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.

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 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.


'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.

'The Thing' Trailer Looks Like A Thing

You didn't expect it to be better than the original, did you? [post-album postid="220329" item="5"] Universal has dropped the trailer for the remake of The Thing. Why they would remake a classic horror film such as John Carpenter's The Thing (and call it a prequel), I have no idea. There is no way it could improve upon the original, which means they're just setting themselves up for failure. The trailer doesn't look awful by any means, it just looks meh. Mary Elizabeth Winstead leads a cast that includes Joel Edgerton and Eric Christian Olsen. Or at least that's who they say they are. Who knows with this THING out there. Side note: why must all horror trailers end with a character holding his or her breath, hoping that a creature/killer doesn't strike from around the corner, and then a creature/killer strikes from around the corner?


Trailer Shows Mankind Summoning Courage To Stop 'Godzilla' From Destroying Our Stuff

We don't come to Monster Island and smash up your shit. 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.


MSNBC Learned Putting News Team In Sombreros, Drinking Tequila, For Cinco de Mayo Means You Have To Apologize For It 3 Months Later

You should see what they did on April 20th. The discussion of representing other ethnicities and the boundaries of good taste will always be a source of much contention between people, but I think that we can all agree that we don't want to see our white newscasters on MSNBC in sombreros, drinking fake tequila to "celebrate" Cinco de Mayo. Because it's insensitive? Maybe. Because it's really, stupid and unprofessional? Yeah. Definitely that one. On the Way Too Early show (I smell a Pulitzer based on the name alone), host Thomas Roberts shared the origins of the holiday (understandable) while his PRODUCER, ambled around in a big hat with a flask of what we all assume is tequila. Dude, a margarita is far less offensive. Anyway, because it takes 90-120 days to apologize for something stupid and indefensible, MSNBC is just now getting their "I'm sorry"s out to an association of Hispanic journalists through an appearance by the network president at their annual convention. They should also direct it to anyone with good taste who just wants to watch the news in the morning. (Deadline)


Those Mayans Were Totally Right: 'This Is The End' Preview

We all laughed at the Mayan prediction that the world would come to an end on this date, but now as I type this from the limbo state of eternal damnation I can see that maybe we should have listened better. Same in the case of Seth Rogen and his pals. This preview from next year's This Is The End shows that they were all just hanging out having an Apatow buddies party when suddenly the world ended and now both Michael Cera and David Krumholtz are dead. Now we'll never get a Numb3rs reunion special. Oh God, has anyone checked in on Rob Morrow yet?!!
