(Written for Lost In The Multiplex)
Directed by Josh Trank, science fiction film Chronicle has this week been given its first official trailer.
Set in found footage format, three high school friends (Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan) gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. It’s not long until they find their lives spinning out of control though, as they begin to embrace their darker sides.
The trailer, which can be seen below, will undoubtedly get you looking forward to this exciting take on this found footage style filming. With the likes of Paranormal Activity, Apollo 18 and the mass of other films currently experimenting with the camera-footage/documentary style genre, Chronicle looks like it will be a fresh of breath air, with a less-horror more-action filled film that we may actually enjoy without being scared out of our skin.
Chronicle also stars Michael Kelly and Ashley Hinshaw and is set to be released on 3rd February, 2012 in the US but no UK date has yet been scheduled.
