Korea Box Office: ‘Maze Runner’ Heads Slow Weekend

29 September 2014 2:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Seoul — Hollywood titles “The Maze Runner” and “Begin Again” continued to hold the top spots in another low key weekend at the Korean box office.

The Maze Runner,” which opened on Sept. 18, added Us$4.32 million (Krw 4.56 billion), taking its cumulative total to Us$11.64 million (Krw 12.3 billion).

The box office popularity of the 20th Century Fox Korea title is being helped by the novel on which the film is based, becoming a bestseller in Korea, as well as the casting of Korean-born actor, Lee Ki-hong.  

Begin Again,” still in second place in its seventh week of release, added Us$21.13 million for a cumulative Us$ 21.9 million (Krw 23.1 billion).

Lotte Entertainment’s gambling actioner “Tazza 2,” which opened on Sept. 3, dropped 41% but managed to hold onto third place. It added only Us$1.04 million (Krw 1.10 billion) for a cumulative total of Us$29.7 million (Krw 31.3 billion).

U.S. new release, “Very Good Girls” entered the box office chart at number four, »

Very Good Girls – The Blu Review

9 September 2014 7:13 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Acute portrayals and nice performances by leads Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen as best friends who pledge to lose their virginity before college, helps this mildly racy but ultimately innocuous teen sex film Very Good Girls stay a step or two above the exploitative premise to emerge as something almost worthwhile. Boyd Holbrook also gives more than the role calls for as the handsome street artist who becomes their would-be conquest. His role is believable and even brings out Fanning’s performance, delivering something that could have been icky, but remains tender and even a tad affecting. Olsen is good as well, but Fanning’s always seemed a lightweight before.

The problem with Very Good Girls (besides the 25-year old Ms. Olsen being far too old for this role) is that, despite the sexually tinged subject matter, the script is never fleshed out beyond what’s needed to service the plot. »

Second Opinion – Night Moves (2013)

2 September 2014 6:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Night Moves, 2013.

Directed by Kelly Reichardt.

Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard, Alia Shawkat, Logan Miller, Kai Lennox, Katherine Waterston and James LeGros.

Synopsis:

Three radical environmentalists look to execute the protest of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam.

An eco-terrorism story on the surface, Night Moves sees the quiet, solemn Josh (Jesse Eisenberg) working on an organic farm when he meets Dana (Dakota Fanning), an environmentalist in a small countryside town close to him. Soon enough, the two of them are off in a pick-up truck, en route to meet up with Harmon (Peter Sarsgaard), a loner across state who lives in the midst of the wilderness. But quite why the three of them have now met up together is still somewhat of a mystery, as their soon-to-be-revealed intentions have not yet presented themselves. Such is the way the story unravels, director Kelly Reichardt keeps us »

Dakota Fanning Joins Ewan McGregor in 'American Pastoral'

6 August 2014 12:03 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the addition of Jennifer Connelly last week, Lakeshore Entertainment has brought on Dakota Fanning to star in American Pastoral.

Based on Philip Roth's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, American Pastoral follows Seymour "Swede" Levov (Ewan McGregor), a former high school athletic legend who wound up marrying the girl of his dreams Dawn (Jennifer Connelly) and inheriting his father's successful business. His picture-perfect life is torn apart when his daughter Merry (Dakota Fanning) becomes a revolutionary and commits a deadly act of terrorism during the Vietman War.

Phillip Noyce (The Giver) is directing from an adapted screenplay by John Romano (The Lincoln Lawyer), with Lakeshore's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi producing.

Here's what Lakeshore president Gary Lucchesi had to say about the casting in a statement.

"The role of Merry is an extremely complex part, and I believe that Dakota Fanning will break our hearts with her performance."

Production is scheduled »

Liam Neeson Will Run All Night In April 2015

6 August 2014 6:14 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the Wachowskis’ space epic Jupiter Ascending was taken off the summer calendar and slotted for next February, we had a feeling that the shift might mess up Warner Bros.’ previously laid plans for early 2015. Now, the studio has officially announced what it’s changing – the Liam Neeson actioner Run All Night has been moved from February 6th (when Jupiter will now open) to April 17th next year.

Even if effects work hadn’t caused Warner Bros. to delay Jupiter, it was possible Run All Night still would have ended up moving forward. After all, Fox is releasing Taken 3, also with Neeson, next January.

