Dakota Fanning And Elizabeth Olsen Make A Pact To Lose Their Virginity (Not With Each Other) In 'Very Good Girls'

Am I the only person who wasn't part of a virginity-losing pact in high school? 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.

Elizabeth Olsen FREAKS OUT In 'Martha Marcy May Marlene' Trailer

She does a flawless Mischa Barton. 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.


Elizabeth Olsen Has A Crappy Vacation In 'Silent House' Trailer

Rest and relaxation my foot. 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.


Get A Taste Of The Trent Reznor/Atticus Ross Soundtrack For 'Gone Girl'

This might surprise you, but it's...haunting and sparse. (GASP!) The good news: We've got a YouTube clip of a sample of the Trent Reznor-composed soundtrack for David Fincher's mystery Gone Girl. The bad news: You could probably guess what it sounds like. I guess that's not bad news per se, because the Reznor style works pretty well with Fincher's noir components, but it's not revolutionary or anything. Take a listen and hear for yourself. It's always nice ambient music, and it could take on a new life in the context of the film (it is a soundtrack after all), so let's not get bent out of shape. We'll just go to our therapist and talk our way through this. Again.


Steve Carell Says Farewell To The Fans

He's gone. He's really gone. Last night, Steve Carell raided the supply closet and left Scranton for greener pastures. Before leaving the corporate world, though, he filmed his exit interview with "Office" co-star Angela Kinsey. In the video, he talks about his favorite show moments  and what the characters and the actors who portray them have meant to him over the past seven years. He also takes a moment to say goodbye to his fans and acknowledge that he's "made an enormous mistake." It's sad to see him go but it's important we all put on a brave face and show him what big boys and girls we can be. No crying. And if any of us do, let's pretend that we got stung by a hornet. Just a really fast one that moved too fast for everyone to see because it is so fast, you see. One of those super hornets. I think it migrated up here from Mexico. (NBC)


Watch An Entire North Dakota Newscast Starring...Ron Burgundy

It doesn't have a lot of Burgundy, but the Burgundy it does have is gold. Ron Burgundy crashed a newscast for Bismarck, ND last night, and while he only got about 90 seconds of spotlight during the 30-minute newscast, it was pretty damn fun. While he played the whole thing pretty aloof, without being too hammy, his "I have no idea," when asked a question going to commercial stuck out as the funniest bit to me. His co-anchor, regular Amber Schatz, had a hard time keeping it together during the entirety of the broadcast, though it's not clear if her amusement was rom Burgundy, or the painfully funny banality of North Dakota news. Anyway, take a look. It's not like you don't have a free half-hour today.


Adrien Brody Channels His Inner Criss Angel In History Channel's 'Houdini' Trailer

Houdini was the original Mindfreak, only with fewer wallet chains. The History Channel, not be outshined by its peers, offering up programs on bird murderers, fat children in pageants, and people forced to pawn things, has decided to compete using the high(er) road. Biopics with somewhat big stars attached. In this case, angular man Adrien Brody will be playing the iconic showman. This time up, we're getting treated to the life of Harry Houdini, the only magician in history who didn't rely on glitter and lasers to get his point across. Fortunately, Harry Houdini's work was pretty theatrical, so this could translate better to television than a guy who keeps asking "Is this your card?" and tries to convince you that he just made you float. Houdini will be a two-part series airing on September 1 and 2 this fall. (Deadline)


'Smashed' Trailer: Aaron Paul And Mary Elizabeth Winstead Get Wastypants

Featuring Nick Offerman. Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been getting rave reviews for her performance in Smashed. Now having viewed the trailer, I can I see why. Look at her drinking in the shower and riding bikes and playing pool. She's the perfect girl! Until she decides to throw all of that away like a fool. And that's the plot of Smashed. Winstead and Aaron Paul redefine their relationship when they agree to give up drinking and drugging and, in her case, make-up as well.


E.T. Not All That Adorable In New Fan Trailer For ‘E.T-X’

They say hindsight is 20-20, and in hindsight, that E.T. was a real bastard. Or so posits this fan-made trailer. They say hindsight is 20-20, and in hindsight, that E.T. was a real bastard. Or so posits this fan-made trailer in which the original E.T. was actually a scouting mission so that, decades later, the aliens can invade and have their way with us. Using piecemeal clips from such gems as Deep Impact and The Siege, the creators of this trailer have created a world in which millions of E.T.'s with telescoping necks feast on humans. After about four minutes in, it's pretty clear that this may have been a better idea on paper than in practice. The creators of this clip did a pretty good job with the effects, juxtaposing E.T., Reese's Pieces, and even a grown-up Henry Thomas (Elliott). However, nothing about this really reads as funny or clever, but rather simply as a project that people put a lot of time into and adequately deliver. Yup, it's that much fun. The six-minute runtime is a little tedious, as well. I won't spoil the one good surprise in the clip. Just kidding. Of course I will. Deep Impact Morgan Freeman gets his head bitten off by an evil E.T. at 4:45. (Movie Line)
