* CaliforniaDoubling: [[UsefulNotes/SouthAfrica Cape Town]] for UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}}.



* MissingTrailerScene: A couple of scenes that appear in the trailers did not show up in the theatrical version, though they are restored in the extended cut.



* NotUsingTheZWord: The kids never compare themselves to, say, [[{{Spiderman}} Peter Parker]] or the ComicBook/FantasticFour, and no one uses the words "superpower" or "superhero", as if comic books simply don't exist in this universe. [[FridgeBrilliance Considering]] the boys have to look up "telekinesis" in the dictionary before they can put a name on "the thing we can do where we move stuff with our minds", this could be the case.

''Chronicle'' is a 2012 [[FoundFootageFilms found footage]] super-power action film directed by Josh Trank and written by Creator/MaxLandis focusing on three teenage boys who discover a mysterious object in a cave on the outskirts of town. They soon discover that exposure to the object has granted each of them [[MindOverMatter telekinetic abilities]]. As they practice with their abilities, they get stronger with them, and learn to [[FlyingBrick fly and protect themselves from harm]]. They don't exactly become heroic pillars of justice and instead use their powers for random pranks and goofing around, as teen boys do.