Run All Night will mark Neeson’s third collaboration with Unknown and Non-Stop director Jaume Collet-Serra. Brad Inglesby (Out of the Furnace) penned the script, which centers on an aging hitman (Neeson) who is forced to go up against his brutal, sadistic former employer (Ed Harris »

'Very Good Girls' Director Naomi Foner on First Times and Lessons Learned

27 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Very Good Girls.] Your first time is often complicated, messy and awkward. At least that was the case for Oscar-nominated screenwriter Naomi Foner and Dakota Fanning, who explore virgin territory in the indie Very Good Girls, which is now in theaters. Foner, who's scripted such films as Running on Empty and Losing Isaiah — and is also Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal's mom — makes her directorial debut with the film, about two teenage best friends, Lilly (Fanning) and Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen), who make a pact to lose their virginity the summer after high school.

Very Good Girls Is a Smart Movie With a Dumb Love Triangle

25 July 2014 12:19 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Very Good Girls is either a smart movie about families or a dumb movie about teenagers. Or maybe it’s a little of both. It’s allegedly about two Brooklyn teens (played by Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen) trying to lose their virginity one summer, but it’s really about the bonds of family and friendship. I know, I know — that sounds like a load of hooey, but Naomi Foner’s film really does wear its subtext on its sleeve. It’s well acted and psychologically acute, even if what’s actually happening onscreen often feels a lot less interesting than what’s clearly boiling beneath the film’s surface.Lilly (Fanning) and Gerri (Olsen) are inseparable best friends growing up in Ditmas Park, holding the rest of the world with a sort of playful but snotty disregard. They like to ride their bikes out to Brighton Beach and mock the people around them. »

The Boyfriend Experience: Foner’s Directorial Debut a Derivative Shard

Screenwriter Naomi Foner makes her directorial debut with Very Good Girls, though her preceding reputation makes this sedimentary, uninspired film even more surprising. Mother of actors Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Foner penned several of ex-husband Stephen Gyllenhaal’s more notable titles, such as Losing Isaiah (1995) and A Dangerous Woman (1993). Considering the authoritative, complicated, and resilient female characters portrayed famously by the likes of Jessica Lange, Halle Berry, and Debra Winger, this trifling and tedious story of a late adolescent friendship tested by mutual attraction to the same boy seems born from the pen of a novice writing about her only familiar focal point,

In New York City during their last summer before going away to college, best friends Lilly (Dakota Fanning) and Gerri (Elizabeth Olsen) vow to lose their virginity. Gerri has her eyes set on David (Boyd Holbrook), who »

Very Good Girls Review

24 July 2014 8:42 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Very Good Girls is a coming-of-age story starring two of the most talented young actresses out there today, so why is it so very hard to like? Almost nothing works in this limp excuse for a drama, from the contrived story to the clichéd characters to the awkward costume design. Even Elizabeth Olsen, horribly miscast, and Dakota Fanning, so vacant she appears translucent, can’t keep such a leaky vessel afloat.

Among Very Good Girls‘ many sins, perhaps the most glaring is that it feels like a movie written for teenagers by an adult who knows nothing about them. In the very first scene, high school seniors and lifelong friends Lilly (Fanning) and Gerri (Olsen) strip down at a public beach in broad daylight and run naked into the waves. I don’t know why. I don’t think writer-director Naomi Foner knows why. The film is filled with bizarre decisions like that, »

Watch: Elizabeth Olsen Sings Rilo Kiley's "Go Ahead" In Clip From 'Very Good Girls'

23 July 2014 2:02 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's a good month to be a Jenny Lewis fan. The actress turned singer has a new album out next week, Voyager, and the first video featured none other than Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson (watch it here). And already on VOD, and opening in theatres this weekend, is the indie "Very Good Girls," starring Elizabeth Olsen and Dakota Fanning, and featuring an original score by Lewis. In addition, the musician taught Olsen how to play "Go Ahead" by her former band Rilo Kiley for the film, and this new clip shows how it turned out. "[Elizabeth Olsen] plays a young songwriter, so I chose a very old Rilo Kiley song for her to sing, because it felt conceivable that a young artist like her would write it," Lewis told Elle. "My friend Todd gave her guitar lessons, and she picked it up so fast! She’s a better finger-picker than I am now. »
