Elle Fanning on “Super 8” and sister Dakota’s college plans


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: “Super 8” star Elle Fanning walked the red carpet at her movie’s premiere in Hollywood Wednesday night and ended up answering questions about her big sister, Dakota, the high-school graduate.

“It was amazing! It was two days ago, and she had the cap and the gown and the gold rope and everything,” Elle told Access Hollywood. “It was amazing.”

As amazing as her effects-laden monster movie, a throwback to the days of “Close Encounters” and other Spielberg classics? “Super 8,” which opens everywhere today, comes from “Star Trek” director J.J. Abrams and promises more than the creature thrills being sold in the trailers.

“When you see the trailer, there’s a lot of action for the guys, and then there’s a love story – a first love — it’s very sweet,” Fanning confirmed.

She also confirmed sister Dakota’s immediate plans.

“She is [going to college],” Elle said. “Somewhere on the east coast.”
