First Trailer for Chronicle Shows Having Superpowers Could Be a Bad Thing
10.21.11 by Ryan
"With great power comes great responsibility," someone not real once said, and it's a lesson the three lead characters in the upcoming indie Chronicle are learning the hard way.
Not based on any comic book whatsoever, Chronicle follows three Pacific Northwest high school students — Dane DeHaan (Amigo), Michael B. Jordan (The Wire, Red Tails) and Alex Russell (The Wheeler Boys) — who make a discovery that grants them superpowers. As they learn how to control them, they also learn that a dark side comes with uncanny abilities.
Shot in a "found footage" style (think Paranormal Activity), the first trailer for Chronicle has just been released, along with a new teaser poster.
Written by Max Landis (son of An American Werewolf in London director John Landis) and directed by first-time director Josh Trank. Twentieth Century Fox will release Chronicle on Feb. 3.
