At first glance, Project Almanac seems like Chronicle redux, but with a time machine instead of telepathy. Same shaky camera, same idea of teens gone wild with powers they can’t control. But watch these five new quickie commercials that get progressively darker and nuttier, and tell me you aren’t hooked. Time loops, paradoxes. alternate timelines – I’m a sucker for all that.
In Project Almanac, a brilliant high school student and his friends uncover blueprints for a mysterious device with limitless potential, inadvertently putting lives in danger.
Written by Jason Pagan and Andrew Deutschman, the thriller stars Allen Evangelista, Sam Lerner, Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-D’Elia and Ginny Gardner. (via Coming Soon)
Project Almanac opens January 30.
