What would you do if you suddenly had superpowers? In comic books, those that develop superpowers usually try to use them for good, but director Josh Trank's debut movie Chronicle takes a more realistic approach about how real people might react when given the "great responsibility" of superpowers.
In the "found footage" movie, Dane DeHaan (Amigo), Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails) and Alex Russell (The Wheeler Boys) play three high school students who develop superpowers like invulnerability and telekinesis after finding a mysterious substance near an unexplained crater. Two previously released preview clips have shown the boys finding the crater and demonstrating their newfound powers by throwing baseballs at each other, while another showed one (DeHaan) starting to use his powers for destructive means. MTV has released a new clip from the movie which shows the boys in more innocent times, studying telekinesis and then using that same power to play a prank on some female students standing nearby.
Written by Max Landis (son of An American Werewolf in London director John Landis), Chronicle opens February 3rd.
