A second trailer for Elle Fanning’s “Teen Spirit” was released today. The new video marks the second trailer that Bleecker Street has released for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters this April. The first video offered a quick tease of Elle Fanning singing “Dancing On My Own” by Robyn, but the new trailer offers more clips from the film.
In the story, Elle Fanning plays Violet, a shy teenager who dreams of escaping her small town and pursuing her passion for singing. With the help of an unlikely mentor, she enters a local singing competition that will test her integrity, talent, and ambition.
The studio teases the film adding, “Driven by a pop-fueled soundtrack, Teen Spirit is a visceral and stylish spin on the Cinderella story.”
Max Minghella wrote and directed “Teen Spirit,” the film also stars Rebecca Hall, Zlatko Buric, and Agnieszka Grochowska.
The film was produced by Fred Berger (La La Land) and executive produced by Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot). It was also announced that Interscope Records, which handled the chart-topping soundtrack on La La Land, co-produced with Automatik and Blank Tape, and will release the official soundtrack featuring contemporary pop anthems.
“Teen Spirit” will release in theaters on April 5, 2019, during a busy weekend at the box office. Robin Bissell’s “Best of Enemies” with Taraji P. Henson, Sam Rockwell, and Anne Heche is opening against “Teen Spirit,” the “Pet Sematary” reboot, and DC’s “Shazam!”. The following week will also be crowded, with “Hellboy” releasing in theaters nationwide.
Fans of Fanning will also get to see her in the upcoming Disney live-action movie “Maleficent 2,” which was directed by Joachim Rønning. The highly anticipated sequel will also star Michelle Pfeiffer, Ed Skrein, Juno Temple, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Imelda Staunton, Lesley Manville, Sam Riley, and Angelina Jolie. Fanning starred in the first film as Aurora, a role she will be reprising in the sequel. The first installment made over $69M domestically on opening weekend and went on to make $758M worldwide.
