This is intriguing… I was kind of over the whole ‘lost film’ style of films like “Cloverfield” and “The Blair Witch Project” but this one might just have won me back. “Chronicle”, the new film directed by Josh Tank (“The Kill Point” TV series), is the story of a group of kids who develop super powers and keep a video diary of their exploits. Now it might just be because I am a comic book geek but this interests me and I want to see this. Fox has made a trailer available to us and you can watch it below.
New technologies and social communities allow us to record, post and comment on every second of our lives, sharing our every emotion and opinion with the world, no matter how mundane. For three high school classmates who suddenly gain superpowers from a mysterious substance, the chronicle of their ordinary lives is about to take on extraordinary turn.
Initially they use their powers to play innocent pranks on each other and people around them, but soon they gain confidence and learn to control their powers better to take on more difficult tasks. Their newfound sense of immortality and impunity will force them to evaluate their own morality to ultimately decide where to draw the line about how far they should go.
“Chronicle” stars Michael B. Jordan, Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell, Michael Kelly. The film opens across Australia February 2nd, 2012.
