Missing ‘WandaVision’? Check out all of Elizabeth Olsen’s past movies
Okay, so WandaVision is over. You can already feel a gaping hole forming in your chest where the TV show has been residing for two months. It’s the post-show blues, and right about now you’re wishing you could create your own alternate world where WandaVision episodes continue to air every week and they’re always good.
While we’re afraid we can’t offer you help on creating an alternate reality, we can help you with the post-show blues. We have a lot of experience with feeling a bit sad after a great show has ended. Our recommendation? Immediately find other content to watch with the same actors.
It might not be exactly what you’re craving, but it helps prevent you from feeling like you’re going cold-turkey. So, let’s talk about Elizabeth Olsen’s past works! These are the movies you’ll want to check out this weekend to prevent you from pining over her character Wanda.
Yep, that’s right. The newer series of Godzilla movies features Elizabeth Olsen in the 2014 version of the film. If you haven’t been watching the new Godzilla movies, the logline for this one is, “The world is beset by the appearance of monstrous creatures, but one of them may be the only one who can save humanity.”
This action-packed disaster movie doesn’t just star Elizabeth Olsen, it also features Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The movie is just over two hours and can be rented on iTunes, Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, YouTube, and more.
I Saw the Light
If you’d like to keep seeing Elizabeth Olsen dress up like she’s living in another decade, I Saw the Light, is one of the movies you’ll have to put on your watch list. The 2015 movie is a biopic about the life of country singer Hank Williams.
The film stars Tom Hiddleston as Hank Williams and Olsen as his wife. The movie is dramatic, and features some impressive singing performances from Hiddleston. It’s rated R and has a runtime of about two hours and three minutes. You can rent the film on Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, iTunes, YouTube, Vudu, and more. (Amazon Prime is the cheapest though.)
Very Good Girls
Very Good Girls stars Dakota Fanning and Elizabeth Olsen as two girls fresh out of high school and looking to lose their virginities. The movie is a dramatic coming of age story that leads to a mess when the girls both fall for the same guy.
Very Good Girls is one hour and thirty-one minutes, and can be watched for free on YouTube, or for no extra charge if you have an Amazon Prime subscription or Sling TV subscription. The movie originally premiered in 2013 at the Sundance Film Festival.
Ingrid Goes West
If you want something a little more modern, fresh, and perhaps . . . crazy, then Ingrid Goes West should be one of the movies you watch this weekend. It stars Aubrey Plaza as an unhinged social media stalker who moves to LA in order to insert herself into the life of an Instagram influencer.
It also stars Elizabeth Olsen (of course) and O’Shea Jackson Jr. The movie is a wild dramedy that will keep you glued to the screen for an hour and thirty-eight minutes. The 2017 film can be watched on Amazon Prime, YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV+, or Vudu.
Elizabeth Olsen seems to love brooding & dramatic movies – Kodachrome is one of those last hoorah road-trip films. A grumpy old photographer who is dying asks his son to take him on a road-trip to the last place in the world that still develops kodachrome film.
The 2017 movie stars Ed Harris as photographer Ben Harris, Jason Sudekis as his son, and Elizabeth Olsen as Ben’s nurse & personal assistant. If you’d like to watch the movie it’s an hour and forty-five minutes. After premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, Kodachrome was picked up by Netflix – meaning that’s the only place to stream the movie.
