and it is the first of a planned six part series.

The film stars up and comer Alex Bettyfer, best known for his Burberry modeling ads. Joining him are Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Dianna Agron (Glee), and Teresa Palmer (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice). It is directed by DJ Caruso (Eagle Eye), and scheduled for release on February 18, 2011.

Indiana Pacers vs. Los Angeles Lakers live stream: watch NBA In-Season Tournament final
People stand on the Lakers' In-Season court.

After one month of competition, only two teams remain in the 2023 NBA In-Season Tournament. The upstart Indiana Pacers will play the veteran Los Angeles Lakers in the finals of the NBA In-Season Tournament. The winner will be awarded the NBA Cup, and each player on the winning team will receive $500,000.

The NBA In-Season Tournament has been a slam dunk for the league. The players have been locked in for these tournament games. As we've seen with anything in the NBA, if the players care, the fans will, too. There will need to be a few changes involving pool play and the schedule in the future. With that said, the NBA In-Season Tournament is here to stay.
