Cinema has a long tradition of films about parties getting out of hand, but Project X looks like it’s going to take things up a notch. Produced by Hangover helmer Todd Phillips and shot in a pseudo-documentary style, the film follows three seemingly anonymous high school seniors as they attempt to finally make a name for themselves. Their idea is innocent enough: throw a party that no one will forget… but nothing could prepare them for this party. Word spreads quickly as dreams are ruined, records are blemished and legends are born. The film is due out in the UK on March 2nd.
Teenagers waiting until their parents are away to stage a huge party is a bit of a classic both in the movies and in real life. Project X wants to tap into a bit of that with the story of three high school seniors who throw a birthday party to make a name for themselves. As the night progresses, things spiral out of control as word of the party spreads. The film should be in cinemas next spring.
