Kick Ass New Artistic Posters for 'Chronicle' + Amazing Tilt-Shift Photo
What are you capable of? Whoa. I'm glad to see the marketing start ramping up in a big way for this flick, because it needs all the love it can get, and it's one of my most anticipated movies before the summer hits. Chronicle, conceived and directed by Josh Trank, is the "found-footage superheroes" film about teenage kids who get telekinesis. I've been excited for it ever since the first trailer hit, which came with a cool poster, and went really overboard when they showed us footage last week. These posters were found by GeekTyrant on their official viral Tumblr and they kick ass. Plus there's an amazing tilt-shift surprise photo at the end.
Here's the story - the first three were designed by artist Marko Manev (posted via Behance) and obviously have a central theme, focusing on the three main characters, their telekinetic powers and eventual struggle. Click on any below to see all of these posters full-size. My favorite one is the biggest poster as seen below.
And here's the tilt-shift viral photo that is quite awesome. Take a closer look at the guys in the intersection.
This last full photo (seen directly above) is one of my favorite promo photos I have ever seen. It was created by photographer Ed McGowan (who explains how he did it here taking a generic shot of the street) and uses tilt-shifting to make it look miniature, even though it's meant to be a realistic action scene. Awesome!
Three high school student friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives begin to spin out of control and their bonds tested as they embrace their darker sides.
Chronicle is directed by first-time feature filmmaker Josh Trank, of a few episodes of "The Kill Point" TV series. The project was conceived by Trank and Max Landis, son of filmmaker John Landis, both credited for the story, but only Max for the screenplay. 20th Century Fox produced and is releasing Chronicle in theaters everywhere on February 3rd, 2012 early next year. What are you capable of? Watch the first trailer here.

Tilt-Shift photography is awesome. I know a lot of purists who are against it, but I find it to be really cool. I am afraid the poster will outshine the film.

I have a feeling this movie is going to be more like Akira than the actual Akira movie currently in development

Out of all the posters that this movie has had these are the only ones that actually give people a hint at what the movie is about. All the other ones have been horrible.

I think I would like the promo pic a lot more if tilt shift wasn't so ubiquitous. Still, it beats all those photoshopped floating heads posters.
