As usual, a clutch of films has been premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.

The Runaways, written and directed by
Floria Sigismondi, is one of them. It’s a biopic about the all-girl rock band of the same name which shot to fame in the 70s. The film stars Dakota Fanning and Kristin Stewart.

The Runaways will be released in the US on the 19th March.

Katie Holmes also worked the red carpet – or should that be the red wallpaper? Anyway, she was there, promoting “The Extra Man” a comedy directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini
and starring Kevin Klein as a down-at-heel writer turned escort and his relationship with an aspiring young writer who has a cruch on guess who? (Think red wallpaper.)

No release date has been announced.

“Welcome to the Rileys” also premiered, giving the press a second shot at interviewing Kristin Stewart (was also in the Runaways if you remember). This time she plays a teenage prostitute in a drama abut a couple whose daughter has died eight years previously in a car accident. The film was directed by Jake Scott (yes, son of Ridley) and also stars James Gandolfini. The story makes for uncomfortable viewing.

No release date has been announced.
