Watch: Time Travel Found Footage Film 'Welcome to Yesterday' Trailer
"Shouldn't the next step be testing it on us?" Paramount's Insurge low-budget label has debuted the first trailer for Welcome to Yesterday, a secret sci-fi project formerly known as "Almanac", a found footage time travel movie about Project Almanac. In brief, this can be pitched as Chronicle if they found a time travel machine instead of superpowers, and it looks good but not as good as Chronicle. I love the setup with the old birthday footage, but it gets a little cheesy with the bikini girls and of-course-it-would-all-go-wrong story, but I'm still interested in seeing this. You may not have heard of this movie yet, but you will yesterday.
Here's the first official trailer for Dean Israelite's Welcome to Yesterday, originally from Yahoo:
Plot synopsis: A group of teens embark on an adventure when they discover secret plans to build a time machine. Welcome to Yesterday is directed by up-and-coming filmmaker Dean Israelite (of a number of shorts previously), from a screenplay by Jason Pagan & Andrew Stark (both now on Paranormal Activity 5). The film was produced by Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes for Paramount's Insurge Pictures label. SlashFilm mentions that on their visit to the set they learned that they used the time travel to go "back a day or two to go to a concert they missed and to try and win the girl of one boys' dreams." Paramount/Insurge will release Welcome to Yesterday in theaters everywhere starting February 28th, 2014 early next year. Are you in?
