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.

A first look at Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson‘s Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver on the set of The Avengers: Age of Ultron reveals their costumes are kind of whatever. While Joss Whedon was smart to ditch Scarlet Witch’s red pleather bustier and headdress in favor of whatever he could find in the Buffy wardrobe storage unit, what is going on with Quicksilver? The combination of June Squibb’s hair, the Under Armour shirt, and black socks with sneakers is just no. Tony Stark is going to have a field day with this guy.

Also spotted on set was Ultron. I think. I’d expected he’d be constructed with more adamantium and less North Face outerwear.  We can assume that he’ll either be imbued with CGI or this is one of those pictures of celebrities doing a horrible job of disguising themselves from the paparazzi. Nice try, Alec Baldwin. (SuperHeroHype)

You’d think that Godzilla, the gigantic, nuclear lizard prone to leaving paths of destruction after stomping through major cities, would be considered high profile. According to the latest trailer, its really good at hiding in water and clouds and plumes of smoke. Like the Waldo of monsters.

This being the first trailer for Gareth Edwards‘s Godzilla, we see very little of the monster. We do, however, see mankind rallying to deal with the giant nuclear lizard threat. That effort somehow involves sky-diving at the monster while unarmed. I’m not sure how that subdues the beast.

Beyond that, we’re also treated to Godzilla‘s path of destruction and shocked reaction shots from Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and the only Japanese actor in Hollywood’s rolodex, Ken Watanabe.

We’ve heard rumors for the past few months that Joss Whedon and Marvel were aiming to get Elizabeth Olsen to join The Avengers: Age of Ultron once The Host and Hanna star Seahorse Ramen passed on the role of Scarlet Witch. Talking with The Wall Street Journal, Samuel L. Jackson revealed that, yeah, they’re going to do that.

Says Jackson, “I know we’re shooting in London, that James Spader is Ultron and going to be the bad guy, and that we added Ms. [Elizabeth] Olsen [who will play the Scarlet Witch], but I don’t know what she’s doing, if she’s on the inside or the outside. I haven’t seen a script.”

Jackson did not mention whether or not there were any roles available for Dave Coulier’s siblings.

After a few breakout hits at Sundance, everyone wants Elizabeth Olsen these days. So much so that she’s being stalked all over the place. In this trailer for Silent House, her dad is completely Facebook stalking her and then to make matters worse there’s someone or something inside her summer house trying to attack her.

This horror film is drawing rave reviews which means it must have a gimmick. Shot on the cheap as one continuous take, Silent House is a horror tale told in real time. Which means the viewer is essentially front row center as the main character spends the film trying to escape while more and more terrifying mysteries are brought into light. The film was sold to Lionsgate for $2 million after building good buzz at Sundance. That may not seem like a lot of profit in movie terms but keep in mind, they didn’t need to hire an editor.

The world is quickly learning that the Olsen twins have a cuter (and arguably more talented) younger sister who seems poised to overtake them in film cred. Which isn’t too hard to do considering the elder Olsens don’t really do the whole acting thing anymore, but still. Elizabeth Olsen is known primarily for appearing in indie flicks at this point, having emerged as a favorite at the Sundance Film Festival this past year. She’ll stick to aforementioned indie-stardom next year with a role in Josh Radnor‘s Liberal Arts alongside singer-boy Zac Efron.

Elizabeth Olsen made a big splash at this past year’s Sundance Film Festival with her appearance in Martha Marcy May Marlene. Now, those of us who have trouble breathing in high altitudes can see what all the hub-bub was about.

In this trailer, the newly-discovered credible Olsen seems really solid in the role of a girl who returns to her family after spending time with a cult. And John Hawkes is effortlessly creepy as the cult leader. I bet he watches his people poop. Seems like the type.

The film hits theaters on October 7th and Cannes before that. I have to say, Olsen nails this role of a confused girl freaking out for no apparent reason. It’s a flawless Mischa Barton impression.

If you were one of the several people who saw Buried last year, you’re probably looking forward to Rodrigo Cortes’ next movie, the supernatural thriller Red Lights, starring Elizabeth Olsen, Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy, and Sigourney Weaver. In it, De Niro plays a famous psychic, which explains why in this picture it looks like he’s standing on a stage of some kind. Perhaps the sunglasses are to hide his third eye? I don’t know how psychics work.

I love Buried, so I’m pretty excited about this, even though the plot synopsis from star Elizabeth Olsen makes it seem more conventional than that:

“Robert [De Niro] plays a world renowned psychic and Sigourney is a psychology professor, and I play her student… Cillian Murphy is my love interest, though that’s not a huge part of the story.”

You can see the larger picture down below. You can also print it out and take it to the mall so you can get a pair of sunglasses just like De Niro has. That’s what I’m going to do, anyway. (via /Film)

Sundance darlings Elizabeth Olsen and Josh Radnor are teaming up to take over the festival. “How I Met Your Mother‘s” Radnor struck quirky gold with his 2010 directorial entry Happythankyoumoreplease, and Olsen turned heads with her performance in Martha Marcy May Marlene.

Radnor will next direct Olsen and himself in Liberal Arts from his own script. Whoooaaaa-ho!! Slow down there. We’ve already got a James Franco. Radnor will play a 35-year old who can’t sever his ties to his college life and accept the responsibilities of adulthood. Olsen will play a teen-aged college student who he falls in love with over their mutual love of music. That’s quite an age difference. So, it’s like Garden State: The Super Creepy Version. Or rather, like a camera followed around Zach Braff during Sprin Break. (THR)

Elizabeth Olsen is currently getting great notices for her performance in the one-shot-only thriller Silent House at Sundance. Now it appears she’s starting to get some work thanks to her performance as well. She’s just been announced as joining Robert De Niro, Cillian Murphy, and Sigourney Weaver of Buried-director Rodrigo Cortés‘ thriller Red Light. The story is about “a psychologist (Weaver) and her assistant (Olsen) whose study of paranormal activity leads them to investigate a world-renowned psychic (De Niro).” Creepy — almost as creepy as living with the Olsen twi–ugh, never mind. The article points out that the role is a good fit for Olsen because she is currently studying psychology at NYU. Hey, I studied psychology too, can I play a psychologist’s assistant in a movie? Note: I’m not related to the Olsen twins.

Buried is one of my favorite movies of last year so I’m definitely excited to what see Cortés does next, lost Olsen triplet or no. (Collider)
