Another attempt by Michael Bay (Transformers: Age Of Extinction) and his Platinum Dunes team to extend their reach beyond simply blood and horror, Project Almanac is squarely in the teen science fiction adventure genre with some time travel drama at its core.
Presented in a semi-found footage style, the film focuses on a group of friends who stumble upon plans to build a time machine. And because no-one who has ever had access to one of those things in movies can resist tinkering with the past, they eschew trying to stop World War II and instead begin trying to sort out mistakes. Soon, they're manipulating things even further for their own gain, but naturally come to realise that time travelling hijinks carry a high price.
Directed by Dean Israelite (cousin of Battle Los Angeles' Jonathan Liebesman), the film features Jonny Weston (Chasing Mavericks), Amy Landecker (A Serious Man), Sofia Black-D'Elia (The Immigrant), Gary Grubbs (Battleship) and Virginia Gardner (The Goldbergs).
Having made it through a process that has seen it previously titled Almanac, Welcome To Yesterday and Cinema One and watch more than one release date come and go, Project Almanac is finally set to hit our screens on 6 February.
