Chronicle (?)

CHRONICLE-2012-Three nerds receive superpowers after an encounter with some underground entity. Much of the story is told through the hand held video camera of Andrew (Dane DeHaan) a guy with an abusive father and dying mother. At first they mostly levitate things and do some practical jokes until one of them causes a car wreck. After one of them is killed Andrew loses control. To get medicine for his mom he kills, robs a store and blows up a gas station. He winds up in the hospital. Though there's lots of talk the finale where Andrew (kind of acting like Magneto)  brings new meaning to "angry young man" is really great.

At the time of this writing, DeHaan is cast as The Green Goblin in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 and director Josh Trank is making a new FANTASTIC FOUR movie.

Thanks for writing!
