Back on November 29, Emily attended a press conference for Mary Poppins Returns that took place at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills. Enjoy the beautiful photos! More to be added soon!
Last night marked the first premiere event of Mary Poppins Returns–taking place at the El Capitan Theatre in Los Angeles. I honestly don’t think I have ever seen Emily look more beautiful on the red carpet than she does here – so it’s with great pleasure that we can bring you more than 700 photos from the event. Enjoy!
Yesterday marked another promotional event in the lead up to the release of Mary Poppins Returns, and we’ve added some lovely photos of Emily (alongside director Rob Marshall and co-stars Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw and Emily Mortimer) at a press conference for the film, held at the Montage in Beverly Hills. Enjoy!
Emily is featured on the cover of the January issue of Harpers Bazaar UK, looking beautiful in a Mary Poppins-inspired shoot. I’m completely in love with these photos, and I hope that we’ll see much more from the editorial.
HARPERS BAZAAR UK – Emily Blunt gazes quizzically at the camera. Perching jauntily on the brim of her black hat, George the robin does exactly the same, apparently unfazed by the flashes and clicks. “Sit! Good lad!” coaxes his handler.
Bazaar cover shoots are always exquisite, but this one seems particularly magical, inspired as it is by the world of Mary Poppins in honour of Blunt’s latest starring role. The weather has been horrible for the past few days, but now the sky is a limpid blue. Assistants on ladders throw artificial blossom that falls like pink snow, a carousel has been temporarily set up in the garden, and we have been joined by a pack of a dozen dogs, ranging from a tiny chihuahua called Manuel to a colossal Great Dane named Parker. To add to the fairy-tale surrealism, just across the street from our location, hundreds more dogs are gathering with their owners for an anti-Brexit ‘Wooferendum’ march, a scene of cheerful chaos itself worthy of Cherry Tree Lane, the setting for the original Mary Poppins stories.
But there is no doubt that George is the star of the show. “Oh my God, the robin!” Blunt cries. “I want one! Every girl needs one!”
Mary Poppins, of course, has one. In the original film, starring Julie Andrews, the magic nanny makes a confidant of an oversize (American) robin, to which she sings ‘A Spoonful of Sugar’. For Mary Poppins Returns, this robin has been stuffed and added to her hat, a neat device that instantly prepares you for a less saccharine interpretation of the childhood classic. “It’s a dark time, the Thirties, isn’t it?” says Blunt.
More Emily exposure! She’s a part of Variety’s next Actors on Actors series, which she also involved in alongside her good friend Jennifer Aniston back in 2014 (promoting Into the Woods). This time she’s paired with Hugh Jackman, and judging from the photos, I’m sure they’ll have a great chemistry for the feature. The first two episodes of the Emmy Award-winning series will premiere on PBS SoCal on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. with episodes three and four set to premiere on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. All episodes will stream on pbssocal.org following their premieres (via Variety). Enjoy the photos!
