‘Teen Spirit’ Trailer: Elle Fanning Becomes a Pop Star

Teen Spirit trailer

Our culture loves rags-to-riches stories about normal people who perform under extraordinary circumstances and become superstars – we’ve seen it in everything from Rocky to A Star is Born. It’s a time-honored premise, so it’s no surprise that another film has come along to put its own spin on that idea.

Teen Spirit is the directorial debut of actor Max Minghella, who has appeared in shows like The Handmaid’s Tale and movies like The Social Network. Elle Fanning (Super 8, I Think We’re Alone Now) leads the cast as a teenager who enters an international singing competition to escape her past. Check out the trailer below.

Reed Morano Interview

I Think We’re Alone Now has been in limited release since last weekend, but the rest of the country will get a chance in the coming weeks as the film expands to more theaters. However, fans of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, actress Elle Fanning and/or post-apocalyptic movies may be surprised by the tone director Reed Morano struck with her Sundance selected feature.

Morano has been an acclaimed cinematographer of movies like Frozen River and Beyonce’s Lemonade. She’s won acclaim as a director for the pilot that launched The Handmaid’s Tale into a Hulu phenomenon, so there’s been a lot of anticipation for her follow up feature. Morano spoke with /Film by phone about what drew her to Mike Madowsky’s script for I Think We’re Alone Now and why she was never, ever going to use the pop song of the same name in the film.

Teen Spirit Review - Elle Fanning

If A Star is Born was the folk song of the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, a familiar tune brilliantly rendered by cover artist Bradley Cooper, then Teen Spirit was its pop song. The film is derivative, calibrated to appeal to a lowest-common-denominator audience … and yet admittedly catchy, even if it’s immediately recognizable as an interchangeable work.

Woody Allen‘s next movie may never see the light of day. The prolific filmmaker recently announced he was taking time off from directing for the first time since 1981, and now comes word that Amazon has shelved his next film, A Rainy Day in New York.

I Think We're Alone Now trailer

The long break between Game of Thrones seasons means it’s been a while since we’ve seen a great Peter Dinklage performance.

It’s a new post-apocalyptic movie in which Dinklage plays the last man on Earth – but his tranquil existence is interrupted when he discovers a young woman (played by Super 8‘s Elle Fanning) in his small abandoned town.

We’ve seen a couple of teaser trailers already, but now the full trailer has arrived and you can check it out below. Read More »
