Originally titled Welcome to Yesterday – a better name in my opinion – the latest trailer for Project Almanac has arrived courtesy of Paramount Pictures. This full-length trailer puts it all out on the line, showing us what has been building up since its push back from its previously intended release date back in February. Set for a January release next year, you can find the new trailer for Project Almanac after the break.
I’m digging what they’re throwing down. There is a decent amount thrown at us in the trailer, but just enough not to give too much away. We see our time travelers having fun, as anyone would, but then the repercussions of their actions catch up to them. I like the sci-fi thriller aspect of Project Almanac and can’t wait to see if first time director Dean Israelite and first time screenwriters Andrew Stark and Jason Pagan can pull off a big “W” here.
Delays, initially, are never a good sign for a film. It could mean that something wasn’t working with test audiences and they needed to rework the film; Paramount might not have had any confidence in the film based on the fact Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit bombed and Noah would be releasing in March; or perhaps another factor. Project Almanac was put on hold 24 days before its release without any word as to why.
Well now, folks like me who had highly anticipated this found footage, time travel extravaganza can rest at ease and look forward to its release. Although January is typically a dumping ground for lesser products from studios, big blockbusters were spread pretty evenly throughout this year and 2015 looks fairly similar. Maybe we’ll have our first big hit on our hands?
