Project X is an American comedy film directed by Nima Nourizadeh and written by Michael Bacall and Matt Drake based on a story by Bacall, and produced by director Todd Phillips.
The film follows three friends -- Thomas (Thomas Mann), Costa (Oliver Cooper), and J.B. (Jonathan Daniel Brown) -- who try to gain popularity by throwing a party, a plan that gets out of control.
A nationwide open casting call was used to find fresh faces. Filming took place on sets in the foothill community of Pasadena, a suburb of greater Los Angeles over five weeks on a $12,000,000 budget.
The film is presented as a found footage home video from the perspective of an attendee using a camera to document the night's events.
Some critics compared it to the old comedy Animal House. Following its release, incidents of large-scale parties blamed or referenced blamed the film as an inspiration.
