Kirsten Dunst is an American screenwriter and actress. She has portrayed angelic young girls in some of her most well-known films such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Edward Scissorhands, and A Nightmare on the Elm Street. In her latest film, Mockingjay, she plays the role of Silhouette, a mentally disturbed girl possessed by a vengeful spirit.
Like many other famous actresses, Dunst has also spent some time in television. Her first major television role was on the show Webster on ABC. This period drama featured her co-stars in an ensemble that also included John Ritter, Carol Burnett, Michael Chiklis, and John Heard. At the time, some critics noted that Dunst’s performance was below standard, but this film debut managed to garner her an additional three Golden Globes for Best Actress in a Leading Role category.
During the late nineties, Dunst appeared in the second season of Star Trek: The Next Generation. This series featured her Star Trek co-star, Sariahole Lucrative, as an alternate version of herself. Lucrative played the part of a humanoid woman who appeared to be the most human of all of the recurring characters. Critics noted that while her physical appearance was markedly different from her previous appearances, this turn provided her with much more charm than her previous appearances and she proved to be a great success as a character in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Dunst then appeared in the Spider-Man 3 film, where she again starred alongside Anne Hathaway, Ed Harris, and George Clooney. The film featured the nerdy alien Kreezer, who had an unbreakable arc that saw him try to enlist the aid of Peter Parker (Clooney) in his fight against villains. Meanwhile, in another scene, Dunst’s character encounters an evil figure known as Shocker (Harris), who wants to use her as a test on whether or not Peter Parker is a fraud. The two encounter a number of other strange and intriguing characters before they are caught up with the Green Goblin, who threatens to blow up New York City if Spider-Man goes after him.
However, in the climactic battle that follows, Spider-Man uses his new webbing to swing through the crowds and Dodge several panels of fire from the Green Goblin’s gun. In the end, Spider-Man gets away by stealing the Green Goblin’s briefcase, which contains a dangerous device that allows him to have total control over Electro-Man. The film ended with a very dramatic, and public display of Spider-Man swinging through Times Square with the police behind him. It was this film that gave birth to one of the most popular comic book superheroes of all time, and also made Kirsten Dunst one of the most acclaimed actresses in Hollywood.
No doubt, the trailers for Spider-Man: Homecoming were bombarded by critics and audiences alike. This film has a lot to answer for, after all, having been given a very poor rating by critics and moviegoers. Did you know that a trailer can affect your opinion of a film so much so that a person’s opinion can completely change just before the trailer is even given to the public? It’s true; it’s that powerful. The audience is given a very brief look at what is in store for Peter Parker in Homecoming before the trailer cuts to black and opens up again, so all of the previous footage shown is completely lost.
