Chronicle knocked out The Woman in Black over the Super Bowl weekend to take the top spot and exceeded industry expectations. The film, directed by the much talked about director Josh Trank, took in $22 million in its first three days. It is currently setting at 85% on Rotten Tomatoes. With all the success, a sequel is of coursed going to be talked about. The films three stars Dane DeHaan, Alex Russell and Michael B. Jordan spoke on the potential for a sequel, while hedging their bets they did leave the door open.



DeHaan

I just hope people like the movie and leave the movie wanting more. Hopefully if we leave people wanting more then we can think about what comes next.



Russell doesn't want anyone to get their hopes too high

I think there's potential for it to go in many different directions after the lights go down on 'Chronicle,' it obviously holds up as its own story and it's probably good if people are left wondering what's going to happen next, but it could go in any direction and I don't think anyone is thinking of a sequel.



Jordan agreed on the consensus of questions left unanswered, but he said when interpreting the ending that it was "all about perspective."


So what do you think? Have you seen it? Think they should leave it be? Sequel or no sequel? Sound off below!

I will never understand why people feel the need to get answers to every question that pops into their mind while watching a movie.. I like contemplating :)

IDEA STORY FOR A SEQUEL TO CHRONICLE:

CASEY LETTER (MATT'S INTEREST AND FILMOGRAPHER) IS OBSESSED IN FIGURING OUT WHAT HAPPENED AND DECIDES TO MAKE A DOCUMENTARY CHRONICLING THE EVENTS OF THE NIGHT ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE. WHILE COLLECTING SOME FOOTAGE FOR EDITING INTO HER PEICE SHE SEE'S A HOODED FIGURE OVER ANDREW DETMER GRAVE SITE, SHE CONFRONTS HIM AND IT'S MATT SAYING HE HAS RETURNED BECAUSE HE BELIEVES BECAUSE OTHER ASPECTS OF HIS ACQUIRED POWERS HAVE EMERGED, ANDREW AND STEVE WILL COME BACK. HE EXPLAINS TO CASEY THAT THE RADIATING METEOR THAT ALTERED THEM NOT ONLY AFFECTED THEIR MENTAL ABILITY BUT IT EVENTUALLY WOULD ALTER THEIR BODIES AS WELL, REGENERATION, SUPER STRENGTH INVULNERABILITY AND POSSIBLY IMMORTALITY. THE GROUND BREAKS OPEN AROUND STEVES GRAVE AND THEN ANDREWS AS IF MATT'S PRESENCE CUED THEIR REAWAKENING..ANDREW BELIEVING HE IS OVER SOCIETY'S RULES BECAUSE HE IS MORE POWERFUL THAN HUMAN GOES ON A RAMPAGE AND IT'S UP TO MATT AND STEVE TO STOP HIM.

@Gunsmith: No offence, but that's not very good (I wouldn't go see it if that was the basic plot). First, someone aready documented the events of that night. It was the movie. It also removes any emotional weight or consequences of the first movie. Andrew and Steve are dead. Let them stay that way.

I know from your 'complaints' on the other thread that this is actually the way you wanted this movie to go, but it didn't and you can't just erase the events of the movie to get the 3-way showdown in the sequel you were hoping for in this one.

However, the government had control over the hole - and got in to it before it closed (we know this because Andrew lost his camera in the hole, and couldn't retrieve it - but we see the footage, so it must have been recovered by the spooks), so any sequel must really start from there, imo.

If it actually needs a sequel. Not sure it does tbh.

Also, may I please ask that you don't use all capitals when typing? It makes it very difficult to read and frankly more often than not I wouldn't bother to read it at all.

Doesn't really bother me, but if you want people to actually read what you take the time to type, then make it easier for people to do so.

I WOULD LOVE A SEQUEL!! I want to see what happens to Matt and whether or not he becomes a super hero.
FriendlyNeighborhoodSpidey - 2/6/2012, 7:08 PM
BTW I wish Andrew didn't turn bad. His home life sucked!

I would defiantly love a sequel

woah what, he's british?

As much as I love the movie, I don't think a sequel will work well. Sure, there are many things to be explored (mainly 'the thing'), but I think they'll have to force several aspects in order to make it work, too.

Spoiler alerts, guys?!

@SMITH
Gonzo. I love it. I doubt it, but I love it.

I think a sequel is a long shot but looking at the box office returns, not entirely unrealistic. If their powers allow them regenerative abilities then it all works out.

I would be down for a sequel. That movie totally exceeded my expectations.

"I don't think anyone is thinking of a sequel."
In what way, shape or form is that teasing possible Sequel? [frick]ing stupid site.
GUNSMITH - 2/7/2012, 1:10 PM
JUST AN IDEA AND IVE BEEN "CAPS" EVER SINCE I WAS ON THIS SITE. AND LIKE "MATT" SAYS IN THE INTERVIEW THERES SEVERAL DIRECTIONS IT COULD GO.
GUNSMITH - 2/7/2012, 1:12 PM
@KEITH-EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO THEIR OWN OPINION, YOUR ENTITLED TO YOURS.
