Elle Fanning was half way there the other day as she sipped a cold one while strolling in Beverly Hills -- she had her Coke, but no smile!
The Super 8 star should be happy ... her new film, directed by J.J. Abrams and produced by Steven Spielberg, grossed $38 million its first four days out (two weeks ago). The relatively low-budget film cost $50 million to make so by now it's broken even at least.
Set in 1979, Super 8 tells the story of a group of kids who are filming a home movie when thereâ€™s a violent train crash. When unexplained events start to threaten their town, they begin to suspect something inhuman escaped from the train, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The film stars Joel Courtney, Elle Fanning, Kyle Chandler, Ryan Lee, Riley Griffiths, Gabriel Basso and Zach Mills.
Fanning also stars in upcoming films by Francis Ford Coppola (Twixt Now) and by Cameron Crowe (We Bought a Zoo). She was directed by Sofia Coppola last year in Somewhere and she starred along side Sean Penn in I Am Sam. Quite an impressive resume for a 13-year-old!
