Paramount Pictures has released a new Project Almanac trailer and poster for director Dean Israelite’s upcoming time travel film. Formerly titled Welcome to Yesterday, the story revolves around a group of teens who construct a working time machine and are faced with unexpected complications. Even though this film has been delayed for a while, it looks really good. The jokes in the trailer are funny, and then when it gets serious, the stakes are high. The buzz on the movie is positive, and it could end up being the next Chronicle (i.e. it’s all fun and games until teenagers irresponsibly use their awesome power).
