THE TRAILER PARK: CHRONICLE

Welcome to the Champion City Comics Trailer Park. Every Saturday we will review a trailer of interest and give our take on the good and the bad.

This week, we are reviewing the Chronicle trailer. 


Here is the storyline courtesy of IMDB: Three high school friends gain superpowers after making an incredible discovery. Soon, though, they find their lives spinning out of control and their bond tested as they embrace their darker sides. 

Directed by Josh Trank (The Kill Point)

Starring Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights), Dane DeHaan (In Treatment), and Michael Kelly (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior).

The good: Judging from the trailer, this movie has the potential to be a early sleeper hit. We have an interesting plot where there is a mysterious discovery by a group of teenage boys and they gain superpowers. The powers seem to be used for fun at first but things go horribly wrong. It looks like we have a big battle at the end and this could be a very cool movie.

The bad: Chronicle has a release date of February 3, 2012 which is a down time for quality movies. Chronicle also has some release date competition with a couple of horror movies: The Woman in Black and The Innkeepers.

  1. It looks like an interesting take on the whole superhero thing. Asshole middle-class teens getting powers and taking advantage of/abusing them, rather than the same old 'accepting responsibility and throwing on a costume' stuff. Pretty hyped for this.

    Hopefully the sparseness of movie releases around this time will mean it fares okay, especially since there's still a week between it in The Woman in Black.
