Daily Video: Chronicle Viral Video

The found footage superhero movie “Chronicle” is aiming to be a big hit with audiences this year,and this new viral video set up by 20th Century Fox and Thinkmodo aims on pushing the limits of suspending your disbelief.

The video is of three custom RC planes shaped like people. The planes were launched over New York City to create the illusion of actual flying people.

“Since the three main characters of the movie have the ability to fly, we came up with the idea of staging a few ‘flying people’ sightings around NYC. We achieved that illusion by having 3 custom-made aircraft (which were shaped like human beings) fly above designated areas in NYC and NJ,” said Thinkmodo’s Michael Krivicka.

The effect is really amazing. I’m sure it would have been cool to see it in person.

You can watch the video below the post or at YouTube.

Chronicle comes to theaters Friday. Feb. 3.
