Comical New International Poster for Josh Trank's 'Chronicle' Found
Boys will be boys. Yes indeed they will! Our friends at BadTaste.it have posted a new international poster for Max Landis & Josh Trank's Chronicle, the found-footage superpowers movie that we got a rather kick ass first trailer for a few months ago. Like the first teaser poster, this also features the three teenage boys who gain superpowers flying in the air, this time with that extra joke - of dropping a car onto the radio tower of a building. This movie looks like so much fun, I can't wait! And the marketing goes right along with it. I hope we see plenty more posters like this. How would you mess with your friends if you had telekinesis?
Three high school students and friends make an incredible discovery, leading to them developing uncanny superpowers beyond their understanding. As they learn to control their abilities, and initially use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control, and their darker sides soon begin to take over.
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.

A bit inspired by 'Hancock', perhaps?

This movie will be better than Hancock. That's not really saying much, as Hancock was one of the worst big-budget films of the decade. That movie took a really good idea (with an extremely dark and oppressive script) and handed it off to a marketing department to make it viable for mass consumption. The message of the script was utterly destroyed, along with all the characters. It felt more like a 2 hour commercial trying to sell the Hancock™ brand than a film with a story and characters and plot. I don't think Chronicle is going to be much of a 'fun' movie, tho. The trailer definitely has some fun moments in it, but it only deals with the first act of the film. I doubt that many of the shots in the trailer come later than a half hour into the movie. Besides, the budget isn't exactly big enough to pull off huge action sequences and stuff. I'd wager there's gonna be quite a lot of dramatic scenes in this and not many big action / super power scenes.
