I had no idea this release was taking place next year. I didn’t even know they were considering screening this really attractive story called Strayer’s Chronicle. Trailer feels to me a little rushed since we are almost a year away from its release. But that doesn’t prevent us from sharing it and waiting for the date impatiently.
If you enjoy reading Japanese novels, then you might know this story. Specially if you like science fiction ones. Also, if you enjoy psychological thrillers. It has a mixture of it all and it gathers three great young actors for the main roles.
Synopsis of Strayer’s Chronicle Japanese Movie

It’s not the first time we get to watch a special powers people movie. There are too many exponents of this all over the world. But the fact that it’s mixed with a highly psychological side path might give this story an interesting twist.
This production will be released next year. So, basically we will have to wait a lot before being able to watch it. In the meantime, here’s the trailer!
