01.07.12 by BJSprecher
A new trailer for first-time feature director Josh Trank's "found footage" superhero movie, Chronicle, has been released online, along with a new preview clip. Written by Max Landis, son of director John Landis (Trading Places, Coming to America), the movie follows three high school students — Dane DeHaan (Amigo), Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails) and Alex Russell (The Wheeler Boys) — who develop powers like superhuman strength, telekinesis, flight, and invulnerability after coming into contact with a mysterious substance found in a crater. However, unlike the altruistic heroes of so many recent comic book movies, these teens use their newfound abilities for far more selfish reasons.
Here's the synopsis of Chronicle:
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.
