A new TV spot — the third to date, if you're counting — for first-time feature director Josh Trank's upcoming "found footage" movie, Chronicle, recently began airing and it can now be viewed online. Written by Max Landis, the movie applies a real-world perspective to the superhero genre by showing how easily three high school friends — Dane DeHaan (Amigo), Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails) and Alex Russell (The Wheeler Boys) — are tempted to abuse the super powers they developed after coming into contact with a mysterious substance. The latest spot contains new footage of the trio unleashing their newfound abilities on an unsuspecting world to devastating effect.
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.
