Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning Fandango interview

Thanks to @kstewadmirers for Tweeting this:

Fandango has published an edited version of an interview that Dakota Fanning and Kristen Stewart did at Sundance about The Runaways. Here’s a short snippet:

Q: We talked to Cherie, who said she feels like she’s living in a dream because you’re playing her, and Joan said you guys had very similar energy. How much time did you guys spend with them before and during the production?
Dakota: A lot. They were there pretty much every day and I spent a lot of time with Cherie before we started filming. I think it was important that they were there… because it’s their life, you know?
Kristen: There wasn’t a period of ‘let’s feel this out and see how much we’re willing to delve into personal aspects of your lives and how much we’re willing to expose ourselves’…but we really liked each other…there was just something really special.

Q: Was part of your attraction to the role the fact that this is about something that’s still very taboo…women doing certain things?
Kristen: Yeah, that was a huge thing and especially for Joan, it’s still such a huge [thing].…we’re girls that have both been brought up thinking we can do whatever we want and there are a lot of very empowered females [now], but it just wasn’t like that then. And I think that people don’t really realize that The Runaways were the first girls to play music like that and it could have been someone else, but it wasn’t. It was them.

And here is the full audio from that interview. It contains some foul language. (Go Stew!) This is the “p*ssy” to the wood” interview. 🙂

Runaways video roundup 01/30/2010

Here are all of the new video clips about The Runaways since the last time I posted some. There have also been a lot of online interviews, but I will only post the ones that are not re-hashes of interviews that I’ve already posted the video or audio of.

Just to inform you: I am completely serious about not wanting to be spoiled for The Runaways movie, so I’m not going to read or post any of the reviews. It makes no difference to me if this film is a critical success or not. The band itself never was, so I don’t care what critics think about them now.

On with the show! Continue reading

I have decided to not read any reviews of the film until after I see the movie. I don’t need the spoilers or the opinions of so-called “journalists”. All I need is my rock and roll. If you want to read the articles and reviews, check them out at the Joan Jett Fanclub website (, Kristen Stewart Fans, or any of the wonderful people I mentioned in my “Jetthead’s Guide to the 2010 Sundance Film Festival” post. They will all take good care of you.

‘The Runaways’ to premiere at Sundance; Fan-Made Trailer

Several sources* have reported this week that The Runaways will make its world premiere at The Sundance Film Festival in January 2010 in the non-competition lineup. Kristen Stewart’s Welcome to the Rileys, filmed in 2008, is competing in the Drama category at the festival. A group of Kristen Stewart fans, Team 411, is referring to this as the “Two by Stew Sundance.” Love it!

The 2010 Sundance Film Festival will be held in Park City, UT, January 21-31, 2010.

There are rumors of a March release date for The Runaways, and Team 411 speculates that it will premiere at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas before being released everywhere else. Sounds like a good theory to me, but again, none of this has been officially announced by anyone, so nothing is set in stone.

There are hordes of people waiting to see The Runaways trailer. While we wait for the real thing, check out this fan-made trailer I found on YouTube. Maybe we can make more while we wait? If you make one or find one, post it in the comments below or email the link to!
