On Monday evening, Emily attended the CFDA Vogue Fashion Fund 15th Anniversary Event, which took place at Navy Yard in Brooklyn. Over 150 photos from the event have been adding to the gallery, so be sure to take a look.
LOS ANGELES TIMES – The star and director of “Mary Poppins Returns” sit close together on a settee in a hotel suite high above Central Park, thick as thieves, and suddenly they’re not Emily Blunt, Golden Globe-winning actress, and Rob Marshall, Hollywood’s Oscar-nominated go-to musical man.
It’s the “Em and Robbie” show.
There’s an exceedingly warm mutual admiration and a shorthand between the pair after two films together, a rapport that first sparked years ago over lunch for a project that didn’t pan out and blossomed when Blunt starred as the plucky baker’s wife in Marshall’s 2014 hit adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods.”
Marshall calls Blunt an old soul and “my favorite actress.” She vows to lure him and his partner, John DeLuca, out of Manhattan and “convert them to Brooky-Brooks” — meaning Brooklyn, where she lives with husband John Krasinski.
The two are creatively simpatico, they say, which is a big part of how they found the confidence to attempt something as wildly ambitious as reviving one of the most beloved characters in cinematic history. Also, Marshall adds, it helps that they both like martinis.
Still, Blunt admits, she was surprised and terrified when Marshall called her one day after the success of “Into the Woods” to propose teaming up on a new project he wanted to make with Disney.
“He said, ‘By far their most prized possession is Mary Poppins,’ and I remember my hair blowing back from thrill and vague panic,” Blunt said with a laugh. But she said yes immediately, and the massive undertaking began.
We’ve updated the gallery with a handful of photos of Emily and husband John Krasinski attending the 21st SCAD Savannah Film Festival over the weekend (Oct 27), where they were both given two special honors – Emily with an Icon Award and John with a Vanguard Award. Congratulations to our favorite couple!
There were yet more couple-goals moments from Emily and John at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival this past weekend, and you can watch the video over at Entertainment Weekly.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Love was in the air at the SCAD Savannah Film Festival, when A Quiet Place stars and real-life couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt sat down with EW and revealed their favorite films the other has starred in — along with a few compliments sure to warm everyone’s hearts.
Asked to share his favorite of his wife’s roles, Krasinski went for a classic. “Everybody keeps making fun of me for it, but The Devil Wears Prada was just one of those things where it was sort of my introduction to her,” shared the actor.
While he happily complimented his wife’s turns in Prada and My Summer of Love, the Jack Ryan star joked, “She’s gonna say she hasn’t seen anything I’ve done.”
Proving her husband wrong, the Mary Poppins star revealed some of her favorites. “I love him in A Quiet Place, I think he’s really stunning in it, but I loved him in Away We Go. I think he was just awesome in it. I loved his big shaggy beard and the hair and he was so authentic and funny. I think that’s one of my favorites that he’s done.”
Referencing Blunt’s roles in Sicario, Girl on the Train, and the upcoming Mary Poppins Returns, Krasinski said simply, “there’s nothing she can’t do.”
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt’s Jungle Cruise is sailing into a later release date. The Disney film will now open in the heart of summer movie season on July 24, 2020.
The film previously had been scheduled for Oct. 10, 2019. Jungle Cruise is the only project with a title set for that date, though Warner Bros. has an untitled DC film and Sony has an untitled animated franchise movie currently slotted in that spot.
The Shallows filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra is helming Jungle Cruise, which is set in the early 20th century and takes place in the Amazon jungle. Johnson stars as a boat captain who takes a sister (Blunt) and brother (Jack Whitehall) on a journey to find a tree believed to have healing powers. Along the way, they must deal with wild animals and a competing German expedition. Paul Giamatti is also starring.
Beau Flynn, John Davis and John Fox are producing, as are Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia. Scott Sheldon is co-producing.
“Ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages. My partner in crime, Emily Blunt and I, lovingly invite you to join us for THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME. All aboard,” Johnson tweeted Friday. Jungle Cruise wrapped filming in September.
Disney also undated an untitled Marvel movie, unsetting it from July 31, 2020. Little is known about Marvel Studios’ plans beyond next summer’s Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home. Before he was fired as director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, James Gunn had said that film would open in 2020, and there had been speculation the film would open in that date or a May 1, 2020 slot, however, Marvel Studios never officially dated the film.
At long last, we finally have the first trailer for Mary Poppins Returns! It looks like a really great continuation of the story, and the perfect holiday film for all the family and I really appreciate that such effort has gone into recapturing the magic of the original. Emily seems to be the perfect fit for the role, doesn’t she? If you haven’t already, you can view the trailer below. I’ve also uploaded screen captures to the gallery as well. Enjoy!
At long last, our gallery has been updated with Blu-ray quality screen captures of Emily’s role in A Quiet Place–the brilliant horror film that went on to become her 2nd most successful film at the worldwide box office (just behind Edge of Tomorrow). For anyone that has seen it, you’ll no doubt agree that she did a wonderful job-as did the whole cast, which included her husband John Krasinski (who also wrote and directed the project). Enjoy the captures!
