Updated with hi-res trailer and two new images below. Thumbs up to Milla Jovovich for taking on a role very different than the action-packed ones she’s used to. Below you’ll find the trailer debut for Universal Pictures’ The 4th Kind, where Jovovich plays a psychiatrist who is learning that some of her clients may may have been abducted by malicious aliens. If anything, the trailer reminds me of the sleeper hit The Mothman Prophecies, a film still chilling to this day. Watch the trailer and tell us what you think.

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.
