Final Chronicle Trailer Gets to the Point

Josh Trank’s “Chronicle” opens this Friday, but until then, here’s a new, final trailer for the film. I could do without the rapping, but whatever, I hear you kids love that stuff. The film is getting such good reviews with the studio folks that Trank is getting all kinds of offers to direct big-budget superhero films. That’s gotta be a good sign, right?

By now you probably already know the plot: three high school teenagers locate something shiny (and red) inside a hole in the ground that grants them superpowers. (Because, hell, what else would mysterious holes in the ground grant if NOT powers, am I right?) The kids use their powers for mischief at first, until one of them decides with great power comes great ability to kick ass and rob people. He, uh, does that, and the other two have to stop him. BFFs no more, as it were.

Starring Michael B. Jordan, Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell, Ashley Hinshaw, Michael Kelly, Anna Wood, Joe Vaz, Matthew Dylan Roberts, and Luke Tyler.

The kids come out and play February 3, 2012.
