The upcoming thriller Chronicle takes the form of a found-footage documentary, as three high school friends film themselves discovering something mysterious in the woods and then experimenting with newly discovered superpowers. Things begin fun and then turn apocalyptic — it’s vaguely reminiscent of John Arcudi’s A God Somewhere, if you’re a comics head. The full trailer just debuted, along with a clip. Check out both videos below. Start the debate: Will this be hugely successful and disappointing like Blair Witch Project, hugely successful and disappointing but secretly brilliant like Cloverfield, or so hugely successful that it leads to disappointing sequels like Paranormal Activity?
