Jena Malone, who is best known for her roles in The Hunger Games franchise, SuckerPunch and Donnie Darko just to name a few, is cast to star in Batman v. Superman. The casting news has been known for quite some time, October of 2014 to be exact. Initially fans and media alike thought she would play Carrie Kelley, the Robin from Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns, but Latino Review is reporting that she will play a different iconic Batman femme.
Alicia Silverstone and director Amy Heckerling are back together again in the vampire comedy called Vamps. The rest of the cast is full of famous faces like Kristen Ritter, Dan Stevens, Wallace Shawn, Richard Lewis, Sigourney Weaver, Justin Kirk, and Malcolm McDowell. What worries me is that the movie is only getting a very limited theater release, which means that the powers that be don’t have a lot of confidence in the movie’s ability to draw crowds and make money.Then again putting faith in the ability of Hollywood executives to determine the quality of a movie and promote it isn’t an intelligent bet.
The Vamps movie Synopsis:
Goody (Alicia Silverstone) and Stacy (Krysten Ritter) are addicted to the night life, clubbing, hooking up and always looking for the next thrill, all the while keeping a big a secret-they happen to be modern-day vampires. But even with lifetimes of dating experience behind them, the duo realizes they still have a lot to learn about love when Stacy unexpectedly falls for the son of a vampire hunter, and Goody runs into the man of her dreams from decades earlier.
With their destinies at stake, the girls are faced with a difficult choice; give up their eternal youth for a chance at love, or continue to live their uncomplicated fabulously single lives forever.
I get a real 90’s vibe from this movie trailer and although I’d probably watch it on cable on a Sunday afternoon, I doubt that I’d go see this in the theater unless it’s date night and she’s choosing the movie. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think in the comments section below.
