From the moment I woke up that morning I knew something incredible was going to happen.
It was press day for the film “Chronicle” and I was set to interview the films Director Josh Trank and the three main cast members Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan. I drove to the 20th Century Fox studio and was shuffled into a soundstage for my interviews.
First up was Director Josh Trank. Our interview was fine up until he let slip that he had specifically cast DeHaan, Russell & Jordan because of their unique abilities. Unique abilities? I continued to pester him for information until he said they “might” have their own telekinetic secrets. It was preposterous, I know, but for some reason the PR person in the room ended the interview right then and there and sent me off to interview the cast. Strange right?
I still had another 2 minutes with him. I walked next door to another soundstage containing our “heroes”. Before asking my prepared questions I had to see if what Trank had let slip had any weight to it. The video below is actual footage from my interview that was never supposed to see the light of day.
Luckily I have some sneaky friends who work at the studio and they were able to send this over to me. I was asked to sign a piece of paper saying I would never speak about what I saw there that day. I gladly signed in exchange for proper interviews. Seeing as those interviews are now up (Josh Trank & Cast) for the world to see I thought it a perfect time to reveal this to our readers.
I couldn’t believe it on the day but seeing this footage again really freaks me out. Check it out and see the real deal in theaters now (and click here for our Chronicle coverage)!!
