YMMV: Chronicle

  • Sleeper Hit: The film had a modest budget for it's type and didn't have a whole lot of advertising, and was even dumped into theaters in January on Super Bowl weekend, but the positive reception and word-of-mouth not only helped make it a big hit, but also gave some of the relatively then-unknown cast and crew their big break and are now currently involved with various future Hollywood productions. (For example, the aforementioned casting of Dane DeHaan in the new Spider-Man sequel.)
