Even though this film seems to technically be about a teen sex pact, I really don’t think you can call it a “romp.” It’s more of a thinkpiece. In fact, it seems as though there’s very little fun about it, as Elizabeth Olsen seems to be channeling her morose Martha Marcy May Marlene character, and Dakota Fanning seems to be channeling that same character as well.

The trailer for Very Good Girls seems to be soundtracked by something of a female Elliott Smith, and there’s lots of running, crying and straight faces.

It could still very well be a great film, but if you’re looking for a female version of American Pie (and isn’t that all we’re really looking for in this life?), then keep browsing, Buster.

6 photosKeep Looking At New Pics From 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' Forever

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 starring Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart (whew) is either a movie you have no interest in seeing, or the Second Coming of Christ. Or maybe somewhere in between? Anyway, here’s the first trailer for the hotly anticipated sexy married vampires movie, and it’s got all the sad eyes and violin music you could ask for. Here’s an official plot synopsis, in case the trailer is not enough for your unquenchable thirst:

“After their wedding, Bella and Edward travel to Rio de Janeiro for their honeymoon, where they finally give in to their passions. Bella soon discovers she is pregnant, and during a nearly fatal childbirth, Edward finally fulfills her wish to become immortal.  But the arrival of their remarkable daughter, Renesmee, sets in motion a perilous chain of events that pits the Cullens and their allies against the Volturi, the fearsome council of vampire leaders, setting the stage for an all-out battle.”

Huh. Here’s hoping the fearsome council of vampire leaders forgot to bring their magic swords or whatever. The movie’s coming out on November 18, so try not to run afoul of any sexy vampires and/or werewolves before then.

Fanning Sisters To Dress Up As The Shaggs http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fanning-sisters-to-dress-up-as-the-shaggs/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fanning-sisters-to-dress-up-as-the-shaggs/#comments Fri, 04 Mar 2011 20:10:24 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=98714 2011 is the year of The Shagg!

Elle and Dakota Fanning might finally be working on a project together that capitalizes on their similar appearances. It’s almost as if they’re related or something. That project is a biopic of The Shaggs, a band made up of four ostensibly talentless sisters who started a band because their mother’s psychic told them to. They only released one album, but it had its fans, among them Frank Zappa, also known as that guy your older brother keeps trying to get you to listen to. But he’s so weird, man! The Fanning sisters are “in talks” to star, presumably as two of the members of the band. Or maybe they’ll star as all four, Winklevoss-style.

Anyway, expect to be hearing a lot about The Shaggs, as there’s going to be an off-Broadway musical about the band, too.  Let it be known that 2011 is the year of The Shagg! (via Vulture)

The toughest part of this job is having to periodically search for pictures of Dakota Fanning (although it’s perfectly innocent, it just feels dirty when pictures from The Runaways pop up). I do this at both the risk of prosecution and having to sleep on the couch for you, dear reader. So please remember my sacrifice as you read this article.

The elder Fanning is joining The Motel Life opposite Emile Hirsch and her sister’s Somewhere co-star Stephen Dorff. In the film, Hirsch and Dorff star at brothers on the run after a deadly hit and run. There’s no word on who Fanning will play but I’ll take a stab in the dark and say jailbait hitchhiker who divides the pair. Now please excuse me while I clear my recent browsing history. (Variety)

Dakota Fanning, girl, you been working way too hard lately. If you’re asking me (and you are), I think you should just get out and have a little fun, you know what I’m saying? Oh wait, it’s another movie:

“[Girls Night Out] has Fanning playing the teenaged British Princess Margaret and going out on the town with her sister (and current Queen) Elizabeth on V.E. Day in 1945. “

Well, I mean, that sounds like a lot of fun. You get to pretend to be a princess! Why are you crying? (via Collider)

Good News For DVD Vendors: Smell-A-Vision Developed For Theaters http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/good-news-for-dvd-vendors-smell-a-vision-developed-for-theaters/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/good-news-for-dvd-vendors-smell-a-vision-developed-for-theaters/#comments Mon, 17 Jan 2011 21:38:23 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=17379 A new odor-producing machine is targeted towards theaters as a completely new way to ruin moviegoing for everyone.

A new odor-producing machine is targeted towards theaters as a completely new way to ruin moviegoing for everyone. ScentSciences has introduced this $70 machine to work in tandem with ScentEditor software to provide appropriate smell emanations during movie screenings. I can’t wait to hear stories of directors having their creative vision undermined because the the pie smell in the third act was pecan and not rhubarb, which is what the studio promised.

While many scents would be contextual as part of the film, what’s more exciting is the prospect of stars getting editorial review of scents. For instance, Dakota Fanning would smell like a lemon poppy-seed muffin, Robert Pattinson would smell like a clove cigarette, and the entire theater would reek of beef jerky anytime Mickey Rourke came onscreen.

There are, thankfully, no plans to roll these things out in theaters yet, but given the smashing success of 3-D technology, it’s only a matter of time before smells are emitted and theaters hire gang members to punch the audience, all in the name of a more authentic cinematic experience. I’m just excited to see if studio execs think that Gene Hackman should smell like an old sweater or Worthers’ Originals hard candy. C’mon sweater! (Geekologie)

‘The Runaways’ Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-runaways-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-runaways-trailer/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 And that's how Cherie Currie died. A full trailer for The Runaways has been released, and don't worry, there's plenty of leather. After seeing the teaser, I wasn't very amped for this film, but the trailer I kinda likey. Kristen Stewart looks like she's just being her regular angsty self, but Dakota Fanning turns it up a notch or five. She must have been practicing her seductive looks in the mirror for weeks. It's hard to get those AND face painting down all before the movie goes in to production. Learning how to go down on Kristen Stewart is a whole different beast altogether. Check out the full trailer for The Runaways below.

It stars Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett and Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie of the band, you guessed it, The Runaways. They were kick-ass chicks who didn't take crap from anyone, and they demonstrated this attitude in the songs that they sang. Plus they smoked...a lot. Dangerous! The Runaways premieres at Sundance next month, then hits theaters in March. Watch the teaser for the coming-of-age-biopic of the female rock band below.
