Universal Pictures is paying $20,000 to settle with a group of Alaskan newspapers that felt their credibility was undermined by the studio when it promoted The Fourth Kind. The publicity arm for the movie studio created a series of false newspaper reports about missing persons around Nome, Alaska to build the illusion that the events depicted in the science fiction/horror movie were based on true events. The fake articles were shaped to resemble legitimate newspaper stories and even used the titles of the Alaskan newspapers to add the appearance that they were legitimate.
After seven Alaskan publications brought their case to Universal the studio agreed to settle by offering $20,000 to the Alaska Press Club for the benefit of journalism in the northern state. Universal Pictures has chosen to not comment on the matter.- Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. Comment on this Scoop (0)

The film's trailer just dropped and if it sets one tone for the movie, it's that it's going to be a scary ride.
Sci Fi Wire also got an official synopsis of the movie from Universal Pictures:
1n 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.- Sci Fi Wire. Comment on this Scoop (0)
