You Probably Had No Idea That ‘Matilda’ Was The Same Movie As ‘Chronicle’

It’s no secret that Hollywood has a reliable list of themes when it comes to making movies: fish out of water, unlikely duo, Odysseyan journey, etc. But sometimes, it goes above and beyond just sharing a theme. YouTube’s CinemaSins has an in-depth look at some striking similarities between the 1996 magical child abuse tale Matilda starring Mara Wilson and the 2012 found footage-style sci-fi superpower flick Chronicle. I hope this means that Max Landis is working on a Broadway musical version of Chronicle now because as Matilda proved, it totally works.
