It’s total bullshit, of course. No scene in this movie is supported by archive footage, though it does appear to be the case that Milla Jovovich appears in the film. This is all entirely invented, wholly fictional (the Anchorage Daily News did some investigating).

The Fourth Kind opens in the U.S. on November 6; no U.K. release date has been announced yet.
