Trailer Of The Week - Week #1 - Chronicle

As flagged up by Row Three a couple of weeks ago, Chronicle seems to be flying under the radar somewhat in the film world, despite the fact that its social media orientated marketing campaign has garnered the trailer over six million views on YouTube. The reason? Well, its a found-footage superhero film, a genre-mix that, though inevitable when you think about it, also taps in to two things the collective consciousness seems to be getting somewhat bored of. If you can ignore that then it's an interesting premise and the trailer has a few stand-out moments but overall this seems like its going to suffer from the Cloverfield problem of having too many unlikable people on screen for too much time.

Trailer Of The Week is a regular Film Intel feature which picks a different tasty trailer of delectable goodness every week and presents it on Sunday for your viewing pleasure. Sometimes old, sometimes new, sometimes major, sometimes independent, sometimes brilliant, sometimes a load of old bobbins: always guaranteed to entertain.
