For people who love movies, and we at MTV News certainly do, 2010’s box-office offerings have been a little inconsistent. Nevertheless, if you’ve been passing up the mediocrity in anticipation of something worth your time and hard-earned dollars, “Easy A” is your reason to get back to the theater. Yes, we’ve gushed a bit about it all week, but it is that good.
Nice girl/ semi-outsider Olive (Stone) makes a deal with a guy friend to pretend to have loud, crazy sex at a house party so the bullies at their high school will think he’s “cool” and leave him alone. But that one good-natured act soon spirals into many more “requests” from other similarly plagued students. Soon the high school rumor mill has been set ablaze with exaggerated accounts of Olive’s alleged exploits.
And it’s finally in theaters! To celebrate the well-made and well-acted teen comedy that is “Easy A,” here is everything you need to know!
When Emma Stone, a much-loved scene-stealer in films like “Superbad” and “The House Bunny,” was announced in her first big starring role back in March 2009, fans were already excited about the project.
Days before production began in June 2009, we learned which actors would fill out the hilarious supporting roles: Penn Badgley, Cam Gigandet, Stanley Tucci, Lisa Kudrow and more.
Shortly thereafter, we caught up with “Twilight” hunk Gigandet to hear about his role in the film. “I’m one of those characters who you think is one person, where he turns out to not be,” Gigandet said.
Finally, almost a full year later, in May, we got our first look at the talented cast in action, courtesy of the first trailer. This only solidified our interest in the film.
In late July, we stole a few moments with director Will Gluck, who heaped praise on Stone as a leading lady, as well as the rest of his talented cast.
That was followed by our first exclusive clip, which is coincidentally one of the funniest sequences in the film. Stone’s quote/narration over the scene speaks for itself: “If people thought I was a dirty skank, fine. I’d be the dirtiest skank they’d ever seen.”
And just recently, we sat down with the film’s stars to discuss the many quirks and charms of the film. Badgley dished on the most amusing rumor he’d heard about himself, and Stone revealed how filming a fake sex scene induced an asthma attack.
Earlier this week, it was finally time for the film’s premiere, where Stone and her co-stars shined, along with several other fashion-forward stars, including Taylor Swift and Keke Palmer.
Check out everything we’ve got on “Easy A.”
