Science-fiction movie Chronicle
proved that films don’t need a heap of star power to be good.Chronicle
tells the story of three high school friends — Dane DeHaan
(TV’s In Treatment
), Alex Russell
) and Michael B. Jordan (Red Tails
) — who discover that they have superpowers. It’s all fun and games until things get dangerous. Soon the boys’ lives start spinning out of control and the friendships are tested.
The PG-13 movie doesn’t have a big name director, either. It’s the first feature film helmed by Josh Trank
(TV’s The Kill Point
) and the first movie written by Max Landis
, based on a story they came up with together.
Reportedly produced for a relatively low $12 million budget, Chronicle
was hailed by critics and grossed a tidy $64.2 million.
