'Sicario' Star Emily Blunt Doesn't Think Of Gun-Toting Female Roles As 'Tough'


Emily Blunt

The film industry is quickly becoming awash with badass female characters and Emily Blunt is one of those actors who have mastered the art of the 'tough girl'. But with her new film, cop thriller 'Sicario', she believes that 'tough' isn't necessarily the best way to look at it.

Blunt plays FBI agent Kate Macy, who is on board a mission to beat the drug trafficking over the Mexico-US border. However, the male dominated team around her have methods that she's not so sure she wants to be involved in, but when things start to get out of control, she is forced to question her own morality if she wants to live. While her performance might've impressed her co-stars and the crew on the set, the character was very nearly re-written for a guy over fears for its viewability.

Emily Blunt

Film producer Valera Richter, who has part of her left foot amputated, was stopped at the Cannes Film Festival for not wearing high heels. She told BBC 5 Live that a red carpet official pointed at her footwear and said: "No, no, this won't work, you can't get in like this."

The incident comes amidst widespread criticism of the festival's apparent stance against flat shoes. The official line from organisers is that heels are not an essential part of the dress code and ushers have been "reminded" of his.

Cannes Organisers Respond To 'Flatgate' Heel Controversy


Cannes Film Festival Emily Blunt

The organisers of the Cannes Film Festival have struck back at outraged reports that women are being refused entry for certain film premieres for not wearing high heels, claiming that the rumours are “unfounded”.

The controversy being labelled as ‘flatgate’ was first reported by movie news website Screen Daily, after an unnamed ‘Cannes regular’ tipped off the site that a number of women, including some who were older and with medical conditions, were being turned away at the red carpet for failing to wear high enough heels.

Video - Lady Gaga Causes A Minor Crowd Disturbance As She Sets Out For The 2015 Met Gala - Part 1


There's a flurry of eager bustling as Lady GaGa steps out of the Mark Hotel in New York to board a luxury coach that will take her to the 2015 Met Gala, where this year's theme was China: Through The Looking Glass. Gaga looked particularly eccentric as usual, in a wide-sleeved, mesh-patterned robe complete with super high platform boots.

John Krasinski and Anna Kendrick Clash in the Lip Sync Battle of the Century


John Krasinski Anna Kendrick Jimmy Fallon Emily Blunt

Can we all agree that The Tonight Show is the funniest of the late night circuit? Everyone else can stop trying now, thank you. Last night (Thursday, April 16) saw the return of John Krasinski to Fallon’s studio and the actor paid (hilarious) tribute to N’Sync and Jimmy’s old pal Justin Timberlake.

Anna Kendrick
Krasinski was good, but he was no match for Kendrick's cunning.

It was the lip sync battle of a century, with Krasinski absolutely killing it rocking out to the band’s 2000 hit Bye Bye Bye, as I’m sure we’ve all done at one point or another, probably after a couple tequilas.

Bafta 2015 Nominations Reveal Secrets Of Awards Season


Timothy Spall BAFTA David Oyelowo Tom Wilkinson Carmen Ejogo Tim Roth Jack O'Connell Emily Blunt James Corden Daniel Huttlestone Tracey Ullman

Friday morning's British Academy Film Awards nominations show the predicted BAFTA love for home-grown movies like 'The Imitation Game' and 'The Theory of Everything', but were even more notable for who was missing from the shortlists.

Timothy Spall in Mr Turner
Timothy Spall - snubbed by the academy?

The most obvious snub was for Mike Leigh's acclaimed biographical drama 'Mr Turner', for which Timothy Spall won Best Actor at the Cannes Film Festival. But the film only has a handful of technical nods (for cinematography, production design, costumes and make-up/hair), with nothing for Spall or Leigh, and most surprisingly no British Film nomination.

Into the Woods Review


Excellent

It's taken a long time for this stage musical to make it to the big screen, and while director Rob Marshall once again fails to give the story a sharp focus (see also Chicago and Nine), he at least lets the music and characters shine. Originally staged on Broadway in 1987, this musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a gleeful mash-up of fairy tales that continues on past the "happily ever after", eventually turning rather dark and emotional.

Once upon a time, there was a Baker and his Wife (James Corden and Emily Blunt) who learn that they can't have children because the Witch (Meryl Streep) next door has cursed them. She offers to break the spell if they collect a cow, a cape, a slipper and a lock of hair. Meanwhile, Jack (Daniel Huttlestone) annoys his mother (Tracey Ullman) by selling the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans; Red Riding Hood (Lilla Crawford) dodges a leery Wolf (Johnny Depp) following her through the woods; Cinderella (Anna Kendrick) sneaks to the festival to meet the Prince (Chris Pine) against the wishes of her nasty stepmum (Christine Baranski); and Rapunzel (Mackenzie Mauzy) defies her mother by letting her hair down for a Prince (Billy Magnussen). After knotting together, each plot strand resolves happily. Until the next day.

This is very much a story of two halves, with the sharp, snappy, hilarious first act contrasting strongly against the rather disturbingly grim and grisly second act, as everyone's story unravels to reveal each character's deep neediness. What makes this show so clever is the way it undermines the usual fairy-tale happiness of most stories, cautioning that this artifice is actually a problem for children. While the songs are all clever and thoroughly engaging, none of them is particularly hummable on first listen, but each is packed with witty wordplay and serious subtext that gets under the skin.

"Into the Woods" Got a Bunch of Golden Globes Nods. Anyone Surprised?


Meryl Streep Emily Blunt

Oh my gosh, where did the time go? It’s been another year and it’s Golden Globes nods time again. So some of them are pretty predictable. Meryl Streep and Into the Woods nabbed several nods, among them Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Best Actress for Emily Blunt who plays the Baker's Wife, and Best Supporting Actress for Meryl Streep for playing the Witch.

Meryl Streep
We know Meryl Streep is great in Into the Woods, because... come on. It's Meryl Streep.

So the movie hasn’t really been out long enough for the moviegoing masses to have their say, but the critics have been praising it left and right.
