Chronicle Trailer: Superheroes In A Found Footage Movie That Might Be Worth Seeing

I’m tired of the found footage movies, people. Tired. Tired of the hauntings, tired of the screaming, tired of the sniffling and crying and “I’m so scared!” The idea isn’t totally without merit, I’d just like to see something new.

Enter Chronicle, a little film from 26 year-old director Josh Trank and starring Dane DeHaan (“In Treatment”), Michael B. Jordan (“Parenthood,” “Friday Night Lights”) and Alex Russell. It’s about three friends who stumble into a mysterious… something… and gain superpowers. With one of them filming, their powers gradually grow stronger, but their friendship begins to fracture as they drift towards good or evil.

Take a look:

I admit, I’m intrigued. It looks like some impressive low-budget effects, and while the story isn’t exactly a new one, it’s told in a different enough fashion from both found footage films and superhero films that it’s piqued my interest.

Whaddaya think?
