The new comedy The Oath couldn’t come at a better time. The Oct. 12 release follows a very liberal couple (Ike Barinholtz, Tiffany Haddish) as they welcome conservative family members to their home for Thanksgiving dinner. Do sparks fly? Try punches (and maybe more, according to the film’s rowdy trailer).
Perhaps one day Hollywood will lose interest in people losing their virginity. But until then, it will continue to produce formulaic peons to the only aspect of adulthood Tinsel Town ever gets enthusiastic about.
Actresses Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen star in the upcoming movie “Very Good Girls” as best friends who make a pact to lose their virginity before heading off to college. Directed by Naomi Foner, the film boasts a cast including Demi Moore, Richard Dreyfuss, Ellen Barkin, Peter Sarsgaard and Clark Gregg. The film premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival and hits theaters July 25. Continued after the video.
In an Entertainment Weekly interview, Jodie Foster explained her views on guns, “I don't believe that any gun should be in the hand of a thinking, feeling, breathing human being.”
She also said it is “shameful” that the “unsophisticated people who see a sophisticated movie” will cheer when she goes after the bad guys who kill her fiance in her new vigilante movie “The Brave One”
(emphasis mine throughout):
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: There's a rallying moment in The Brave One when you stick a gun in a bad guy's face and say, ''I want my dog back.'' How are you going to feel about the audience cheering on your character as she starts hunting people down?
JODIE FOSTER: It's shameful, but that's human and that's who we are as human beings. There will be unsophisticated people who see a sophisticated movie. Just like there were in The Accused. And thank God I only went to one screening of that movie with an audience.
