Chronicle, the unique found-footage, superhero origins story, shocked the world by topping this past weekend’s box office. The film follows three teens who awake one day to discover they have telekinesis. The newly discovered superpowers will at first be a source of great prank-driven fun for the three teens. Then, when Andrew Detmer (Dane DeHaan) begins to use the powers for his own needs, things get ugly.
His two friends, Michael B. Jordan’s Steve Montgomery and Alex Russell’s Matt Garetty have to do their best to contain their friend’s wicked ways. The film is chock full of excitement and is at its best with a slew of great Chronicle quotes.
