Todd Phillips, the man behind THE HANGOVER and OLD SCHOOL, is bringing us another raucous good time. Only now the party looks like it really gets out of control. And you thought losing a groom was bad.
PROJECT X, a new found-footage film from director Nima Nourizadeh, is produced by Phillips and visits some of his standard themes: friendship, parties, drinking. However, being a found-footage film, there has to be something dark added to the mix. If the end of this new trailer is any indication, the festivities here get out of hand and things escalade into what looks like a riot. Ah, high school!
The film is filled with a bunch of unknown actors, which will lend to its youthful realism. I’m curious to see how dark PROJECT X gets and how close it sticks to reality. It’ll be nice to watch a found-footage movie that doesn’t involve aliens or ghosts for once.
PROJECT X opens March 2.
3 high school seniors throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads.
