Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has scheduled Josh Trank’s breakthrough hit “Chronicle” to arrive on DVD and Blu-ray May 15, 2012. Press release for the home release boasts an “extended cut loaded with must-see deleted scenes”, though when you take a quick look at the actual specs for the Blu-ray version (where most of the extras are stuffed these days), you don’t really see all that much “must-see deleted scenes” listed. In fact, you get one deleted scene, which is listed as “Matt and Casey in the Kitchen”. I’m not sure if that’s the entirety of the deleted scenes that makes up this “extended cut”, but if it is, I will be very disappointed.
Three high school students make an incredible discovery, leading to their developing uncanny telekinetic powers beyond their understanding. As they learn to control their abilities and use them to their advantage, their lives start to spin out of control as their darker sides begin to take over. What starts out as fun and games quickly becomes dangerous and they must face the inevitable question of whether they can handle the responsibility that comes with their remarkable powers.

Wow, not even an audio commentary? This is the kind of movie that’s perfect for a couple of audio tracks, one by the cast and one by Trank and his co-writer Max Landis. Color me very disappointed with the “extras” on this one.
