Jungle Cruise, the upcoming blockbuster starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, will reportedly feature Disney's first openly gay character. While that's progress for sure, there is some criticism over the casting of the role.
They may have starred together in a mostly silent movie, but the two seem pretty vocal when it comes to lovingly supporting one another.
"A Quiet Place" concerns a family living in an America where silence is golden — because there are malevolent creatures stalking the land that attack anything they hear.
Now the masses will also get to learn from Connie Simpson’s life-changing powers, because after three quiet decades in the business of caring for newborns, she’s just come out with an advice-packed parenting book: "The Nanny Connie Way: Have No Fear."
James Corden’s employees will go to extreme measures to hide from the “Late Late Show” host, playing Monopoly in silence or bubble-wrapping musical instruments to stay quiet. In “A Quiet Place,” a family must live in silence, otherwise creatures will hunt them. In the parody, Corden just doesn’t seem to get the picture, and constantly tries to hang out with his employees.
“A Quiet Place” takes place 95 percent in silence — that means barely any music or dialogue — and director and star John Krasinski said that the cast learned sign language for every line in the script. “We did all learn sign language,” Krasinski told TheWrap at the SXSW Film Festival last month. “We had the most incredible actress [Millicent Simmonds] who happens to be deaf in real life, which was sort of a non-negotiable thing for me.
Actor-director explains what he put his wife through to film the most intense scene of new horror-thriller "The Quiet Place."
What makes the premise of "A Quiet Place" — the need to be silent lest one become monster food — uniquely relevant to 2018 is that we're living in a time when speaking up matters more than ever.
Emily Blunt admits she is now “really careful” about what she says after she faced calls to leave America for making a quip about Donald Trump. The actress, who was born in Roehampton, joked in a 2015 video interview that she feared she had made a “terrible mistake” by taking US citizenship after watching Mr Trump in a Republican primary debate. Blunt, 35, who now lives in Brooklyn with her husband, director and actor John Krasinski, and children Hazel, four, and Violet, one, told ES Magazine the incident had had a lasting effect.
Blunt channels Julie Andrews in the first teaser for "Mary Poppins" sequel co-starring Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Wishaw, Emily Mortimer, Meryl Streep, Angela Lansbury, and Dick Van Dyke.
Mary Poppins Returns director Rob Marshall and star Emily Blunt took to the stage at Disney’s D23 Expo in Anaheim Saturday where they shared the film’s first trailer and some tidbits about the sequel, including the fact that it’s set 25 years after the original 1964 classic. Given that Blunt is only a few years older than Julie Andrews was when she took on the iconic role of a flying nanny who saves a British family in turmoil, this got us thinking: Is Mary Poppins immortal? “She is ageless,” confirmed Marshall (Chicago) on a more earnest note.
At long last, we have the scoop on Mary Poppins Returns (in theaters Christmas 2018), a movie that looks as sweet as a spoonful of you-know-what. This week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story is all about the new Disney musical — a sequel to, and not a reboot of — the 1964 classic (which won 5 Oscars and was nominated for 8 more, including Best Picture). Emily Blunt, who plays the title role, graces the magazine’s cover in a jaunty blue hat and red suit, an update on the tailored nanny ensemble originally worn by Julie Andrews.
Character appears to have a somewhat modernized look, yet there are obvious callbacks to her 1964 version too
The Girl on the Train star Emily Blunt was on the Today show and chatted with Savannah Guthrie about being pregnant with her, and husband John Krasinski’s, second daughter, Violet, while filming the movie. “Poor sweet Violet rattling around in there while I played the alcoholic,” Blunt said with a smile. “Did that, it sounds like a weird question, but did it help in the sense of here you have all these kind of hormones and feelings?” asked Guthrie.
Baby makes 4! John Krasinski took to Twitter on Monday, July 4, to announce that he and his wife, Emily Blunt, welcomed a second daughter named Violet two weeks ago.
When the first trailer for The Huntsman: Winter’s War came out three months ago, it was hard to know who audiences were supposed to root for in this Kristen Stewart-less prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman. Did the preening, power-hungry Ravenna really kill Freya’s baby?
If fans of The Colbert Report tuned in on Monday night to see a meaty discussion of judicial ethics between host Stephen Colbert and Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer on Late Show, they may have ultimately decided that watching Colbert pretend to vomit with Emily Blunt was more, ah, edifying. Justice Breyer was on the show for the same reason so many citizens go on talk shows: to hawk a book — in his case, the recently published The Court And The World. Colbert joshed with him about the comfort of a job with a lifetime appointment, and Breyer complied with Talk-Show Law by telling one “funny” anecdote, this one a very mild sally about fetching coffee for Justice Antonin Scalia.
