Haven’t done a Trailer Thursdays in awhile only because no trailers were worthy
of my precious time in writing about them.

Saw this trailer a few days back and I am totally on board with this concept.

It’s one of those found footage films a la “Cloverfield” or “Paranormal Activity” shot POV style.

It’s just 3 dudes getting superpowers (we don’t know how) who at first, are just goofing off with it, pranking people just for shits and giggles but then it’s used in a nefarious way with deadly results and it all turns to shit.

Definitely a new take on the “teen with powers” genre.

Directed by Joshua Tranks, a first time director for the big screen and Max Landis (son of John), Also, first time screenwriter.

It all looks very promising.
