If James Bond Were A Woman She'd Be Any Of These Ladies


James Bond Emily Blunt Gemma Arterton Kate Beckinsale Rosamund Pike Emilia Clarke Imogen Poots

Since Daniel Craig firmly stated that he didn't want to do another James Bond film after 'Spectre', suggestions have been flying all over the place about who it could be next. Will Idris Elba become the first black 007? Or will it embrace the talents of Tom Hardy or Tom Hiddleston? But what if was a woman?

Ok, so feminism aside, it's a firmly held idea that Bond should continue to be a male. For a start, you'd have to change the name - how many ladies do you know called James? (Apart from Blake Lively's daughter, of course). But if you erase the tradition of him being a man, you might as well erase all the other Bond conventions; the gadgets, the fast cars, the womanising etc. But, turning pop culture upside for a moment, if James Bond WERE a woman - who would she be?

Sicario Review

Extraordinary

A rare film that adds up to much more than the sum of its parts, this works as both a dramatic character study and a tense thriller. The title is Mexican slang for "hitman". And with fierce direction, razor-sharp writing and breathtakingly layered performances, this is one of the most involving, thrilling movies of the year. It also has something urgent to say about the political world we live in.

Kate (Emily Blunt) is the leader of an FBI unit in Phoenix, and is taken aback when offbeat Homeland Security agent Matt (Josh Brolin) asks her to join his team tracking a Mexican drug cartel kingpin. She brings her partner (Daniel Kaluuya) along, and they struggle to make sense of their new mission, especially the shady operative Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) who's working alongside them. The question is which organisation is actually running this operation, and what the real goal is. Clearly international laws are being bent at every step, and Kate is worried that she might also be compromising her moral and ethical principles. Meanwhile over the border, a local cop (Maximiliano Hernandez) is involved in activities that may cause trouble for his family and community.

Director Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) keeps this story tightly under control, taking the audience along on Kate's odyssey into the dark side of international law enforcement, which has little regard for the law. Blunt brings a remarkable authenticity to her role as a steely, smart leader who is always on-edge, trying to find a way through an unpredictable situation. As she quietly reveals Kate's thought processes, the audience is able to identify with her at every step. Which makes every scene both riveting and emotionally wrenching. Opposite her, both Brolin and Del Toro are on top form, infusing the film with quirky details, black humour and challenging ideas. There's also an astonishing role for Jon Bernthal as a cowboy who flirts with Kate, and then some.

Emily Blunt Talks About Ex-Boyfriend Michael Buble's Infidelity Rumours


Emily Blunt Michael Buble John Krasinski

Emily Blunt clammed up when asked about rumours of her ex-boyfriend Michael Buble’s infidelity when they were together seven years ago, saying she “never want[s] to talk about it.”

The 32 year old Sicario actress, who now has 19 month old daughter Hazel with her husband of five years John Krasinski, told radio presenter Howard Stern on his SiriusXFM show on Wednesday (September 30th) that her split with Buble was “complicated” and that she doesn’t feel comfortable discussing it in depth.

However, the British star did say that she and the 40 year old Canadian singer “had a good time” while they were together and that she still loves his family, especially his mother Amber. “I loved his family. I love his family. I still do.”

Sicario Further Challenges The Action Woman In Emily Blunt


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

After her fierce performance in Edge of Tomorrow, Emily Blunt wanted to take a break from action movies. But Canadian director Denis Villeneuve wanted her to give it another go in the drug cartel thriller Sicario. She wasn't so sure, having just given birth to a baby. "But he's like a quiet assassin," Blunt says. "He lures you in with this smile and this lovely humour, and suddenly you're in Mexico, speeding down the street!"

Emily Blunt and others in SicarioEmily Blunt is a tough-talking officer in crime thriller Sicario

While working on the film, Blunt was shocked at "the sheer brutality of the imprint that cartels leave on people's lives". But she liked the way Sicario (the word is Mexican slang for "hitman") never shies away from that. "I think it reveals how cheap life has become for everybody," she says.

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


Emily Blunt Denis Villeneuve

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.

Emily Blunt at Cannes 2015Emily Blunt doesn't see 'Sicario' character as 'tough'

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.

Amputee Turned Away With Flat Shoes At Cannes Film Festival


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."

Emily BluntEmily Blunt says she would prefer to wear converse sneakers on the red carpet - but then wore heels

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.

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.

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.

Emily Blunt Admits She Was Terrified Of The Singing In Musical Into The Woods


Emily Blunt

Disney's upcoming musical Into the Woods is, quite clearly, based around some fantastic musical scores and performances. But actress Emily Blunt, who plays the baker's wife in the film out on Christmas Day, has revealed how frightened the whole cast was with the concept of singing and how emboldened she felt when she eventually got it right.

She said: "What became clear eventually was that the film required actors not singers. The baker's wife has some big musical numbers that required a lot of acting.

Johnny Depp 'Daunted' By Into The Woods Role


Johnny Depp Rob Marshall Stephen Sondheim Meryl Streep Emily Blunt Anna Kendrick

There's an enormous buzz surrounding Rob Marshall and Stephen Sondheim's stage to film musical 'Into The Woods' with it's spectacular ensemble cast and vibrant setting, but even a super A lister like Johnny Depp couldn't help but feel a little nervous.

Johnny Depp in 'Into The Woods'
Johnny Depp is the wiley Wolf in 'Into The Woods'

Being surrounded by award-winning movie stars like Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt and Anna Kendrick is scary enough without the prospect of singing in front of them. While you'd think Johnny Depp would be used to it, having starred in Stephen Sondheim's Oscar winning film adaptation of 'Sweeney Todd' back in 2007 and appeared in a number of Hollywood blockbusters with the likes of Morgan Freeman, Helena Bonham Carter, Angelina Jolie, Christian Bale and John Malkovich. However, he admits he found his role as the Wolf 'daunting' even if it was a 'joy' to be involved. 'It's one of those moments that you realise you will never in your life have an opportunity like that again, as an actor or as a musician', he confesses, in the run-up to the film's release.
