Reality Check is a 2015 American traditionally animated 3D science fiction action comedy film produced by TjsWorld2011 Pictures and distributed by 20th Century Fox. In the film, high school students Adam, David and Harris are told by their classmate that the new student has psychic abilities, and Adam decides to try and find out if it's true or not by heading over to the Library of Congress in Washington, DC to find the tape of how it happened. But when there appears to be no evidence, Adam decides to find out if she's a real psychopath or not, but it proves to be a very dangerous road.
The film combines the styles of basic filming and found footage and is described by its director TjsWorld2011 as a mashup of the films Chronicle and Earth to Echo. It is the fourth film by TjsWorld2011 Pictures to be distributed by Fox after the films Operation BLUE, PuffRuff School: The Movie, and Planet Chasers. The film stars Jace Norman of the Nickelodeon television series Henry Danger, Troy Baker of Marvel's Avengers Assemble and NovaStar302601. It was released in theatres and in RealD 3D on July 17, 2015 and recieved mostly positive reviews from critics.
On his way to school on the second day of the school year, Adam McCallister talks to his mother about how he hopes nothing will go wrong during the year.
