The Last of Robin Hood

Errol Flynn will always be remembered as a silver screen icon, but the latest biopic about him is more interested in what happened after he reached the peak of his career.

Directed by Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland, The Last of Robin Hood follows the roguish hero (played here by Kevin Kline) in his last years. He meets a teenaged starlet (Dakota Fanning) and embarks an affair that threatens to destroy him. Watch the first The Last of Robin Hood trailer after the jump.

Night Moves trailer

Following the release of an international promo last week, a second Night Moves trailer has been released, this time for the U.S. market. The Kelly Reichardt-directed thriller stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, and Peter Sarsgaard as a trio of radical environmentalists who join forces to blow up a dam.

Though all three profess to live by the ideals that led them to this extremist act in the first place, it’s not long before paranoia, doubt, and distrust set in. Watch the video after the jump.

Night Moves trailer

Following well-received debuts at Toronto and Venice last fall, Kelly Reichardt‘s Night Moves is now gearing up for a theatrical release. The thriller stars Jesse Eisenberg and Dakota Fanning as a couple of young environmentalists who go a little extreme for their cause — like, blowing up a dam extreme — and then have to deal with the consequences. Peter Sarsgaard also stars, as explosives expert who’s also involved in the plot.

The first Night Moves trailer has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.

Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) is putting together a new film based on Stephen King‘s debut novel Carrie. Brian De Palma’s movie starring Sissy Spacek and John Travolta remains one of De Palma’s most entertaining films, packed as it is with over-the-top characterization and De Palma’s trademark love of split-screen imagery. So my first reaction to hearing about another new Carrie (this isn’t the first remake of the story) is ‘why?’ But having a female director is one way to make this seem like a worthwhile endeavor.

Now we’ve got the first indications of potential casting, as info has emerged about two possible choices to play the adolescent telekinetic Carrie White: 15-year-old Chloë Moretz (Kick-Ass, Dark Shadows) and 24-year-old Haley Bennett (Terrence Malick’s film formerly called Lawless).

Update: Deadline says that Moretz has been offered the role, and that after testing last weekend, she more or less got the job immediately.

Jeremy Irvine was a total unknown when Steven Spielberg plucked him from hundreds of aspiring young actors to lead the World War II drama War Horse, but he’s wasted no time booking subsequent roles to boost his profile. In his first post-War Horse project, Ol Parker‘s Now is Good, he romances a cancer-stricken Dakota Fanning as she attempts to seize what’s left of her days.

Oh, and did I mention she has a British accent? That’s the other reason to check out this trailer, which you can find after the jump.

I suppose it’s not really correct to call Anton Yelchin and Dakota Fanning up-and-comers, seeing as each of them has been in the industry for over a decade. But as they transition into increasingly grown-up roles, it still feels like we’re seeing the emergence of pair of promising young actors. Elizabeth Olsen, on the other hand, is about as fresh-faced as they come. Last year’s Sundance hits Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene were her first real roles, aside from a tiny part in her sisters’ How the West Was Fun way back in 1994.

The three are now in final talks to star in Very Good Girls, from another not-quite newcomer, Naomi Foner. Though Foner’s been working as a writer and producer since the ’70s, the upcoming project will mark her directorial debut. More details after the jump.

Almost three years back, Emma Thompson and her husband Greg Wise starting to drop info about a script they’d written called Effie, which would follow Victorian art critic, social thinker and poet John Ruskin, who had a strange and ultimately disastrous marriage to a woman named Euphemia ‘Effie’ Gray. Ruskin couldn’t consummate the marriage, and Effie finally fell for Ruskin’s protege John Everett Millais.

A few different actresses have been attached or rumored for the role of Effie Gray, most notably Carey Mulligan and Saoirse Ronan. Now the film is finally coming together with Richard Laxton (An Englishman in New York) directing and Dakota Fanning playing Effie. Read More »
