has revealed new images from the thriller Chronicle, a film whose director Josh Trank is getting as much buzz as the movie itself.
Chronicle centers on three high school friends (Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell) that 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. The film also stars Michael Kelly, Ashley Hinshaw, Bo Petersen, Anna Wood, Rudi Malcolm, Luke Tyler, Crystal-Donna Roberts, Adrian Collins, Grant Powell, Armand Aucamp, Nicole Bailey and Lynita Crofford.
Chronicle hits theaters on February 3rd, 2012.
Below are new images, the latest teaser trailer, and the official synopsis for Chronicle:
Andrew, Matt, and Steve are recognizable teens, each with a distinctive personality and each facing relatable challenges that come with being in high school, forming new friendships, and exploring new facets of their ever-changing lives. They’re imperfect, awkward, and a little reckless.
They could be you.
Like so many of us, they’re obsessed with chronicling their lives, however mundane – or in their case, however extraordinary. For Andrew, Matt and Steve have stumbled upon something beyond their – or anyone’s – understanding. Their discovery leads them to acquire powerful telekinetic abilities; in graphic novel parlance, they have superpowers.
They’re now capable of, well, almost anything. They can move objects just by thinking about them, crush cars through force of will. They learn to fly…the ultimate wish fulfillment.
Then things get dark.
What would you do if it happened to you? What would you be capable of?
Those are the intriguing questions posed by Chronicle, a new film unlike any you’ve seen before. It’s a superhero movie that’s not really a superhero movie. On the surface it belongs in the relatively new sub-genre of “found footage” or “P-O-V” films, but it turns their conventions on its head. It’s thrilling, yet relatable; rich with creatively conceived and executed camera work and visual effects, but grounded in reality.
