Time Out Melbourne

Chronicle’s director and star talk superpowers, the dark side, and filming up close and personal

At just 26, Josh Trank is ready to unleash his first blockbuster. Trank, who’s been working in Hollywood since the age of 15, recently posted a YouTube mock-home video that created quite a buzz, Stabbing at Leia’s 22nd Birthday – one for the Star Wars fans. Now, alongside screenwriter Max Landis, Trank has written and directed a sure-fire hit for the masses. Chronicle is a “mock-doc” that follows three high-school students who, after discovering a mysterious hole in the ground, realise they’ve developed telekinetic superpowers. Time Out’s Emma Joyce interviews Trank along with the movie’s star, Australian actor Alex Russell.

Chronicle screens from Thu 2 Feb
