Is no genre safe from the found footage craze? Troll hunting, exorcisms, superheroes, paranormal activities and now…parties? That’s right; Todd Phillips, director of The Hangover and The Hangover: Part II is producer of Project X, a film that up until this point has been surrounded in complete secrecy. The film is apparently a found footage party film that follows some dweeb as he makes a name for himself with the ladies amongst other peers. It looks like something that The Hangover crowd will eat up without a doubt while the rest of us sit in silence.
I’m generally easily pleased with the found footage genre, but even this one looks like its over stepping it’s boundaries. Every single person in the trailer looks like a pretty douchebag that doesn’t deserve any more attention than they probably already get at high school or college. I’ll see the film out of curiosity, but that’s about it.
Project X opens in theaters on March 2nd, 2012.
