Chronicle gets a cool new poster

Boys will be boys

A new poster has been released for Fox’s upcoming sci-fi flick Chronicle, and we must admit, it’s succeeded in piquing our interest!

The film sees a group of high-school lads making a bizarre discovery that suddenly bestows weird and wonderful powers upon them. A bit like Spider-Man then, but without the painful inconvenience of a nasty spider bite.

Our young heroes soon manage to bring their powers under control, but it isn’t long before things spiral out of control. As is often the way with super-human abilities.

The poster is a pleasingly enigmatic affair, with some excitingly gravity-bothering action accompanied by the deadpan tagline, “Boys will be boys”.

The boys in question are newcomers Dane DeHaan, Michael B. Jordan, Alex Russell and Michael Kelly, with first-time director Josh Trank at the helm. Chronicle is released in the UK on 1 February 2012.


Are you intrigued enough to give this one a watch? First impressions, please.

      Can't help feeling this is going to be a Misfits rip off....perhaps the trailer will change that idea.

      Ok saw the trailer. Yeah it looks like an American Misfits done Cloverfield style.

      @chaosdefined - Yeah but it's not like misfits contains anything startlingly original or anything. Heroes + skins = Misfits, not to mention the various comic books it lifts ideas from.

      The poster seems to have been lifted from the first ten minutes of Hancock.

      I'll agree with you there Badger, though I think once any idea becomes hugely popular it's difficult to see any other variations of the idea as being different.
