Go back in time with the found footage time travel flick Welcome To Yesterday!

12.17.2013

Fans of Josh Trank's CHRONICLE will no doubt get a kick out of the latest entry in the found-footage genre, WELCOME TO YESTERDAY, which deviates from monsters, aliens, and superpowers to focus instead on time travel. Much like CHRONICLE, the films has a group of kids getting their hands on power they don't quite understand (or respect) and forcing them to right the wrongs they commit as a result. It looks like a lot of fun and it seems like the filmmakers have explored the story in a cool "Sound of Thunder" kind of way, which should make for some good thrills.

Take a look:

Here's the synopsis:

A group of teens embark on an adventure when they discover secret plans to build a time machine.

I'm a fan of the found footage genre when it's brining something new to the table. I think it's thus far proven to have staying power as we're fascinated by the "realistic" aspect of it, particularly as we document our own lives more and more in this respect. The time travel slant is a strong angle, so hopefully the filmmakers will exploit it to its full potential. So far, I'm intrigued.

WELCOME TO YESTERDAY opens on February 28, 2014.

I love the idea, just like I did with CHRONICLE. I just hate that it has to be found footage. I hate the shakiness and I just dont buy, that in the middle of all this chaos, someone would still be holding a fucking camera, tape rcording themselves. It just seems kind of ludicrous.

What's the name of that movie????

I saw the trailer here on Joblo within the past year....about kids who go to a party and see doubles of themselves at the party, I think it had to do with time travel....it was a low budget flick, looked really good but I forget the name....

Eh..

"Chronicle" was a great spin on the genre because of the interesting innovations it took with the cinematography. Plus, the performances, especially Dehan, made it something special. This looks just very MTV.

I will watch any time travel film. This film will be no exception. However from this trailer it looks like a less than average time travel film.

This has an enormous amount of potential which sadly will be wasted due to the incompetency of the director.

Between the idea of another found footage movie and your stupid fucking media player. I have no interest in even watching this trailer.

Thanks for that constructive feedback, dkev. It's always good when someone comments on a story without actually reading or watching the content.
