Found Footage Comedy 'Project X' Gets a New Poster and Trailer

The words "found footage" immediately make one think of cheap horror films, most of which are pretty terrible.  The faux-documentary approach has been used almost exclusively for superntural-style thrillers, but Project X applies the found footage gimmick to a raucous teen comedy, and the results look most intriguing.  The film, produced by action impresario Joel Silver and The Hangover, Old School, and Road Trip director Todd Phillips, follows a trio of high school guys who throw a party that becomes an out-of-control epic involving cars being driven into pools, a grown adult punching a kid, and what appears to be a full-scale riot.  All these things and more you'll see in the new Project X trailer, which hit today, accompanied by a shiny new one sheet.

The trailer is available in the highest definition at Apple, where it debuted, but our embed is courtesy of Coming Soon.

In case you're wondering, the MPAA gave Project X  an R rating, for "crude and sexual content throughout, nudity, drugs, drinking, pervasive language, reckless behavior and mayhem - all involving teens."  Promising.  Sign me up for the juvenile ridiculousness.  Here's the poster, thanks to IMP Awards.

The film is the directorial debut of Nima Nourizadeh, who was working from a screenplay by Matt Drake and Michael Bacall.  Bacall, an actor who played a small role in Inglourious Basterds, also served as co-writer on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and the upcoming 21 Jump Street, which has been getting crazy-enthusiastic notices from the few who've seen it.

Project X's cast includes Thomas Mann, Oliver Cooper, Alexis Knapp, Sam Lant, Jonathan Daniel Brown, Nichole Bloom, and Miles Teller, who held it down with aplomb as Willard in that Footloose remake.  The film hits theaters on March 2nd.
