New trailer lands for Chronicle

With great power...

A new trailer has been released for indie sci-fi flick Chronicle, in which a group of high-school boys suddenly find themselves empowered by a host of weird and wonderful abilities.

Naturally, their first impulse is to use them for a bit of a laugh, causing girls' skirts to fly up, making teddy bears levitate, that kind of thing. However, events take a turn for the worse as the boys' abilities begin to develop beyond their control, and it isn't long before people start getting hurt.

Take a look at the new trailer below...

 

We're quietly excited by this one, as both sections of the film seem genuinely engaging. The early scenes in which the boys are just mucking about seem fresh and funny, whilst the inevitable shift into darker waters looks suitably ominous.

Starring Michael B Jordan, Michael Kelly and Alex Russell, Chronicle will arrive in UK cinemas on 1 February 2012.

Will you be seeking this one out when it lands in cinemas? Tell us, below.

      This looks like a genuinely exciting and fresh new take on the found footage sub-genre. Looking forward to this one.

      It's getting a lot of comparisons to Misfits but I've (ashamedly) never seen the show, so I don't know how close it is, but this looks like a great new take on young super-heroing going wrong to me and one to watch out for in Feb :)

      Oh, good God! I have often fantasised about having abilities like this (not specific super hero abilities like Spider-man or Superman, but generic telekinesis) and wondered what I would do if I had them... This movie is basically a film version of all of my teenage wet dreams...I'm gutted I didn't think of it first!

      Quite interesting trailer, I think it will be better movie rather than other chronicle movies. Kitchen Cabinet Design
