From producer Todd Phillips, the director of The Hangover, party film Project X follows three seemingly anonymous high school seniors as they attempt to finally make a name for themselves.
After deciding to throw a party that no one will ever forget, nothing can prepare them for the night ahead. As word of the party quickly spreads and the night progresses, things begin to spiral out of control, leaving dreams ruined, records blemished and legends born.
Shot in the found-footage format seen in recent flicks Chronicle and Paranormal Activity 3, this teenage party film is directed by newcomer Nima Nourizadeh and features an ensemble of unknown actors.
What promises to provide a hilarious insight into a new concept of film-making, Project X comes with its warnings, and will be seen as a precaution to parents and police everywhere.
