We spoke with Blunt — who is every bit as pleasant as you think, and then some — about A Quiet Place, the most challenging scene to shoot, and some of the classic films that inspired Krasinski’s thriller.
It’s a tale as old as time: In a near future, not too far from our own, the few remaining survivors of some mysterious Earth-shattering incident have carved out a desperate, tenuous living while fighting to survive. There is something undeniably — and satisfyingly — old-fashioned about A Quiet Place; a thriller that examines our place in a society that no longer exists and what it means to be human in the face of monstrous terror. It’s also a knuckle-biting masterclass in escalating tension that establishes John Krasinski as a serious filmmaker capable of crafting one hell of an emotional thrill ride.
It’s been more than 50 years since we last saw Mary Poppins, flying off on the wind with her magic umbrella. But now she is back in the appropriately titled Mary Poppins Returns, with Emily Blunt assuming the title role from Julie Andrews, and Lin-Manuel Miranda in place of Dick Van Dyke (he’s not playing the same character, but we’re guessing he’s gonna sweep a chimney or two)...
Edge of Tomorrow — the best summer blockbuster of 2014 — may have underwhelmed at the domestic box office, but it’s difficult to find anyone who actually watched it who didn’t have a great time with it. So when Tom Cruise starts teasing a potential sequel that will reunite him and Emily Blunt for another round of time-traveling, alien-shooting, heavy-armor-wearing, yoga-posing awesomeness, our ears perk up. Yes please, we would like an Edge of Tomorrow 2.
We're only a little over a week away from the release of 'Edge of Tomorrow,' and unlike most of this summer's releases, Warner Bros. has been a little more conservative with the amount of clips and footage they've put out so far -- which makes any new footage we get a chance to see that much sweeter. And these latest clips look pretty, pretty, pretty cool.
The latest 'Edge of Tomorrow' trailer has arrived, and it gives us an extended look at the latest sci-fi action epic starring Tom Cruise doing what Tom Cruise does best: playing a soldier who fights enigmatic aliens -- but this time he's got one seriously badass mech suit, and Emily Blunt is here to help him out.
