Another ‘Chronicle‘ movie trailer has hit right before the film hits theaters tomorrow since the films not tracking so well, but it’s a definite must see for those on the fence.
The latest trailer (below) for the ‘Chronicle‘ fleshes out the full story pretty well which makes me wonder if the studio is a little nervous about it opening on Super Bowl weekend, but after seeing the film, I can definitely recommend it as something that will truly surprise you in a good way. I’ve grown weary of the ‘found footage’ movies, but this one puts it own spin and really is entertaining. It also takes the superhero movie genre and makes it more realistic to how real teens (and more than likely adults) would handle being given these special powers to control the material world with your mind. Hell, I’ve had my own fantasies after watching ‘Carrie‘ when I was a kid. I’ll be posting my review of ‘Chronicle‘ later today, but as you can tell it’ll be a good one. I was hoping that the film would be good since it looked promising, and it turned out much better than I expected.

Again, if you’re on the fence for ‘Chronicle’, you can definitely get off it and check this film out. This is a sweet original take on found footage to show the studios that you can do something a little off the beaten track and have a hit.
