With the success of found footage films like Cloverfield, Quarantine, and Paranormal Activity 3, it was only a matter of time before one of the hottest genres right now, the superhero movie, got the handheld-camera treatment.
The new Chronicle trailer shows some teenagers doing basically what I’d probably be doing if I discovered or developed superpowers, but then of course things get a bit more complicated when (at least?) one kid pulls an Anakin, setting up (what hopefully is an epic) battle in Seattle.
Not much besides the very brief plot blurb below is known about the film, which opens February 3 next year, but you can check out the trailer below as well and get more info here.
“Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides.”
