Trailer Watch: Found footage superheroes in Chronicle

I’m a little tired of the found footage thing, but Chronicle looks pretty damned interesting. The trailer shows you everything I know about the film, and likely everything you need to know about it before going into the theater. If you need some encouragement to watch the trailer, though, it’s about three kids who get superpowers (and then things get crazy).

Written by John and Max Landis (yes, that John Landis) and directed by Josh Trank, Chronicle stars Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell and Michael Kelly, and it hits theaters on February 3, 2012.

(Sorry to everybody outside of the US, because MTV Movies got the exclusive on this one.)

    Also darn, I wanted to make a found footage superhero film.

    Nothing makes for good advertising like restricting it to the US.  :P

    solid idea, and the whole cinema-verite/found footage thing is still under-utilized enough to work in this market…but I cringe at MTV Films.  Or anything MTV, really.  Call it a “child of the 80’s bias.”

    but in case no one’s bothered to watch it, and you like cinema verite – see Troll Hunter.  It’s just perfect.
